One of the most common issues in America is being overweight. In fact, nearly 70% of all adults are considered overweight, and 35% of those individuals are considered obese. This is literally a growing problem, and has led to increased rates of both diabetes and heart disease. On top of this, a sleep study in Garland has actually shown that obesity can also cause people to develop a sleep disorder called sleep apnea. To further complicate things, sleep apnea can also lead to excessive weight gain, creating a very destructive cycle. March is actually Sleep Apnea Awareness Month, and in that spirit, Dr. Keane Fedosky is going to discuss how obesity and sleep apnea are related to one another, and how this can affect you. (more…)

You might think this is because you’re getting older, but it might actually be connected to your sleep apnea in Plano. It not only can affect your sleep, but your memory as well. (more…)

The week of October 1st through October 7th is dedicated to Sleep Apnea Awareness by the American Sleep Association. The mission behind Sleep Apnea Awareness week is to provide education and awareness regarding the common sleep disorder. It is estimated that 18 million Americans suffer from a form of sleep apnea; however, that number is expected to be far higher because it is believed two to four percent of all Americans have undiagnosed sleep apnea. With the sleep disorder holding the potential to cause serious and potentially deadly complications when left untreated, we are joining the mission to raise awareness about the condition. If you suspect you may have sleep apnea, this first question you need to ask yourself is, “Where is a sleep clinic near me?” As a dentist for sleep apnea, we have the answers to your questions.

As your sleep clinic in Garland, TX, we are here to put your worries to ease with the information you need to know. At Sleep Rehab, we work with local physicians to provide the necessary sleep studies needed to determine if you are suffering from sleep apnea.

Snoring may be something that people joke about, but in truth it can be a sign of a much more serious medical condition called sleep apnea. That annoying sound that emanates from the mouth while you sleep is caused by the vibration of soft tissue in your throat as air passes by. Bigger problems arise, however, when this same tissue blocks your airway. To treat snoring and sleep apnea in Plano, TX, Dr. Keane Fedosky at Sleep Rehab will create a customized oral appliance that helps maintain an open airway so you can breathe and sleep at night.

How’d you sleep last night? If the answer to that question is something along the lines of, “I think I slept, but I feel so tired all the time,” then the culprit may be sleep apnea. This medical condition causes temporary pauses in breathing throughout the night. There are two types of sleep apnea. The less common is called central sleep apnea and occurs because the brain fails to signal muscles to breathe. The more common is obstructive sleep apnea, which happens when soft tissue in your throat blocks your airway. Either type can have serious health consequences including heart disease. To reduce the risk of heart disease and treat sleep apnea, Dallas residents turn to Dr. Keane Fedosky and his team at Sleep Rehab.

If you had to guess the percentage of couples that sleep separately at night because one person snores, what would you say? Perhaps you’re a romantic, so you’ll guess low at five percent. Or maybe you’re more of a realist, so you think 10 or 15 percent might be accurate. Well, studies indicate that some 25 percent of couples are willing to report that they sleep separately, so researchers believe the actual percentage is likely much higher. Moreover, that snoring can be a sign of a more serious condition called sleep apnea. If you sleep with a snorer (or if you don’t because you’re in another room), then contact Sleep Rehab. Dr. Fedosky and his team treat sleep apnea in Dallas, TX, and the surrounding communities, so everyone can sleep well and together.
