Non-surgical relief from snoring and sleep apnea

Women with a BMI over 30 who have Type II diabetes have a whopping 89% chance of having obstructive sleep apnea. These women may even be young and not fit the typical profile of sleep apnea patients, which skews toward males over 50. Because of this, sleep apnea is often not tested and the patient continues to feel crappy.

Check your BMI on this chart below based on your height and weight (it will be our secret for now) and if you have Type II diabetes and you said, “Ruh-roh”, call us today for a consultation. By the way, treating sleep apnea helps with weight loss AND weight loss helps reduce sleep apnea.

Use the handy BMI table below and look up your height. Do you weigh that much or more for your height? If so, your BMI is 30+. If you have Type II diabetes, please call for a consultation – you could have obstructive sleep apnea not being recognized by your primary care physician.
