Sleep Apnea

Chronic Tiredness and Sleepiness: Could It Be Sleep Apnea?

Do you often feel tired and sleepy throughout the day, even if you slept for eight hours or more the night before? Do you snore loudly or wake up frequently during the night? If so, you might have sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a condition where your breathing is interrupted while you sleep. This can happen dozens or even hundreds of times per night, leading to a variety of symptoms during the day, including fatigue, headaches, and difficulty concentrating.

One of the most common types of sleep apnea is called obstructive sleep apnea, where the airway becomes partially or fully blocked during sleep. This is often caused by factors like obesity, smoking, and alcohol consumption, but it can also be due to anatomical factors like a deviated septum or enlarged tonsils.

If left untreated, sleep apnea can have serious health consequences, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and even an increased risk of car accidents.

The good news is that sleep apnea can be diagnosed and treated with a simple home sleep test. If you have symptoms of sleep apnea, such as chronic tiredness and sleepiness, talk to Dr. Nafsi about getting tested. If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, treatment options can include lifestyle changes, such as losing weight or quitting smoking, or using a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine while you sleep.

Don’t let sleep apnea go untreated. Seek a consultation with Dr. Nafsi to discuss your symptoms and get the care you need to sleep soundly and safely.

Smoking and Vaping: A Dangerous Habit You Should Quit Today

Smoking and vaping are some of the most common habits that people engage in, but they come with a hefty price to your health. Tobacco smoking is known to cause a range of health problems including lung cancer, respiratory disease, and heart disease. Similarly, vaping can also be harmful to your health and is not recommended as a safer alternative to smoking.

While vaping has gained popularity in recent years, it is important to note that it still contains nicotine, which is highly addictive and harmful to your health. The long-term effects of vaping are still unknown, but studies have shown that it can cause lung damage and increase the risk of developing respiratory disease.

Whether you smoke or vape, it’s never too late to quit. There are many resources available to help you quit smoking or vaping, including nicotine replacement therapy, counseling, and support groups. Quitting smoking or vaping can greatly reduce your risk of developing serious health problems and improve your overall quality of life.

In conclusion, smoking and vaping are dangerous habits that should be avoided at all costs. If you currently smoke or vape, consider seeking help to quit and improve your health today.


Lung cancer and risk factors

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, and early detection is critical for successful treatment. While smoking is the most common risk factor for lung cancer, there are other factors that can increase a person’s risk of developing the disease.

Some common risk factors for lung cancer include:

1. Smoking: This is the most significant risk factor for lung cancer, as smokers are 15 to 30 times more likely to develop the disease than non-smokers.

2. Exposure to secondhand smoke: Non-smokers who are exposed to secondhand smoke also have an increased risk of developing lung cancer.

3. Exposure to radon: Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally in soil and rock. It can seep into buildings and increase the risk of lung cancer.

4. Exposure to asbestos and other chemicals: People who work in certain industries, such as construction and manufacturing, may be exposed to asbestos and other chemicals that increase the risk of lung cancer.

5. Family history: People with a family history of lung cancer may be at increased risk for the disease.

While some risk factors for lung cancer cannot be avoided, such as family history and exposure to radon, there are steps you can take to reduce your risk. Quitting smoking is the most important thing you can do to reduce your risk of lung cancer. Avoiding exposure to secondhand smoke, radon, and other chemicals can also help.

If you are at increased risk for lung cancer, talk to your physician about screening. The American Cancer Society recommends that people at high risk for lung cancer receive an annual low-dose CT scan to detect lung cancer early. At RPC, we offer an online quiz to help determine if you are at high risk for lung cancer and should consider screening. You can also contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Nafsi to discuss your risk factors and screening options.

Remember, early detection is key to successful treatment of lung cancer. Don’t wait until you have symptoms to get screened. Take control of your health and talk to your physician about lung cancer screening today.
