According to recent diabetes research, those people that snore heavily and frequently face a 50% greater chance of developing diabetes than those that sleep quietly. The study, undertaken by Yale University, investigated sleep apnoea in relation to diabetes .
According to the research, those people that snore regularly experience greater changes in bodily metabolism, which can then lead to diabetes. Sleep apnoea can cause a collapse in muscles in the airways.
The study reportedly commented: “Sleep apnoea is significantly associated with the risk of type 2 diabetes, independently of other risk factors such as age, race, sex or weight . And an increase in the severity of snoring is associated with a raised risk of diabetes,” the study has shared.”
