"More and more research is showing that OSA is an independent risk factor for diabetes (and for most cardiac and cardio-vascular conditions, as well as arterial hypertension)," says Dr John Corbett, Specialist Sleep Physician and Neurologist at SNORE Australia. "This means that all patients with type 2 diabetes should be screened for OSA, particularly as up to 80% of OSA sufferers do not complain ofthe classic symptoms of snoring, waking unrefreshed, morning headaches, daytime sleepiness and tiredness. Their OSA may therefore be harming their health but remain undiagnosed and untreated for many years. There is also a significantly elevated risk of motor vehicle accidents from untreated OSA, especially in patients who drive for a living", reports Dr Corbett
SNORE Australia operates private-hospital sleep investigation units in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania, and also offers bulk-billed sleep studies in a number of locations. It works closely with referring doctorsto increase awareness of OSA and of its association with diabetes:"We want to educate patients about their condition and encourage them to discuss their diabetes and sleep-related problems with their GP and if one is available, with a Sleep Physician - correct diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnoea with an overnight sleep study can minimise it as a risk factor in diabetic patients, greatly improving both their glucose control and their long-term health and well-being" says Dr Corbett.
