Causes Of Snoring

  • Allergies

  • Nasal congestion

  • Structural damage to the nose

  • Consumption of alcohol

  • Being overweight or obese

  • Pregnancy

  • Swelling of the muscular part of the roof of the mouth

  • Swollen adenoids or tonsils, especially in children

  • Medications, including sleeping tablets

  • Sleep position – sleeping on your back may cause your throat muscles and tongue to relax; the tongue is then more likely to fall back and compress the airway, causing snoring or making snoring louder.
