Snoring is simply a vibration in our throats while we sleep, which is caused by a narrowing of the upper parts of our airway. Many of us may snore occasionally, but if you or your partner’s snoring is leading to sleepless nights, then you should consider seeing your locally-based Consultant ENT Surgeon at Hillsborough Private Clinic.
Snoring has been linked to obstructed breathing, or Sleep Apnoea Syndrome, a more serious condition in which you regularly stop breathing while you sleep. This occurs when the narrowing of your airway is causing a severe blockage in your breathing. Sleep Apnoea can increase your risk of obesity, heart attack, stroke, heart failure, and diabetes.
