Emmy and Dr. Suarez
On today’s DiabetesPowerShow, Charlie Cherry, Chris Daniel, and Lori Cherry welcome back, live in-studio,
Dr. Gil Suarez. This time, he is joined by his 'OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA TEAM’. You can also listen to the last time Dr. Suarez was on our show… ‘Show #130 Diabetes and Your Teeth’ (Oct 29, 2015)
On show #149 with Dr. Rachakonda D. Prabhu, we talked about Obstructive Sleep Apnea. He shared a variety of treatments, with CPAP as the "Gold Standard" therapy for the condition.
Many people, diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea are “non-compliant", because of the difficulty of wearing a CPAP mask. For many people, refusing to wear the mask can be very dangerous, even fatal, to their health.
Today's show is for those "CPAP intolerant" folks, who would like to have their lives back. Dr. Suarez and his team share with us some Alternate Methods for Testing and Treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Emmy is the person who will get the ball rolling, and walk you through the process. She will assist you, as Dr. Suarez helps you achieve your goal of lessening the impact of Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
