20 Celebrities Diagnosed with Sleep Apnea

Jerry Garcia

Though the iconic singer and guitarist ultimately died from complications of diabetes and drug-use, he was diagnosed with sleep apnea back in the 90’s before it was a well-known disorder

Garcia also had issues with drug addiction, particularly cocaine and heroin. This made both his diabetes and sleep apnea worse over time. His addiction had gotten so bad that the Grateful Dead had to give him an intervention to stop.
