Once your symptoms and medical history have been analyzed, your doctor will refer you to a sleep disorders clinic to determine if you suffer from apnea through tests that monitor your sleep periods.
If the diagnosis is confirmed, you should probably consult specialists in cardiology, neurology, or otorhinolaryngology to define the causes of its appearance. When it comes to mild apnea problems, it is common that you are recommended to exercise, lose weight, and stop smoking, in addition to prescribing medications to treat the symptoms.
However, for milder cases of sleep apnea, your doctor may recommend only a few lifestyle changes, such as losing weight or quitting smoking. However, if the problem is not corrected, surgery will be necessary, either bariatric or to enlarge the airways.
