Treating Alzheimer's sufferers for a sleep disorder that causes heavy snoring can boost their memory, a new study shows.

Treating snoring 'could help Alzheimer's sufferers' memories'
article in the Telegraph


"Scientists found that helping patients get a better night's sleep could help them think more clearly.

They believe that the findings suggest that the symptoms of dementia could be exacerbated by the snoring condition called obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).

While it is unlikely that the problem is the cause of the devastating neurological condition, the lack of sleep and disruption it creates could cause many patients' symptoms to worsen, according to researchers.

The Alzheimer's Society called for further research into the treatment, which it said was potentially "good news" for some of the 700,000 people in Britain's who sufferer from the disease.

Previous studies have shown that sleep apnoea is more common among Alzheimer's patients than in the general population.

One study found that up to 40 per cent of patients suffered from the condition."

Snoring and Sleep Apnoea have a common cause, and that is obesity/fluid retention/sodium retention/salt sensitivity. To reduce the effects of that common cause and therefore reduce or cure snoring and/sleep apnoea it is necessary to reduce salt/sodium intake to a minimum.

Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, heart attack, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
