New findings show a renewed link between snoring and heart disease as reported by Health.com.
Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh followed more than 800 people over three years. Those that initially reported snoring heavily were more than twice as likely to develop key risk factors for heart disease, diabetes and stroke, which are indicated through blood pressure, blood glucose, belly fat and cholesterol levels.
In addition to snoring, other key indicators for these risk factors were trouble falling asleep or waking up feeling tired at least three times a week.
If you are having trouble sleeping or your partner mentions that you snore loudly, be sure to talk to your doctor. These are more than just annoyances. They are symptoms of serious health risks.
