Alarmingly, one out of three snorers is women and they are quite worried about the health consequences. Specialists are blaming obesity for this problem, as many women are grappling with expanding waistlines and overweight issues. It is estimated that nearly two percent of women are suffering from sleep apnea, which ups the risk of heart disease.

According to Epworth Sleep Centre director, Dr Darren Mansfield, more number of women are now coming forward to seek help. This is due to increased awareness of this condition and associated risks.

"Certainly there's a strong link between sleep apnea and cardiovascular risk. I think that message is now out there. Women take their health quite seriously as a general rule and once there's a clear link to this and other health consequences, women perhaps even more so than men, are more likely to come forward and have the issue addressed, " he said.
