In brief: Oxygen deprivation

Oxygen is essential for the proper functioning of the cells that provide energy, in all it's forms, to the body.
Sleep apnea means that the individual is stopping breathing for at least 10 seconds, and that the resultant lack of oxygen causes the blood level oxygen to decrease. Thyroid dysfunction can disrupt hormones and cause many problems.
