Undiagnosed sleep apnea

Reggie White Sleep Disorders Foundation

Welcome to the Reggie White Sleep Disorders Research and Education Foundation. Located in West Allis, Wisconsin, we are dedicated to keeping alive the memory of a wonderful man and football superstar through providing education and research that allows all people to learn about sleep disorders and to access treatment equipment, regardless of their socio economic status.

Millions of Americans suffer from sleep disorders, but most don’t understand what is interrupting their sleep, and many are unable to get the diagnosis and treatment they need that can help them improve their health and even save their lives!

Sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening disorder characterized by:

  • Loud snoring
  • Pauses in breathing
  • Choking and gasping during sleep
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness.

It is found most often in middle age men, often those who are overweight or who have excess tissue in the neck area, but it also affects women and children.  Women are more likely to develop sleep apnea post-menopause.
