Snoring - Symptoms, Causes and Treatments

Snoring is the sound made during sleep.

Also known as snoring or snoring, the sound emitted can be very annoying to your partner and can even lead to marital problems.

After all, a good sleep night It is essential for your well-being.

Snoring tends to affect men more than women and is often related to weight gain.

However, gender differences tend to diminish from the age of 60.

What Causes Snoring?

As we said above, snoring is simply a sound.

This sound is emitted due to vibration of some upper airway structures while sleeping.

The narrower this area is, the more vibration there will be, leading to a very annoying snore.

This makes it difficult for air to pass into the lungs which causes snoring.


As we said earlier, snoring is directly linked to weight gain. But not only.

Other causes often pointed to snoring are related to sagging upper airway tissues.

Given that this sagging is normal and usually occurs in all individuals between 30 and 40 years, snoring becomes more annoying with age.

Other causes that may cause snoring (or aggravation) include the very prominent tongue base, tonsil hypertrophy or poor nasal breathing.

However, account must also be taken of the genetic aspect.

Situations such as the very narrow roof of the mouth or the very recessed chin may also lead to snoring.

It is important to note that it does not always snore the same way.

For example, when you are extremely tired, have eaten a “heavy” dinner, drank alcohol, or some kind of muscle relaxant, anxiolytic or antidepressant, all of which can make you snore even louder or more intensely.

Snoring Treatments

It should be noted that while total elimination of snoring is very difficult to achieve, there are some treatments that help decrease snoring to lower levels, considered normal or reasonable.

Some of the most effective snoring treatments include:

  • Adoption of a healthy lifestyle:

This one healthy lifestyle consist of avoiding alcohol intake 2 to 3 hours before bedtime.

Avoid "heavy" meals at dinner.

Physical activity practiced at the end of the day.

If you are overweight, then adopting this lifestyle necessarily means losing that weight.

  • Use of nasal patches:

Given that the nasal stickers Not only are they easily accessible but easy to use, they are a fairly common treatment among snoring people.

However, the effectiveness of this type of stickers varies from person to person and the causes of snoring itself.

  • Pro usetheses or apparatus:

When your chin is set back, one of the most recommended treatments is the use of a prosthesis or mandibular advancement device.

In this way, this device makes your jaw advance a few millimeters while you sleep causing it to slow or even stop snore complete.

We hope that with this information you can improve your quality of life.
