Sleep Centers of Middle Tennessee

Radio Show for April 22

Posted on 20 Apr 2012 - 11:56 AM by Dr. Brian Wind

This week the Sleep Doctors are talking about Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Diabetes.  If you have diabetes or know someone who does, tune in this Sunday morning at 9am!

Even if you don’t have diabetes, this will be a fascinating show.  Some quick stats:

  • 83% of Type II Diabetics have OSA
  • 94% of physicians are aware of the link between OSA and diabetes, yet only 47% do any screening for it

The relationship between OSA and diabetes is so strong that the American Diabetes Association recommends that all Type II diabetics be screened for Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

There are also some new treatment standards for diabetes patients will be released soon. The Sleep Doctors will share this new information you Sunday at 9am!  Tune in and call in!
