I am wanting to find out if anyone knows of people who have died due to sleep apnea. My 26 yr old husband died on Dec. 15, 2007 due to undiagnosed sleep apnea. They ruled everything else out on the autoposy and determined it must have been Sleep apnea since he snored sometimes. I still remember listening to him sleep in our recliner snoring and hearing him gasp for breath. I told him to go to the doctor because it might be sleep apnea but he told me he didn't have a problem. He was only 20lbs overweight and very active. We ate extremely healthy but just had sluggish metabolisms. We were even losing weight. I am now a 24 yr old widow. I would like to find other widows/widowers or family members who have lost a love one due to sleep apnea. I would appreciate any help. I am now researching sleep apnea and finding out more about the disease. I only wish that I could of forced him to go to the doctor for his snoring. But no one could of guessed that a slightly overweight 26 yr old healthy male would just die in his sleep one night. We were only married 1 1/2 yrs. Any help would be appreciated.
