Do More Men Or Woman Get Sleep Apnea?
While men do get sleep apnea more often than their female counterparts, this doesn’t mean that women are immune from the condition. In the US, as many as one in 10 women are believed to have sleep apnea. Once they reach a postmenopausal age, women are just as likely as men to develop sleep apnea. Although risk factors including age, gender, obesity and family history can increase one’s risk for sleep apnea, the condition can happen to anyone—so consult your physician if you believe you may have sleep apnea.
