Why snoring is dangerous for women — New Study

The hearts of women who snore appear to become damaged more quickly than those of men who “saw lumber” at night, a new study suggests.

Evaluating nearly 4,500 British adults who underwent cardiac imaging, researchers also learned that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may be vastly underdiagnosed among snorers.

This finding surprised study author Dr. Adrian Curta, who heads cardiac imaging at Munich University Hospital in Germany.

“A further surprise was the different manifestation of disease according to gender,” Curta said. “Females show different alterations in cardiac [measures]. A possible reason for this could be that women with OSA are more vulnerable to cardiac alterations.”

The research was to be presented Thursday at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America, in Chicago.
