RISK FACTORS FOR SNORING AND SLEEP APNOEA

Gender: Men are more likely than women to experience snoring or sleep apnoea.

Weight: Overweight or obese individuals have a higher risk.

Airway Structure: A narrow airway, long soft palate, or enlarged tonsils can increase risk.

Alcohol Consumption: Alcohol relaxes throat muscles, contributing to snoring.

Nasal Problems: Issues like a deviated septum or chronic congestion can lead to snoring.

Family History: A family history of snoring or
obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a significant risk factor.

Frequent, Loud Snoring

It’s not just a nuisance for your sleep partner, loud snoring can also be a key symptom of obstructive sleep apnoea. It's caused by partial obstruction of your airways and can be an indicator of underlying health issues.

Choking or Gasping for Air

This alarming symptom occurs when breathing is interrupted during sleep, often a clear sign of sleep apnoea. It can often be frightening and disrupt your sleep quality significantly.

Daytime Fatigue

Despite a full night's sleep, feeling excessively tired during the day is a common symptom of disrupted sleep patterns, often caused by snoring or sleep apnoea. This can affect your concentration, mood, and overall quality of life.

Morning Headaches

Waking up with a headache can be a result of fluctuating oxygen levels due to interrupted breathing. This symptom shouldn't be overlooked as it indicates that your body is not getting enough restorative sleep.

Mood Changes

Irritability, depression, and mood swings can often stem from poor sleep quality associated with snoring and sleep apnoea. Consistent lack of restful sleep can take a toll on your emotional well-being.

Difficulty Concentrating

Struggling with focus and concentration can be a direct consequence of sleep disturbances caused by snoring or sleep apnoea. This can impact your daily productivity and cognitive functions.
