i agree to have an EENT specialist check up as best suggested, i had an EENT doctor look through me during one of my check ups for an ear problem, so he proceeded to check my nose and throat, he asked if do snore, told him that my wife and kids tell me i snore during sleep. the doctor told me that i have a thick tongue against the normal tongue thickness, he was suggesting a laser operation to lessen the thickness, i am too scared actually and its expensive



tongue is purely muscle (it is the strongest muscle in the body- joke!) , i don't really know how one can lessen the thickness of the tongue without affecting its function. not unless you have ranula/cyst/tumor/cancer on/in/under the tongue better leave it alone.

Snoring is caused when your tongue slides back and blocks your air passage. That's why most people don't snore if they sleep on their stomach...

Either get a CPAP machine or get UPPP operation...



For those interested to on getting a CPAP machine or an Apnea Test (for Obstructed Sleep Apnea) "paghihilik" just feel free to message to get more info in this case.

because I am overweight and with high blood pressure, the center suggested a sleep study, which I did, the 2 part sleep study consisted of the diagnostic portion and then the therapeutic portion. The diagnostic portion diagnosed me with mild to moderated sleep apnea. the therapeutic portion included a continuous positive airway pressure machine (CPAP) hooked up and the mmhg pressure was adjusted to the level I needed and be comfortable with it.

After six months of continously using the machine it produced the following:

1. No more snoring. The best judge to this my bed partner who has not heard me snore at all over this period!
2. I used to be sleepy during the day specially during idle periods, now I am wide awake.
3. My blood pressure has maintained to acceptable levels ( med support too included).
4. Weight I lost 8 pounds since then.
5. blood sugars are now in the mid normal from a high normal values.

So it is working for me without going to uvulectomy. I feel refreshed when I wake up, not tired. My blood pressure, sugar,are normal and the risk for cardiac disease and stroke for me has been minimized. of course food and medication plus exercise are the adjunct to the above.

I stood at 163 cm and weighed 85kgs, snore almost every night. Wife was beginning to complain and gets irritated. I decided to eat healthier food and run and workout 3 times a week. After six months I was down to 72 kgs, the snoring is gone. Would snore once in a while if I go on a drinking binge specially if I drink beer.

nakakatulong din ung pag practice ng pag lalagay ng dila sa hard palate banda sa likod nung mga ngipin sa harapan sa taas. nakakalessen mag snore un pag nasanay dila mo dun nakaposisyon lalo na pag naka tagilid natutulog.

I just experienced snoring. Sometimes waking me up
It is the first time my family heared ne snorning. I think it is beacause of my abrupt increase in weight.
