Sleep Disorder Increases Risk of Heart Disease

New Swedish research suggests that difficulties in breathing during sleep in middle-aged adults may increase the risk of coronary artery disease by up to five times.

However, the study by researchers at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg indicates that successful treatment of the sleeping disorder significantly cuts that risk. They studied more than 300 individuals between the ages of 30 and 69 who suffered from difficulty breathing during sleep.

Their work is published in the “European Respiratory Journal”.
