It is reasonable to think everyone snores at least once in their lifetime. Whether from a cold or temporary allergy, congestion often leads to snoring. Occasional snoring is also expected when we drink alcohol, take a sedative or feel overtired.

Habitual snoring occurs all the time and is the result of another disorder. Everyone does not snore on a regular basis because they do not suffer from another disorder. When you snore regularly, it indicates another more serious condition such as sleep apnea or a breathing problem. It is important to determine why you snore to resolve the problem and avoid future health risks associated with snoring and lack of sleep.

Snoring Is A Problem

Snoring is considered a problem and not something “everyone does”. Regular snoring is not a normal condition. According to Dr. David Gozal, University of Louisville researcher, “Snoring should always be considered a problem, since snoring indicates the presence of increased upper airway resistance during sleep.”

When you snore, others are sure to let you know about it. Sometimes we don’t realize we are snoring until someone else tells us. The sooner you know about your snoring, the sooner you can resolve the problem. You bed partner will like sleeping with you better, too!

Snoring Is Risky

Besides being annoying, snoring is risky. Health conditions, including high blood pressure and heart irregularities, sleeping problems and breathing difficulties can develop as a result of snoring. Adnan I. Qureshi, M.D., State University of New York at Buffalo professor of neurosurgery, states, “We found that certain sleep characteristics such as sleeping for more than eight hours, the tendency to fall asleep during the day, and the tendency to snore influence the likelihood of having a stroke. Individuals who snore severely or have trouble staying awake during the day should see a doctor to find out why.”

Mark Mahowald, University of Minnesota Medical School professor of neurology, said, “One complete night of sleep deprivation is as impairing in simulated driving tests as a legally intoxicating blood-alcohol level.”

Finally, according to Eve Van Cauter, Ph.D., a professor of medicine at the University of Chicago, “metabolic and endocrine changes resulting from a significant sleep debt mimic many of the hallmarks of aging. We suspect that chronic sleep loss may not only hasten the onset but could increase the severity of age-related ailments such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity and memory loss.”

Habitual snoring is not normal and can lead to sleep deprivation and other health problems. Despite popular opinion, not everyone is doing it!
