Several recent clinical studies show that ED (Erectile Dysfunction) and Sleep Apnea go “hand and hand”. The reasons have to do with the lack of oxygen caused by Sleep Apnea and the hormonal changes that are brought about by the lack of oxygen.
The good news and that within one month of being treated for sleep apnea, the ED corrects itself in the majority of cases. That is significant! Whether the patients used a Sleep Appliance (MORA) or a CPAP, the ED improved and all without the use of Viagra. As many know, this and similar drugs are very expensive and Medicare does not pay for this. Medicare does, however, pay for sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment.
Sleep Apnea appliances are very effective and you are not restricted by the machine. You will not have strap marks on your face or have to sleep entirely on your back. Sleep Apnea Appliances allow you the freedom to move about while you sleep and easily get up at night for the restroom.
If you are interested in knowing more, call my office and get a appointment for a consultation. I can help you with your ED or even get rid of the CPAP for a much more comfortable and convenient option of the Sleep Appliance.
