Yes. That is why the recommendation is to assess children with significantly enlarged tonsils/adenoids for sleep apnea. If present, intervention is usually warranted. This answer is purely informative and does not substitute for a proper assessment by a sleep specialist. Jean-Jacques Rajter, MD READ MORE
This response does not substitute for a medical evaluation. In my opinion, if sleep apnea is suspected, an evaluation is indicated with the sleep specialist. Jean-Jacques Rajter, MD READ MORE
The short answer to your question is yes. The long answer to it is much more complex. A sleep specialist will need to assess the reason why you are experiencing insomnia. Depending on the reason, treatment would be different. There may be a component of sleep apnea, other medical conditions, as well as primary insomnia. Jean-Jacques Rajter, MD. READ MORE
Good afternoon, Snoring may be associated with undiagnosed sleep apnea and I would recommend that he be assessed by a sleep specialist in your area. Snoring may also be due to other factors such as nasal congestion, deviated septum, and other factors unrelated to sleep apnea. Even so, follow up is still advisable.

Depending on the underlying issue triggering somebody’s sleep disturbance, a variety of relaxation techniques may be helpful, including yoga. This presumes that more serious problems have already been ruled out by a sleep specialist. I would recommend you follow up with a sleep specialist to assess your specific issues.

My answer does not substitute for a proper medical evaluation. Without addressing the specifics of your mother's medical problems or rendering a medical opinion, the most straightforward way to proceed is seek help from a sleep specialist. People with Alzheimer's do suffer from sleep disturbances and this would need to be evaluated by a healthcare professional. This work up would likely include a sleep study. She would likely benefit from a sleep center based sleep study as opposed to a home sleep study, based on her Alzheimer's diagnosis. READ MORE
The answer to your question is not necessarily as simple as it appears without knowing more about you underlying medical problems. My recommendations would be to follow up with a local sleep specialist so you can be fully assessed and appropriately treated. READ MORE
