A new study has revealed that people who snore and experience sleep apnea – momentary loss of breath while sleeping, start to experience memory loss and cognitive decline 10 years earlier than people who never experience such things, or those who use breathing machine to ease or treat their apnea. Elderly people with Alzheimer’s or cognitive issues were found to experience memory loss by age 77, most especially if they’d had problems with obstructed sleep breathing or apnea, as against age 90 for people without any breathing problems. Out of the participants in the study, those that showed earlier indications of memory loss went on to have Alzheimer’s disease or moderate cognitive impairment most especially if they earlier had sleep apnea that was not treated. This study research supports that fact that sleep apnea is not only “a severe and serious disease associated with cardiovascular morbidity or mortality, but also brain health and neurocognitive health,” said Dr.

The health experts state that sleep apnea remains under-diagnosed, while frequent snoring, choking or gasping during sleep does not help even when you try to make up for the sleep at other times.
Published in the journal Neurology, the researchers said sleep apnea or difficult breathing while sleeping is common among 53% of men and in over 26% of women.
People who used CPAP machine to ease their sleep breathing problems as well as those who didn’t started experiencing mental decline at about the same time and age. Morgenthaler, a sleep-disordered breathing expert at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
