Snoring

Many people think snoring is normal because almost half of American adults snore at least occasionally. However, if you snore it means your airway is obstructed, which may affect the quality of your sleep. When your body cannot breathe well, it will wake you up as a natural reflex.

Your airways may be obstructed for many reasons. You may be suffering from allergies, a cold or another infection that is causing mucus to build up in your airways. By treating these conditions, you can stop the snoring and sleep better.

Some lifestyle changes may reduce snoring. Avoid alcohol or sleeping pills, which may cause your jaw muscles to relax too much during sleep. Extra weight can also cause your airways to become partially closed, so you may need to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight to prevent snoring.

Snoring is a common sign of sleep apnea, though not everyone who snores has the condition. If your snoring is loud and occurs often, talk to your physician to be tested for sleep apnea. Sleep apnea may have serious effects on your health, raising your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

Indiana University Health Sleep Disorders physicians can help you rest easier by correcting the problem that is causing your snoring. From continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines, dental appliances or upper airway surgery, our physicians offer comprehensive treatment options for quieter nights.
