5 Celebrities With Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that has potentially severe symptoms. A doctor will diagnose sleep apnea through a thorough evaluation. When an individual receives a diagnosis of sleep apnea, it may come as a shock, or they may feel overwhelmed with the prescribed treatment plan. But, individuals with sleep apnea aren't alone. Even the rich and famous suffer from sleep apnea. Let's take a look at a few celebrities with sleep apnea.

 Celebrities With Sleep Apnea

Shaquille O'Neal, Amy Poehler, Arianna Huffington, William Shatner, and Reggie White all have a sleep apnea diagnosis. Shaq went to a sleep study at Harvard to determine what was causing his sleeping troubles. Amy Poehler uses a CPAP machine to assist with her treatment of sleep apnea, especially snoring. Arianna Huffington, a co-founder of The Huffington Post, is so dedicated to having a good night's sleep even wrote a book titled "The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night at a Time."

If concerns about sleep apnea affecting your life and preventing the enjoyment of various activities, look to William Shatner. William Shatner has not slowed down since his sleep apnea diagnosis. Even at the age of 90, he is out and doing comedy, music, and event hosting. The NFL player and WWE wrestler Reggie White eventually passed away from a heart attack due to complications related to sleep apnea.

These celebrities with sleep apnea all sought treatment for this potentially dangerous disorder. Treatment options for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) include:

  • OAT (Oral Appliance Therapy)
  • CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine
  • Nasal patency (if necessary and requires an ENT physician)

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.
