Sleep Apnea Prevention
In terms of sleep apnea prevention, there are some steps you can take to minimize or control the symptoms:
- Avoid alcohol and medicine that causes drowsiness before bed
- Maintain a healthy, balanced diet
- Regularly exercise
- Quit smoking
That being said, some patients might have sleep apnea due to their genetics, or other reasons such as the shape of their air and nasal passages that cannot be avoided. While a majority of the time sleep apnea is not a preventable disorder, it still is treatable.
