Thin people can get sleep apnea
Don't think it's impossible to get sleep apnea if you are thin.
Yes, many apnea sufferers are overweight but a recent article in The Herald-News in Illinois drove home the point that anyone can be affected.
It mentions a 170-pound man of average height whose wife noticed he was snoring loudly and waking up gasping for air. He did not feel rested upon waking up.
A sleep study diagnosed his apnea.
Just like non-smokers can get lung cancer and non-drinkers can get liver cancer, this ailment also doesn't discriminate.
So please keep an eye out for interrupted sleep in your loved ones of all sizes.
