A new study has shown that older people with disruptive sleep problems like apnea have earlier onset of cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease.
While a strong cause and effect was not explained by the study, it theorized that disturbance of oxygen supply could be causing impairment. It found that sleep disturbance caused cognitive impairment 11 years earlier at 72 instead of 83.


Sleep apnea also lowers sleep quality, which may bring on cognitive impairment, as good quality sleep is said to be restorative for the brain and body.
The study also found that Alzheimer's disease caused dementia occurred in such people at 83 years and not at 88 years.
