Sleep apnea

Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night’s sleep, you might have sleep apnea. Patients with primary aldosteronism are more likely to have a form called obstructive sleep apnea. The exact relationship is not known, but some researchers suggest that the accumulation of fluid common in primary aldosteronism leads to higher resistance to breathing in the air pathway when a person lies down.
