Weight Loss

Have you been struggling to lose weight and not getting a good night sleep?  It may be linked to sleep apnea.  Sleep regulates hormones that control weight loss and weight gain; namely Leptin and Ghrelin.  These hormones become unbalanced with poor sleep causing weight gain. As you gain weight it becomes more likely that your breathing obstruction will become greater, leading to, you guessed it, worse sleep.  It is truly is a vicious cycle. And it can only be stopped by treating your sleep apnea.  And we can only tell if you have sleep apnea with a sleep study.  So let your St. Augustine dentist, Dr. Steven Freeman, help you get started today, to get a good sleep tonight!
