Join endocrinologist Sarah Swarts, MD
, for an evening discussion on the diabetes connection to sleep apnea — a condition where even 10 hours of “sleep” each night can lead to fatigue-filled days.
Sleep apnea affects a large proportion of the population — but those with diabetes are at a higher risk. Getting sleep apnea under control can improve blood sugar levels, which can reduce complications such as heart and kidney disease. Controlling your diabetes can help you sleep better, and sleeping better can help control your diabetes.
The seminar takes place Wednesday, Jan. 22, 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, conference rooms A and B, in Corvallis. Call 541-768-5260 for more information.
This event is part of the Sleep Apnea Support Group
which holds regular meetings throughout the year. It is sponsored by the Samaritan Sleep Disorders Center
, and is open to anyone with sleep apnea, as well as their family and friends. New attendees are always welcome to join.
