Snoring, in addition to being annoying to spouse has actually bneen shown to cause increased carotid atherosclerosis. The carotid supplies blood to the brain. Sleep apnea is a more severe condition that can result in heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, gastric reflux, worsening of diabetes, short term memory loss and many other dire conditions. Patients with untreated sleep apnea have a 36% decrease in 8 year survival compared to treated patients. Snoring is the number one warning sign of sleep apnea.
The good news is that CPAP, the gold standard of treatment is extremely effective in treating sleep apnea. The bad news is that 60% of patients cannot tolerate CPAP.
