Do you wake up frequently during the night despite a well-established sleep routine? Does your partner complain about you snoring— or do they tell you that you gasp for air during sleep? You may have sleep apnea, a sleep disorder that disrupts your ability to sleep and even breathe. If left untreated, sleep apnea can be life-threatening. Sleep apnea symptoms don't just lead to nuisance tiredness and dry mouth in the morning. When left untreated, you can be more at risk for chronic health conditions like hypertension, stroke, diabetes, obesity, and heart attacks.
Studies show that without proper sleep every night we may be more prone to dementia, disease, memory issues, cognitive struggles, and other health-related difficulties. The lack of sleep has also been tied to an increased risk in heart attack and stroke. While millions of Americans receive treatment for sleep issues, studies reveal that the vast majority of people remain undiagnosed.
Beyond the annoying noise, can snoring be a sign of a more serious problem? The short answer is – maybe.
