Benefits of treatment for snoring
Tired of feeling tired? Want your energy back? It all comes down to getting a good night’s sleep - both for you and your partner.
There are several studies that point to the negative effects of snoring on partners.1,2,3 Their sleep is disrupted, so they can suffer from all the consequences of poor quality sleep: tiredness, daytime sleepiness, mild depression, and irritability. So if you take measures to stop your loud snoring the first one to thank you will be your partner.
Your body will thank you too. Snoring in and of itself is an indication that your body is not getting the oxygen it needs to function at its most optimal level. Even ‘simple’ snorers can be at greater risk of cardiovascular diseases than non-snorers,3 and are more likely to develop arterial hypertension within 4 years of beginning to snore.5
And that’s just snoring - the benefits of treating OSA have also been widely demonstrated. Effective therapy can also help alleviate other conditions often associated with sleep apnoea - such as heart disease,6 diabetes7 and obesity8,9 and even help prevent these conditions from developing.
