According to statistics, one in ten people snore, with the vast majority being men. Although snoring is not an illness, it can become a serious problem. Snoring can reach about 90 decibels which is as loud as a jackhammer, a subway train, a hand drill, power mower, snowmobile, or a motorcycle. Partner’s snoring can lead to even 2 hours of sleep loss, which consequently causes excessive tiredness, poor concentration or lowers sexual desire.
Snoring can also disrupt the snorers sleep and when it is accompanied by sleep apnea (pauses in breathing) it becomes harmful for their health. If left untreated, sleep apnea can result in a growing number of health problems, including: high blood pressure, stroke or heart failure.
That is why, it is worth to visit our ENT doctor who would check the cause of snoring and offer an appropriate treatment available in our clinic so both you and your partner regain sound sleep!
