Is snoring only caused by being overweight? I am asking because my husband has started snoring recently but he is really skinny so I can't understand why he is doing it.

Hi,
Snoring happens when you can't move air freely through your nose and throat during sleep. This makes the surrounding tissues vibrate, which produces the familiar snoring sound. Many factors, such as the anatomy of your mouth and sinuses, alcohol consumption, allergies, a cold, pregnancy, allergies, obesity and your weight, can lead to snoring.

Overweight can be one of the factors of snoring, but along with that there are so many reasons like,
#1. Your Physical Structure
#2. Nasal & Sinus Problems
#3. Alcohol, Smoking & Medications
#4. Sleeping Posture

Snoring is a sleep disorder that happens when you can't move air freely through your nose and throat while sleeping. As you breathe, the flow of air makes the tissue in the back of your throat vibrate producing the annoying snoring sound. The sound usually comes through the nose, mouth or combination of the two.

You have to add some special care in your daily lifestyle and include some bedtime remedies if you have to Stop Snoring naturally.

Being overweight is definitely a factor in snoring but there are many other reasons why people snore, such as; having a cold or any sinus issues, after drinking alcohol, allergies and even just from the anatomy of a person's mouth. If it's really bothering you, ask your husband to check with the doctor what might be causing it.

Can exercising help with snoring problems? I am generally trying to lose weight and tone up my shape but am also hoping to deal with my snoring.


: Losing weight is very often the most helpful way to deal with a snoring problem. Exercising doesn't directly stop you from snoring but if you are working to tone up your arm and upper body muscles, you are likely to also tone your throat muscles which can help reduce snoring.

It's worth a try and if nothing else you will at least be in good shape!

My son snores really loudly. He sleeps with his mouth open. Is this what's causing the snoring? Would it help if he closed his mouth?


Snoring with your mouth open is the most common way that people snore. It's usually indicative of a problem with the tissues in the throat (ie maybe too loose and therefore causing a blockage in the airways).

You can't make somebody close their mouth when they are sleeping especially if their breathing feels restricted, which is why they are opening their mouth.

What are the common causes of snoring?


People snore for all sorts of different reasons but here are some of the main ones;


1. Age - as you get older snoring is more common as muscle tone decreases

2. Body build - Men have narrower air passages and are more likely to snore. Also some people's anatomy is such that is makes snoring more likely.

3. Sleep position - sleeping on your back makes snoring more likely

4. Alcohol and medications - these relax muscles and tissues which contribute to snoring

5. Sinus/ nasal problems

6. Being overweight - more likely to have excess flabby tissue in the throat which blocks the airways.

I have bad allergies and I think it's making me snore. My wife is getting so cross with me. Any suggestions?


Allergies can really cause congestion which then leads to snoring as blocked airways cause vibrations of throat tissue and that's what makes the snoring noise.

Trying using anti congest ants and / or nasal sprays for a few days. But you shouldn't use these medications for long as sometimes they can actually make the problem worse, so make sure you follow your doctor's instructions.

I seem to snore a lot lately even though I am not overweight and don't even drink alcohol. Someone told me that changing your sleeping position can help. Should I avoid sleeping on my back?


When you sleep on your back, your tongue falls
backwards into your throat which narrows the airways and can lead to snoring.




Sleeping on your side is more likely to free up the
airways and reduce the likelihood of snoring.




I did once read that if people keep turning back onto
their side, they can sew something uncomfortable like a small tennis ball into
the back of their pajamas so that they feel a lump whenever they try and move
onto their back - but I\'m not sure if this would actually work.

I am overweight and my wife says that is the reason that I snore. But I think she is making it up. Why would my weight be affecting the way I sleep?


Your wife is actually right on this one! Being overweight can lead to extra tissues at the back of the throat. These tissues narrow the airways and this causes a vibration which is the snoring sound.

Other factors can also be the cause of your snoring but if you lose some weight you may find that the snoring improves.
