Dementia: Common sleep disorder that increases your risk – how you snore could be a sign

Sleep apnoea can occur in anyone, regardless of age, but is more common in elderly people.

Use of cigarettes, alcohol and certain drugs can irritate or sedate the muscles of the throat to cause obstructive sleep apnoea.

There are also heritable factors, such as enlarged tonsils, narrow throats and thick necks.

Your doctor can provide advice on being diagnosed with a sleep disorder, as well as suggest methods for treating it.
