Below you will see a problem about sleep apnea disorder
About 25% of men and nearly 10% of women suffer from this disorder in which breathing stops for short periods during sleep. The gender gap for Female sex hormones seem to be protect against apnea which partially explains why a women’s at risk increase after menopause when hormones dip. Another factor that men’s are longer and thus more prone to collapse. When men have apnea they snore loudly and et sleepy during the day. For femaly symptoms may be subtler and they may not snore at all. Instead women usually complain of fatigue mood changes or the inability to be efficient as a result women and their doctors are less likely to suspect apnea as the cause of their symptoms. Women are more likely to be evaluated for hypothyroidism or depression first.
