Sleep is treated as an interruption in our busy lives and we choose to ignore the importance of it. Studies have suggested that people who get less than 5hrs sleep a night have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
If you know you snore, wake up tired, have unexplainable symptoms like headaches and mood swings you could have obstructive sleep apnea.
Researchers believe that less than 6 hours of sleep causes inflammation, increases blood pressure, heart rate and elevates blood glucose levels.
Unfortunately there is no miracle cure for snoring.
But all is not lost, there are lifestyle changes that will not only help your snoring habit but will also promote good health.
Studies have found that as many as 40% of couples will sleep in different beds at some point and 60% of upscale homes will be planned with two master bedrooms this year.
The Couples Sleep Study at Rush Medical Center found that snoring is the third most recognized medical reason that couples file for divorce.
If you are sleeping with a partner who snores it is more than likely you are sleep deprived.
