Roughly 80% of people with sleep apnea don’t know they have it! This is because they can never witness their own night time symptoms.
More then 40 Million people are walking around with life threatening sleep disorders and they do not even know it. Even the Giants Super Bowl champion Lawrence Taylor was susceptible to it. Thankfully he was diagnosed and treated. Unfortunately for his friend, Reggie White, he was not as lucky. Reggie White died on December 26, 2004, at age 43 from a cardiac arrhythmia, which many believe was partly caused by his untreated sleep apnea. The football legend’s CPAP machine was found at his bedside.
