Most of those conditions are not directly a result of sleep apnea. You can develop any of those conditions by not getting enough quality sleep. So, if you think you have sleep apnea, but you sleep just fine a feel somewhat well rested in the morning...you probably don't have much to worry about. I mean, you can take that paragraph and replace 'sleep apnea' with smoking, lack of exercise, bad diet, unresolved stress, etc. You get the point, just don't blow sleep apnea out of proportion.
