Snoring

Snoring occurs when the airway is partially obstructed during sleep, and is often an indicator of sleep apnea.

Snoring is considered a problem if it regularly wakes a sleep partner, which often causes that person to then lose sleep or have poor sleep. In some cases snoring can be decreased by avoiding alcohol in the evening, by losing weight, or by sleeping on one’s side.

If you snore frequently or loudly, you could benefit from a Sleep Study to determine if you are suffering from Sleep Apnea, and if there are ways to help you (and your bed partner) sleep more restfully.
