Possible link between depression, sleep apnea
March 30, 2012 (WLS) -- New research by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows a possible link between sleep apnea and depression.
The study surveyed nearly 10,000 patients being treated for depression.
The CDC claims they found symptoms of the sleep disorder were associated with many depression symptoms such as feelings of low self-esteem and hopelessness.
Researchers say the association of symptoms was not affected by age, race, weight, or gender.
The findings are published in the April issue of the journal Sleep.
