Snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea are serious and life-long medical condition that can impact every aspect of your life. It can affect your sleep, health and quality of life. It has been linked to hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, work and driving related accidents and stroke. These are very common pathologies (it affects more than 40% of the population). Loud snoring can be a symptom of moderate sleep apnea. This condition is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night's sleep, you might have sleep apnea.
During sleep, muscles relax, including those that control the tongue and throat. The soft tissue at the back of throat can sag, narrowing and constricting the airway. Some people have genetically predisposition and other have atrophy of the tissues in your airway due to mouth breathing. If you or a loved one have symptoms such as snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, pauses in breathing or teeth grinding while sleeping, treatment is essential.
