Snor­ing is a low-fre­quen­cy sound phe­nom­e­non that often accom­pa­nies a per­son­’s breath­ing dur­ing day­time or night­time sleep. Accord­ing to sta­tis­tics, such an unpleas­ant symp­tom most often appears after 30–40 years and may be the result of age-relat­ed changes in the body. Men, due to var­i­ous cir­cum­stances, are more prone to snor­ing, because they are less like­ly to mon­i­tor their health, more often smoke and drink alco­holic bev­er­ages.

Most men have absolute­ly no con­trol over the state of their body, and in the pres­ence of snor­ing in a dream, they are in no hur­ry to seek help from an oto­laryn­gol­o­gist or ther­a­pist, con­sid­er­ing the sound phe­nom­e­non to be a harm­less fea­ture of the body. But, unfor­tu­nate­ly, not many peo­ple know that snor­ing dur­ing sleep is an alarm­ing symp­tom of res­pi­ra­to­ry dis­or­ders, which can be a sign of sleep apnea (short-term paus­es in breath­ing dur­ing sleep that can lead to irrepara­ble con­se­quences in the form of oxy­gen defi­cien­cy). Due to con­stant snor­ing in a dream, you may expe­ri­ence:

    drowsiness during wakefulness;
    constant fatigue;
    memory deterioration.

Snor­ing in men can occur at any age. The sound symp­tom is often man­i­fest­ed in those who sleep with their mouths open, have anatom­i­cal defects in the mouth and nose, or have a mal­oc­clu­sion. Only a doc­tor can accu­rate­ly deter­mine the caus­es of snor­ing, even if they seem obvi­ous.

Symptoms and causes of snoring in men

Symptoms and causes of snoring in men

Snor­ing in a man can occur due to weak­en­ing of the mus­cles of the tongue, soft palate and phar­ynx. It is the tis­sues of these parts of the oral cav­i­ty that par­tial­ly or com­plete­ly block the air­ways. At the same time, the air flow increas­es, cre­at­ing vibra­tion and pro­vok­ing the occur­rence of snor­ing in a dream. Weak­ened mus­cles can be the result of: ENT dis­eases, endocrine dis­rup­tions, neu­ro­mus­cu­lar dis­eases and anom­alies in the struc­ture of the skull.

Due to dif­fi­cul­ty breath­ing, oxy­gen star­va­tion can occur, which neg­a­tive­ly affects the entire body, includ­ing the cen­tral ner­vous sys­tem.

Phys­i­o­log­i­cal caus­es of snor­ing include:

    excess weight;
    age-related changes in the body;
    formations in the throat or nose (polyps, cysts);
    nasal congestion;
    inflammation of the palatine tonsils;
    curvature of the nasal septum;
    elongated soft tongue, etc.

Obe­si­ty is one of the main caus­es of snor­ing. Breath­ing dis­or­ders dur­ing sleep in over­weight peo­ple are observed almost 5 times more often than in those whose weight is nor­mal. The thing is that fat in the cer­vi­cal and chest area press­es on the air­ways, nar­row­ing them.

Exter­nal fac­tors can also pro­voke snor­ing, in par­tic­u­lar, the wrong pos­ture, tak­ing sleep­ing pills or alco­hol intox­i­ca­tion.

The sound symp­tom accom­pa­ny­ing the breath­ing of a sleep­ing per­son should in any case be alarm­ing. If snor­ing in a man or woman is accom­pa­nied by short paus­es in breath­ing, then you should seek the advice of a doc­tor as soon as pos­si­ble.

Features of the treatment of snoring

Snor­ing is treat­ed with med­ical meth­ods, depend­ing on the caus­es of the symp­tom. Apply drug ther­a­py, all kinds of aux­il­iary devices and surgery. Snor­ing treat­ment will depend on the age of the patient and the pres­ence of chron­ic dis­eases, includ­ing dis­eases of the car­dio­vas­cu­lar, res­pi­ra­to­ry, endocrine and ner­vous sys­tems.

If a man snores on the back­ground of an aller­gy, then the prob­lem will dis­ap­pear imme­di­ate­ly after a full recov­ery. The same applies to a run­ny nose with a cold, as well as inflam­ma­tion of the pala­tine ton­sils.

Sur­gi­cal inter­ven­tion may be rec­om­mend­ed for anatom­i­cal defor­mi­ties that can be traced in the oral cav­i­ty or nose. Also, the oper­a­tion is indi­cat­ed for polyps and cysts, when the for­ma­tion blocks the air­ways and makes breath­ing dif­fi­cult. Most often, surgery is per­formed using laser or radiofre­quen­cy radi­a­tion. Such oper­a­tions allow to reduce the vol­ume of tis­sues in the soft palate, which leads to a decrease in their mobil­i­ty dur­ing breath­ing.

Elim­i­nate the caus­es of snor­ing and with the help of intra­o­ral devices. The patient can be assigned spe­cial sil­i­cone caps that are put on the low­er and upper den­ti­tion. This manip­u­la­tion allows you to increase the space of the phar­ynx, which facil­i­tates breath­ing dur­ing sleep. Sil­i­cone appli­ca­tors, sim­i­lar to baby nip­ples, are also com­mon, designed to irri­tate the mus­cles of the tongue and phar­ynx, which reduces tis­sue vibra­tion and, accord­ing­ly, reduces snor­ing.

Most of the intra­o­ral devices are freely avail­able, but you can­not choose and buy them your­self even in a phar­ma­cy. Only a com­pe­tent doc­tor will be able to choose the right device and pro­vide safe snor­ing treat­ment at home.

You should not buy prod­ucts that elim­i­nate snor­ing from dubi­ous sell­ers. Pil­lows, masks, pills, plas­ters, clips and “mag­ic” sprays most often do not give any pos­i­tive effect. Non-med­ical prepa­ra­tions with­out con­sult­ing a doc­tor can harm health by pro­vok­ing the appear­ance of addi­tion­al patholo­gies, such as aller­gies or poi­son­ing.

How to prevent snoring in your sleep?

How to prevent snoring in your sleep?

Pre­ven­tion of snor­ing is espe­cial­ly effec­tive in cas­es where the sound symp­tom that accom­pa­nies the breath­ing of a sleep­ing per­son rarely appears. There are sev­er­al help­ful tips:

boats, boating, men
acupuncture, spa, massage
ai generated, men, karate
    Do not take sleeping pills or sedatives without a doctor’s prescription. If the medicines are prescribed by a medical specialist, then in no case exceed the recommended doses. Be sure to report your snoring to your doctor.
    Watch your body weight. Try to eat right and do not load the stomach before bed.
    Do not drink alcoholic beverages.
    As you fall asleep, take a comfortable position. Try to sleep on your side. This position of the body will help to avoid falling tongue.
    With a runny nose, keep the nasopharynx clean.
    Do not forget about the temperature in the bedroom and air humidity.

If snor­ing occurs fre­quent­ly, then you should def­i­nite­ly report the prob­lem to your doc­tor. Make an appoint­ment with a gen­er­al prac­ti­tion­er or an oto­laryn­gol­o­gist.
