Snorers without sleep apnea had thicker carotid arteries than nonsnorers, according to a small study to be presented at a meeting of the Triological Society. Carotid arterial thickness among snorers in the study was comparable to that of people who smoke or those who have diabetes or hypertension. "Our study adds to the growing body of evidence suggesting that isolated snoring may not be as benign as first suspected," lead study author Dr. Robert Deeb said.
