Snoring? Your Weight May Show It!

added on: May 25, 2012

If you snore, you probably know it. You may have been told by your mate or have even woken yourself up with a snort! Snoring is disruptive to peaceful, restful sleep. It contributes to daytime fatigue, and is now being linked to Metabolic Syndrome.

It is estimated that one in four adults in the U.S. has Metabolic Syndrome. This increases your risk for heart disease, diabetes and stroke. Additional symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome symptoms are having bulging belly fat, high blood pressure and high blood sugar.

If you are a heavy snorer or have difficulty falling asleep, you have twice the risk for developing Metabolic Syndrome. However, sleeping soundly and without snoring can be achieved easily and comfortably through our custom-made oral appliances. These are small and designed to fit your mouth so they do not interfere with sleep and are easy to insert and remove.

Protect your health and get a good night’s sleep! Call toll free 1-855-9-Smiles to arrange a free consultation to discuss an oral appliance for you.
