Loud snoring: Hello, this sounds like your father needs a sleep study. The best way to diagnose the exact cause would be to have him see his doctor for a scheduled work up. Personally, my father died as a result of untreated sleep apnea. I often times wonder if i could have been more pressing for him to seek treatment. Show him this message and ask him to have the work up for you and his loved ones. ; stop cigs.
