SLEEP DISORDERED BREATHING
Snoring can be an indication of sleep apnea, a serious condition that affects your overall health short and long term. The condition indicates that there are hundreds of episodes where you stop breathing during the night robbing your body of needed oxygen. Sleep apnea can lead to hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and stroke. Proper diagnosis should be made by a physician who specializes in this area.
