The Different Types of Sleep Apnea
Dr. Jeremy Tabak, Medical Director of the Galloway Sleep Center with Baptist Health South Florida, talks about the two different types of sleep apnea.
He also affirms the most important risk factor of sleep apnea is weight. 80 % or more of the condition occurs in people who are overweight or obese. It is more common in men until women achieve the age of menopause.
Lucette Talamas, Registered Dietitian with Baptist Health South Florida, says Registered Dietitians advise the patient during the weight maintenance phase.
