25% of adults snore regularly
You may not realize you’re snoring every night, but if you have a partner, it’s a good bet they do! Snoring not only affects how well you sleep, but it can cause your partner to lose significant sleep as well. Snoring can indicate a number of health issues, including:
- nasal congestion
- nasal polyps
- deviated septum
- sleep apnea
22m adults have sleep apnea
Most people who suffer from sleep apnea go undiagnosed. If sleep apnea goes untreated, it can potentially lead to life-threatening health complications, like high blood pressure, heart attack, or even stroke. Sleep apnea warning signs include:
- persistent snoring
- waking and gasping for air at night
- daytime drowsiness, inability to concentrate
- headaches in the morning
- irritability, moodiness
- difficulty staying asleep at night
Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Loud Snoring
Many people snore on occasion, when they’re congested because of a cold or allergies, for example. However, persistent, loud snoring can indicate a deeper issue. When your airway becomes obstructed by the muscle tissue at the back of your throat, causing it to close up as you breathe in, it’s called Sleep Apnea. This is a serious illness that actually causes you to stop breathing. As a result, your blood does not carry enough oxygen to your brain, which then senses that you are not breathing and wakes you up. This cycle continues throughout the night, keeping you from getting the quality sleep you need and putting undue stress on your system.
