There is a danger of this serious disease in people who snore more, if the solution is not found then the problem will increase.

Many people have a habit of snoring while sleeping. By the way, it is common to see such effects along with aging. But a study suggests that people who snore are almost twice as likely to have a stroke as compared to quiet sleepers. Irish researchers have found that snorers have a higher risk of stroke. About 4500 elderly people were included in this study. The study looked at whether sleep problems were associated with the likelihood of suffering a stroke.

According to The Sun report, Dr Christine McCarthy of Galway University said that our results suggest that sleep problems can increase a person’s risk of stroke. According to the study, if you have more than five problems related to sleep, then the risk of stroke can be 5 times more than those who do not have any problems related to sleep. Around one million people have a stroke in the UK each year.

Risk of many diseases including dementia

This fatal condition usually arises due to obstruction in the blood vessels supplying blood to the brain. The problem of snoring is seen in almost two out of five British people. While one out of five people do not get 7 to 9 hours of sleep at night, which doctors often recommend. Previous research has shown that sleeping too little can increase your risk of stroke. As well as many diseases including heart disease and dementia can also occur.

Lack of sleep increases the risk of stroke! 

In a new study published in Neurology, it has been found that problems related to sleep have worked to increase the risk of stroke. 2243 people who had suffered a stroke were compared with 2253 people who did not suffer from the condition. They were questioned about their sleep patterns. They were asked about the number of hours they slept a night, their sleep patterns, whether they snore, and whether they had breathing problems during sleep. 

Improve sleep patterns  

People who said they slept less than five hours were 3 times more likely to have a stroke than those who slept 7 hours. People with sleep apnea (difficulty in breathing while sleeping) are also three times more likely to have a stroke. Dr. McCarthy says that improving sleep patterns may also reduce the risk of stroke.
