At CPAP Pro® we have helped thousands of patients suffering from OSA, also simply known as apnea. Often recognized by the long breathing breaks during sleep, a large number of those diagnosed suffer from loud snoring and interrupting wake ups at night. In this article we will outline 4 tips you can do in order to limit the snoring.
4. Losing Weight
Overweight individuals may have a higher chance of snoring. By working out daily and eating healthy, you can lose weight while also achieve less snoring. OSA is also more prevalent in obese- and overweight individuals, according to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
3. Exercising Daily
Working out daily might be a key for many snorers. Make sure your body is physically tired when going to bed. Patients changing their work out rituals have also seen a lesser need for addictive sedative medication and/or dangerous alcohol-intakes before bed.

If you are not suffering from a syndrome or disorder, simply changing your nightly position may help to solve your issues. Try a night on the side and see if there is any noticeably difference from prior nights.
