Lack of sleep and not getting enough rest might be more harmful than you think.
Sleep deprivation may be caused by chronic stress and anxiety. Overwhelming work and everyday commitments might lead to a lack of rest. The aforementioned factors are pushing your health down the path of many serious illnesses, including high blood pressure, heart disease, and depression.
Another cause of poor-quality sleep and the feeling of not getting enough sleep through the night is ‘obstructive sleep apnea’, a repetitive collapsing condition of the airway throughout the night. As a result, the body does not receive enough oxygen, resulting in a loss of quality sleep throughout the night and waking up to spend another day in the morning dissatisfied, irritable, and unrefreshed.
Snoring is one of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea, a breathing condition that is more common in males, overweight individuals, those who smoke and drink on a regular basis, the elderly, and women approaching menopause.
The symptoms will cause disruptions of deep sleep, which, when left untreated, can increase the risk of brain and cardiovascular disease such as arrhythmia and cerebral ischemia, as well as decreased testosterone, which has a significant impact on sexual performance.
We therefore provide a ‘Sleep Test’ at RAKxa Wellness, which is consulted by a medical doctor from VitalLife at Bumrungrad Hospital. This is done to assess the patient’s sleep quality to diagnose obstructive sleep sleep apnea, which can disrupt sleep quality. This exam will help you in correctly understanding and identifying the root causes of your unrefreshing or poor-quality of sleep, which can be caused by a range of factors.
