Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder, where the upper airway becomes periodically obstructed during sleep. Sleep apnea affects between 17 to 24 percent of men, and in women, it is between 5 to 9 percent. Traditionally, inflammation was thought of as a symptom of sleep apnea. However, it was found that it can precede the disorder and potentially opens the door to new ways of treating and predicting sleep apnea in individuals, reveals a new study.
