Doctor :   Hello Thank you posting your query on ATD. Snoring is the vibration of respiratory structures and the resulting sound, due to obstructed air movement during breathing while sleeping. Snoring is a common problem that makes person and partner uncomfortable. It certainly has adverse effects on health. Generally speaking the structures involved are the uvula and soft palate. The irregular airflow is caused by a passageway blockage and is usually due to Sleeping on one's back, which may result in the tongue dropping to the back of the mouth. Throat weakness, mispositioned jaw, fat gathering in and around the throat, obstruction in the nasal passageway, alcohol or other drugs relaxing throat muscles may lead to snoring. There are many ways to treat snoring. Here are some suggestions. 1. Reduce your weight if possible 2. Sleep on left or right side 3. Use thin pillow 4. There are anti snoring devices available in the market like nasal clips, teeth support. 5. Use saline nasal drops 6. Some surgeries also possible. Well, what will be best for you; will better be decided with consultation with your doctor. Wish you a good health
