One out of three Americans suffer from a sleeping disorder, yet 95% remain undiagnosed and untreated. Sleep apnea is more common than asthma, however, untreated sleep apnea puts you at increased risk of falling asleep in dangerous situations like driving, as well as risk for stroke, heart attack, obesity and depression.
