I'm not saying who but someone I know (could be me or someone else) had heavy snoring but that kinda faded.

That person is over weight. that person should be 80lbs but that person is 150lbs also that person wets the bed, Please tell me if "that person" Has sleep apnea cause that persons mom thinks so. Is she right?

Answer


Because that person is overweight, and worried about sleep apnea, he should learn more about:

Loud and irregular snoring is the most soundly symptom that can make you think of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. However, if that person stops breathing during sleep, you can be sure he/she has sleep apnea.

The bed wetting symptom, or nocturia, can be attributed to sleep apnea, but remember that is not the main symptom, which is when you stop breathing during sleep.

In fact, bed wetting among children, who are less likely to have other medical causes of nocturia, is a strong indicator of sleep apnea.

People with apnea have frequent night time urination because the apnea increases the pressure in the right side of the heart. This sends a hormonal signal that there is too much liquid in the body and urine is produced.

The person you are talking about should get an appointment with his doctor and ask for a sleep study, to be completely sure he/she has sleep apnea.

And remember, not all causes of bed wetting are related to sleep apnea. Prostrate problems, for example, may cause increased need for urination. Discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor.

I hope it helps. Don't be afraid to comment back.
