Multiple options: Treatment for sleep apnea can depend on the severity. The best long term treatment is weight loss if you carry too much weight. For mild to moderate sleep apnea a dental appliance can help with apnea and snoring. Surgical options include tissue reduction surgery (uvulopalatopharyngioplasty), jaw surgery and the newest option is a pacemaker device that opens the airway during snoring. No meds help.

Airway vibrations: Snoring is caused by vibrations of the upper airway tissues in the back of the nose and throat. Simple snoring occurs in absence of sleep apnea. Screening for sleep apnea is important. Enlarged adenoid/tonsils and septal deviation are other causes. Treating sleep apnea can improve snoring. Alcohol and sedative medications can worsen. Treatment includes nasal steroids, dental appliances and surgery

Wonderful if true: This would be a wonderful thing if this was possible. Diabetes is a dysregulation of insulin and blood sugar. Type one diabetes often results from decreased production of insulin from the pancreas. Type two diabetes results from the end organs, mostly muscle, not using insulin efficiently. Occasionally in type one diabetes a pancreas transplant can resolve the problem. no permanent fix yet.
