Snoring in kids could mean other problems, doctors say
If so, read up. It turns out that what seems like an annoyance is actually an alarm bell. New research conducted by otolaryngologists at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroitfinds that snoring is a bigger risk factor for stroke and heart attack than smoking, being overweight, or high cholesterol. According to research by Robert Deeb, MD and Karen Yaremchuk, MD, snoring can reveal damage to the carotid arteries the arteries that supply oxygen-rich blood to the brain. The study which has been submitted to the journal The Laryngoscope, will be presentedin Scottsdale, Arizona on Friday at the 2013 Combined Sections Meeting of the Triological Society .

It is a precursor to hardening of the arteries responsible for many vascular and heart diseases. Snoring is more than a bedtime annoyance and it shouldnt be ignored. Patients need to seek treatment in the same way they would if they had sleep apnea, high blood pressure or other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, said Robert Deeb, otolaryngologist at Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, the journal The Laryngoscope reports. Our study adds to the growing body of evidence suggesting that isolated snoring may not be as benign as first suspected. So instead of kicking your snoring bed partner out of the room or spending sleepless nights elbowing him or her, seek out medical treatment for the snorer, added Deed, according to a Henry Ford statement.
