Why do people snore?
Snoring is a very common issue amongst people. It leads to lack of sleep, as well as the development of possibly fatal diseases, such as strokes, digestive disorders among other conditions.
Snoring is usually considered as a trivial condition, since it is underestimated for disturbing the spouse or the bed partner and not being a major risk to the person’s life. Many times the apnea is so drastic that the person stops breathing for several seconds, which leads to decreased oxygen in blood, thus causing medical conditions including heart disease, headaches, fatigue, Nocturia, etc. Research shows that snorers have an increased risk of suffering from various illnesses, such as OSA, high blood pressure, cancer, diabetes, coronary and brain hemorrhage.
Has anyone ever wondered what causes snoring or tried to understand it causes? There are several reasons people snore.
Snoring is majorly caused by the vibration in the soft palate, which leads to a strained lung. This in turn, reduces the oxygenation in the body. It could also be the result of relaxation that occurs in your throat muscles, which keeps the air way unobstructed, along with the any formation of excess tissue around the airway.
Is snoring common?
Yes! Snoring is a common phenomenon which has existed for as long as people have slept. Research and analysis based on the frequency of snoring shows that it is a common phenomenon with the presence of a snorer in nearly every second household. Men are more frequent snorers than women. This difference is equalized throughout the years of age maturity.
What causes a person to snore?
There are various reasons that lead to heavy snoring which include:
Alcohol Consumption This generally leads to increase in snoring, as alcohol intake relaxes the throat muscles and obstructs the airway. It is usually advisable to not go to bed inebriated.
Weight Gain- Excess weight either gained over a period of time or a sudden weight gain can be another reason behind the increased snoring. The reason could be excess strain put by fat tissues on your lungs or because of the fact that more oxygen is being used in the different parts of the body.
Sleeping on an improper pillow/bed- Overtly soft pillows or beds could also cause body’s form to collapse, thus leading to snoring. These things can usually be solved with a bed which is prescribed by your physician/chiropractor or can be simply exchanged for another firmer bed.
Sedatives or Antihistamines- Taking/consuming sedatives, such as sleeping pills, anithistamines, cold medicines etc. may also cause obstruction due to the relaxation of throat muscles. Such medicines should be avoided before bedtime as much as possible.
Apart from these, there are many genetic as well as other reasons, such as an injury to the nasal cavity which may be the cause for your snoring.
