Do you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom more often than you used to? Poor breathing during sleep might be one of the last things most people would attribute this to, but on today’s episode, ear, nose, and throat doctor Steven Park explains how the two are directly related.
He explains the physiology behind the causes and effects of snoring, the physiologic response to the temporary cessation of breathing during sleep, and how these issues can lead to all kinds of health problems, from headaches and weight gain, to more frequent urination at night.
He also explains exactly what’s going on in the body when snoring occurs, and why every person on earth is susceptible to developing breathing problems. He discusses some of the options for obstructive sleep apnea treatment, and a few ways to mitigate the severity of snoring.
