Sleep apnea often comes with metabolic syndrome. Sleep-wake regulation is accomplished through a complex set of interactions.
If you take long naps or particularly feeling sleepy during the day time, you are on the way to develop high cholesterol, high blood pressure, excess fat around the waist and high blood sugar, all of which increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. These symptoms are known as metabolic syndrome.
Metabolic Syndrome is not a disease; it’s a combination of disorders that multiply a person’s risk. This includes obesity, high blood pressure, cholesterol and insulin resistance
These risk factors double your risk of heart diseases, which can lead to heart attacks and heart strokes. They even increase the risk of diabetes by five times.
Metabolic syndrome can be controlled by making healthy choices.
