About Snoring

According to statistics, around 45% of US Adults snore at least once in a while, and 25% of people snore regularly while sleeping. In fact, around 37 million US adults are snorers!

Snoring is not only a common reason for disturbed sleep, but it can also lead to several uncomfortable health conditions like concentration issues and drowsiness.

Reasons for Snoring

Reasons for Snoring

Ever wondered what makes you snore?

There can be several reasons for what makes people snore:

  • Allergies and cold: Any kind of nasal congestion can cause snoring. The nasal passage gets blocked with excessive mucous secretion, which causes difficulty in breathing, resulting in loud sounds otherwise known as snoring.
  • You have a big tongue: Your tongue gets to relax only when you are fast asleep. Larger tongues can roll back and obstruct the air passage, and this can lead to snoring.
  • Obesity: When you are obese, the fat tissues strain your throat which can cause snoring.
  • Aging: With old age, your body muscles tend to lose elasticity causing your throat to become narrower, causing you to snore while asleep.
  • Enlarged tonsil glands Enlarged tonsil glands can cause a blockage of your air passage which causes snoring as well.
  • Sleep apnea: Among all the causes of snoring, sleep apnea is the most serious. Sleep apnea is a breathing disorder that prevents proper airflow into the lungs. It reduces the inflow of oxygen and can also be fatal if not diagnosed and treated in time.
