It should be treated in anyone.  Sleep apnea usually means that you are over weight.  Sleep apnea also increase your sympathetic tone which is doctor speak for increasing your adrenaline level.  Adrenaline is not good for your heart.  It is not only important that you treat the sleep apnea now (with bipap if recommeneded), it is also important to try an reverse the underlying cause and lose some weight.

I hope this helps.
