Deep vein thrombosis risk may be higher in people with sleep apnea

Posted on June 15th, 2012 No Comments

A study conducted by researchers in Taiwan suggests that people who have sleep apnea are at a higher risk of developing deep vein thrombosis.

The seven-year study examined more than 10,000 people, of which about half had sleep apnea.

During the study, 40 cases of deep vein thrombosis were diagnosed. Three quarters of them were in the sleep apnea group. This suggests that people with the condition are three times as likely to suffer these dangerous blood clots.

Like sleep apnea, certain oral contraceptives can increase a person’s chances of having a deep vein thrombosis. If you have taken Yasmin and suffered from its dangerous side effects, contact the Yasmin birth control lawsuit attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187.
