If you are overweight, your chances for having sleep apnea increase, dramatically. This is a serious condition that can compromise your health and impede your ability to control or lose weight.

Most people are aware of overnight sleep centers for testing for this condition. There are two tests offered where you can test for sleep apnea at home:

Overnight Home Oximetry
and Polysomnogram (PSG)

Here's a link to read about how the Overnight Home Oximetry equipment works...

If you suffer daytime drowsiness, diabetes, obesity, or frequently experience insomnia &/or snore, loudly, at night, I would talk to your doctor about getting tested for sleep apnea.
