You’re a chimpanzee!
MODERATE RISK: Your risk for sleep apnea is relatively low, if you’re a chimpanzee, since you get lots of sleep. However, that’s only if you feel great every day when you wake up.
If not, you could have moderate risk of sleep apnea. Do you feel sleepy during the afternoons, have trouble keeping your eyes propped open? Feel sleepy while you’re driving? It’s best to get tested, so you can find out.
