Snoring is noisy breathing during sleep and a very common problem among people of all ages and both genders. It may occur nightly or intermittently. Persons most at risk are males and those who are overweight, but it is a problem persisting among both genders.
Snoring becomes more serious as people age and can cause disruption to one’s own sleep or the sleep of the partner. It may also lead to fragmented and un-refreshing sleep which translates into poor daytime performance.
