Sleep Apnea and Dementia: New Link Discovered

New Study Findings

New studies demonstrate that there is a link between sleep apnea and Alzheimer’s disease (a form of dementia). Sleep apnea triggers an increased memory loss. This ultimately leads to failure in functioning normally. The condition can be fatal. Sleep apnea can be addressed by living a healthy lifestyle. If you’re overweight, try losing weight by staying physically active. However, you can’t keep yourself from getting old. As one gets older, the chances for sleep apnea also increase. Experts recommend that people who snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night sleep should visit their doctor. They may be suffering from apnea.
