Underlying Medical Conditions

Sometimes snoring can be the result of a medical condition. It is important that this condition is recognised, diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. Don’t put ill health down to snoring. If in doubt – check it out!

One of the most usual illnesses that make us snore is the common cold. The airways become obstructed which either causes snoring in a non-snorer or makes a snorer worse (or louder!) Since there really is no cure for a cold besides allowing it to run its course, you need to wait for your cold to clear up and you will find that your snoring problem should vanish with it.

Other infections can also make breathing difficult and cause the sound of snoring as you struggle to draw air through blocked nasal passages in your sleep. Find the infection, treat it, cure it your snoring should be cured as well.

Tonsillitis is another medical condition which causes snoring. This is usually accompanied by swollen lymphoid tissues located at the back of the throat, or adenoids. Your tonsils are small oval masses of tissue on either side of the back of your mouth, and they are important to your body’s immune system. It is no longer recommended to remove tonsils surgically, so you need to find out why they are swollen and find a solution.

Swollen adenoids are a cause of snoring usually in young children. They do not constitute a serious health risk, so you may have to sit it out and let the condition reverse itself in time. Often, adenoids shrink and disappear by adolescence.

Snoring can also be caused by a deviated nasal septum. This is a serious condition where the wall that separates the nasal passages is crooked causing breathing difficulties. The good news is that this can be corrected by surgery.

These are just of few of the medical conditions which have snoring as a symptom. If you are in any doubt that your snoring is caused by ill-health, then you must seek medical advice straight away.
