Sleep apnea and snoring linked to cognitive decline
Sleep apnea and snoring linked to cognitive decline (April 20, 2015 - Insidermedicine)
From New York - A new report published in Neurology finds that heavy snoring and sleep apnea may predict earlier memory and thinking decline. Researchers studied the medical histories of over 2,400 people between the ages of 55 and 90 years. Results showed that those with breathing problems during sleep were diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment an average of 10 years earlier than those without those problems. Those with sleep breathing problems who required a CPAP machine were diagnosed with dementia 10 years later than those who went untreated.
