Your heart is in danger if:

You have a snoring problem

Sleep apnoea is a serious sleep disorder where your breathing repeatedly stops and starts while you sleep. This disorder is often associated with heart diseases. Snoring is one of the most common symptoms of sleep apnoea. A study found that chronic snoring is related to the thickening of carotid arteries in the neck. Thickening of carotid arteries in the neck is a sign of an incoming stroke or a heart attack. Snoring causes some obstruction in the airways inside the body through which oxygen travels. This obstruction may lead to a reduction in the oxygen supply to the heart and brain, and an increase in the risk of cardiac failure and strokes.

You have inflamed gums

Studies have found that the bacteria that cause gum diseases also have the risk of causing heart diseases. Some studies have also found that there are a lot of links between gum disease and heart disease. According to a study done by the American Journal of Preventive Medical in 2014, treating gum diseases was associated with fewer hospitalizations among people with heart diseases.

Your hormones are in danger if:

You keep forgetting little things
