Fairfield Dentist Warns of the Possible Link Between Sleep Apnea and Diabetes

Dr. Jerry Strauss Explains How Sleep Apnea Contributes to Poor Sleep Quality, Which Recent Research Reveals Can Lead to Metabolic Disease

FAIRFIELD, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- Dr. Jerry Strauss, a cosmetic dentist in Fairfield, strives to stay current with the latest research and developments in the field of dentistry. Among his most recent findings, Dr. Strauss has learned of a potential link between sleep apnea and diabetes. More specifically, he reveals that people who have consistently poor sleep quality are at a higher risk for developing metabolic diseases like obesity and Type 2 diabetes. While sleep deprivation can result from a number of factors, Dr. Strauss notes that sleep apnea is an especially dangerous, and somewhat common, condition that can affect one's sleep quality.

As mentioned in his recent blog post "Could Sleep Apnea Be the Cause of Your Diabetes?," the breathing pauses experienced by sleep apnea sufferers often interrupt the body's sleep cycle. As a result of this sleep disturbance, Dr. Strauss notes that patients often wake up feeling fatigued. Beyond these obvious signs of sleep deprivation, he adds that recent studies reveal interrupted sleep also negatively influences the body's ability to respond to insulin and typically increases appetite for energy-dense foods, a combination of which can lead to metabolic disease.

For patients who experience sleep disturbances in the form of obstructive sleep apnea, Dr. Strauss offers treatment options like the Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) device and oral appliances to help improve breathing. Referencing the recent studies, Dr. Strauss explains that addressing sleep apnea can help protect against future health concerns. The Fairfield dentist notes additional ways people can improve their sleep quality include:

  • Reduce stress levels
  • Create a sleep environment without television or computer interruptions
  • Follow a routine sleep schedule
  • Avoid late dinners and alcohol at night

Dr. Strauss hopes to create awareness of the problem by encouraging his Fairfield dentistry patients to seek treatment if they fear they may be suffering from sleep apnea. By taking the right precautions, he explains that people may be able to significantly lower their risk of developing serious health conditions like obesity and diabetes.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
