The Problem

Across the country, one out of 15 people have some form of sleep apnea making it as prevalent as asthma or diabetes. But in Wisconsin, according to The Wisconsin Sleep Cohort Study, that number could be one out of 9 among middle-aged women and as high as 24 percent among middle-aged men.

There are basically three different kinds of sleep apnea but all result in poor sleeping habits and an increased risk for many different health problems.
