According to an article by RT‘s sister-publication Sleep Review, four frequently overlooked conditions can negatively affect sleep. These conditions can cause residual sleep dysfunction even after a patient’s sleep apnea is treated with CPAP, according to the article.
The four conditions in focus are:
- Periodic limb movement disorder (PLMS) and restless legs syndrome (RLS)
- Fungal overgrowth in the sinuses causing sleep-disordered breathing
- Sleep-onset and sleep maintenance insomnia
Board-certified internist and integrative medical expert Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, discusses these disorders and offers insight on alternative therapies to help offset their impacts.
