Snoring. Most of us do it occasionally, and the majority of people see it as just a minor annoyance. However, it can be a symptom of more serious conditions, such as sleep apnoea, so if you are aware that you snore regularly and are worried you might have sleep apnoea (see below) it might be worth seeking expert advice.
As many as one in four people in the UK snore and it's thought to affect twice as many men as women, but what happens when snoring becomes dangerous?
Children that snore are more likely to do badly at school, a recent study finds. Researchers from Otago University have just released a report that highlights the link between snoring or other sleep disorders in children and the development of learning difficulties.
