Glendale Dentist Serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, and nearby areas in Arizona

In the June 15, 2010 issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine published by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, a new study reported a decrease in overall sexual satisfaction in men associated with OSA. OSA has been found associated with lower testosterone levels in men compared to controls, which may play a role in ED. One investigation found that severe OSA is a risk factor of ED. Moreover, ED associated with OSA may improve with CPAP or oral appliance therapy, or co-therapy especially for severe OSA. Hey guys, if there aren't enough critical health reasons to be tested for sleep apnea, especially if you are a snorer, here is another one to consider.
