What causes sleep apnea?
(Saint John, Canada)
I know that obesity can cause sleep apnea, but I heard that normal weight people can have this disorder.
What are the causes, to know from what I should keep away.
there are many causes of sleep apnea, and some of them you can't avoid, because are genetic causes.
For example, if a baby is born with Down Syndrome
or abnormalities of the soft tissue structure of the head
then he will probably develop sleep apnea.
If you are a normal person, but you start to gain weight, then you should know that overweight people with body mass index (BMI) greater than 25 are more likely to have sleep apnea.

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