Sleep Apnea: Right And Wrong Ways To Receive A Diagnosis

You may wonder how to figure out whether what you’ve been experiencing is actually the result of sleep apnea or if you are dealing with some other underlying issue. While you may recognize as you learn about potential side effects that can take a serious toll on your general well being that you should really receive a definitive diagnosis soon, you may not be entirely sure how to arrive at such an answer. Before you take this serious venture into your own hands, we suggest you consider our Celina, TX team’s recommendations regarding the better pathway toward the answers you need.

By Reading And Self-Diagnosing

No, we never suggest you attempt to diagnose yourself when it comes to sleep apnea (or anything else, really). While there is plenty of information online, both reliable and unreliable, even if you think you’re really onto something as you read through symptoms, our team reminds you that you are not a professional! You’re not a dentist nor are you a sleep expert, which means even a very educated guess may throw you off course! Remember, if it turns out you really need sleep apnea treatment but you don’t receive it, this can yield serious health threats. So, we never suggest diagnosing yourself.

By Coming In For A Professional Diagnosis

As you could probably guess, our team always advises you to come in to our practice to receive a professional diagnosis regarding your potential sleep apnea and your need for treatment. How can we tell whether this issue is affecting you, though, you wonder to yourself? You can barely tell on your own! Here’s what you can expect:

  • We will talk with you about your experiences
  • If sleep apnea sounds likely, we will provide you with a home sleep test that you will receive through
  • You may then mail your completed test to our practice
  • We will diagnose you based on your results
  • If you require treatment, we will provide you with effective care!
