If simple changes in your lifestyle, such as regular sleep hours and losing weight, have not eliminated your sleep apnea episodes, it is time to consult with a sleep specialist.
The specific causes of your sleep apnea can be evaluated, and an individual treatment plan can be designed for you.
Sleeping at a high altitude can worsen your sleep apnea because of the lower levels of oxygen.
If you have a loved one sleeping with you, this can be done alone at home, but if not you may need to visit a sleep clinic.
Avoid any type of drugs or alcohol if you are experiencing any type of sleep apnea.
If you think that you may have sleep apnea, set up a video of yourself as you sleep.
Just be sure that the video recorder has sound capability.
If you are going to a place located higher than what you are used to, take a CPAP machine with you.
