Snoring is linked to Alzheimer’s

Snoring is linked to Alzheimer’s disease, new research suggests.

Difficulty breathing while asleep accelerates memory decline in people at-risk of the condition, a study found.

Daytime sleepiness and sleep apnoea is also linked to impaired attention, memory and thinking in people who are genetically susceptible to the degenerative condition, the research adds.

Researchers hope the findings will support sleep-based treatments in people at-risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

Study author Dr Susan Redline from Harvard University, said: ‘Given the lack of effective treatment for Alzheimer’s disease, our results support the potential for sleep-disordered breathing screening and treatment as part of a strategy to reduce dementia risk.’
