You may be among the 45% of normal adults who snore at least occasionally or you likely know someone who does. Not only is snoring a nuisance, but 75% of people who snore have obstructive sleep apnea (when breathing is disrupted during sleep for short periods), which increases the risk of developing heart disease.
Fortunately there are many Cures and Remedies for Snoring.
If the simple lifestyle changes, and home treatments fail you can be fitted with a lower jaw-positioner (which resembles an athlete’s mouth guard). This device helps open your airway by bringing your lower jaw and your tongue forward during sleep.
Not everyone who snores has sleep apnea, and not everyone who has sleep apnea snores. So how do you tell the difference between normal snoring and a more serious case of sleep apnea?
The biggest telltale sign is how you feel during the day. Normal snoring doesn’t interfere with the quality of your sleep as much as sleep apnea does, so you’re less likely to suffer from extreme fatigue and sleepiness during the day.
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times. This means the brain — and the rest of the body — may not get enough oxygen.
