Sleep Apnea – Treat It Right!

The beginning of the New Year is an exciting time for football fans.  One can’t help but be glued to the television set when the best of the best teams take on each other in the playoffs, and with the playoffs currently in full force, each game is a thrilling must-see for any fanatic.

However, it can also be a disappointing time for fans whose favorite teams have made it this far in season, but then lose a game to another team.  Take for instance the Green Bay Packers.  Due to their recent loss to the New York Giants, they are no longer in the running for the Super Bowl, and the loss bumped the Giants up into a final four spot along with the San Francisco 49ers, the New England Patriots, and the Baltimore Ravens.  One of those four teams will now go on to be the Super Bowl LXVI Champion.

A Packer’s fan who is certain to be disappointed with the recent loss is Jason Wied, the team’s former vice-president of administration and general counsel.  Unfortunately, Wied resigned from his position with the team early this month due to an addiction he developed to an herbal remedy he used to treat his sleep apnea and insomnia.

Wied’s 11-year run with the Packers also included the additional duties of overseeing the team’s administrative operations, community outreach, public relations and security departments.  He entered a treatment center for his addiction back in November of last year, but resigned from the Packers in order to allow time for the changes he needed to make in his life due to his addiction.  He is still a fan and shareholder of the team, and stated that he and his family will continue to cheer on the Packers.

Like Jason Wied, do you also suffer from untreated or mistreated sleep apnea and excessive sleepiness while at work?  Diagnosis of sleep apnea can be done with an overnight sleep study, but once you have your diagnosis, a proven sleep apnea treatment like Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT), available from Dr. Dan Matthews at his Austin dental office can help get you back on track.

Studies in the past have indicated that an estimated 80 percent of men and 90 percent of women with moderate to severe sleep apnea go undiagnosed and that work productivity dropped due to employees with untreated sleep apnea.  Don’t let sleep apnea and improper treatment wreck your life and career.  Seek a diagnosis, and then seek a proper treatment that will work for you. Austin cosmetic dentist Dr. Dan Matthews can set you up with the proper treatment you need.  Call his office today or schedule an appointment online
