Researchers Explore Link Between Sleep Apnea and Depression

Posted: Updated:

A new study has found a link between sleep apnea and major depression.

Researchers with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention studied nearly ten thousand American adults.

They found those who suffered severe sleep apnea were more likely to develop symptoms of depression including hopelessness and feeling like a failure.

Sleep apnea causes snoring and disruptions in breathing while sleeping.
