Snoring Can Be a Sign of More Serious Health Problems

snoringSnoring is caused by the vibration of soft tissues at the back of the mouth. Snoring is not simply an annoyance; it could be a sign of more serious health problems.

Key takeaways:

· Snoring can be an early sign of more serious conditions such as sleep apnoea.

· Sleep apnoea is a common problem affecting 15 to 20 percent of adults who experience intermittent pauses in breathing.

· Untreated sleep apnoea may cause daytime sleepiness,  high blood pressure, stroke, poor management of diabetes, heart failure, heart rhythm irregularities.

To determine if the snoring is a sign of sleep apnoea, an overnight study in a sleep center is necessary. This type of supervised testing can evaluate for sleep apnoea as well as other sleep related problems.
