Are there lifestyle changes and recommendations that I can do myself to help manage my Sleep Apnea?
Yes, there are lifestyle changes that can be effective in managing obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
These changes may not completely eliminate the condition, but they can help reduce its severity and improve overall sleep quality.
Some recommended lifestyle modifications include maintaining a healthy weight through regular exercise and a balanced diet, avoiding alcohol and sedatives, quitting smoking, practicing good sleep hygiene, sleeping on your side instead of your back, and using nasal decongestants to improve nasal airflow.
Additionally, elevating the head of your bed and using devices such as nasal strips or nasal cones.
However, it’s important to note that lifestyle changes alone may not be sufficient.
