Health Consequences of Snoring

If it’s not you but your bed partner snoring, take the Sleep Observer Scale Quiz.

If you snore, you are not alone. Statistics indicate that approximately 40% of adults over 40 snore at least some of the time. Snoring interrupts the restful quiet sleep which is so important to you and your bed partner’s good health. It can lead to daytime sleepiness and fatigue which can impact many aspects of an individual’s life. It can also have many health consequences.

Snoring is associated with increased risk of hypertension as well as an increased risk of both cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease. Snoring, even without apnea, can lead to numerous arousals. Arousals have been linked to sympathetic nervous system activation which may provide a causal link between snoring and hypertension.
