ASK DR LYNNE LIM: SLEEP APNEA

Do you have problems sleeping through the night? Loud snoring, constantly feeling tired, waking up with a dry mouth; if these symptoms sound familiar to you, you might be suffering from sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a potentially serious disorder where a person's breathing is constantly interrupted during sleep. People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times. 

Dr Lynne answered readers' questions on sleep apnea.

Thanks for the D2D. Here are some cost estimates for sleep apnea treatment in Singapore: The initial cost would be the consultation ( from $150 ) and possibly a flexible nasoendoscopy cost ( from $250 ) to determine the levels of obstruction and medical issues that need to be man...

Hi Evelyn, Many spouses do suffer chronic fatigue themselves if they are not able to sleep due to their spouse’s snoring. Some wear ear plugs to sleep. However, it is important to remember that your husband may be snoring out an SOS for help. Snoring is not just noise, but ...

Hi Rozial, thanks for the D2D. Please refer to my reply on “ How to treat sleep apnea without CPAP or surgery? ” for conservative first line measures to treat sleep apnea. Additionally, surgical measures may be needed when these conservative modalities do not suffice,...

Thanks for the D2D. Snoring is not just noise. Not all who snore have sleep apnea, but snoring is a sign that you may have sleep apnea. In Singapore, a recent study found that 90% of those with already moderate to severe sleep apnea did not know that they had sleep apnea! Sleep a...

Thanks for the D2D. In sleep apnea, there is reduced oxygen in the blood from obstruction or collapse of the nose-oral-pharyngeal- laryngeal airway in sleep. This reduced oxygenation leads to highly significant long term side effects, and can be thought of as a silent killer really...

Thanks for the D2D, Losing weight will help to control sleep apnea if the patient is overweight. As it is a lifestyle and dietary change, the patient should always use it first line and it is also good for general health. It cannot completely cure sleep apnea if there are other c...

Hi Shilee, For starters, please refer also to my answer for “ How does one differentiate normal snoring from sleep apnea? " However, the only way to diagnose definitively if there is sleep apnea is with a sleep study. The sleep study is important not only to diagnose if ...

Hi Quen Sang, thanks for the D2D! People get sleep apnea if a block in the airway passage results in significant oxygen desaturation in sleep. In sleep apnea, there is reduced oxygen in the blood from obstruction or collapse of the nose-oral-pharyngeal- laryngeal airway. The ...

Hi Glenna, thanks for the D2D! That is a tough question! “The best ENT doctor” would depend on what the patient specifically needs, prefers and feels comfortable with. Some patients do not get to choose outside their insurance panels. Thus, there will not be one d...

Non-invasive, non-CPAP treatments are only considered for occasional or mild OSA, and if these are relevant: Your mom should avoid alcohol and smoking if there is the off chance she is on them. Your mom can try a change of sleep position to sleep on her side instead of on h...
