Sleep apnea?: Hi. Heavy snoring may be a sign of sleep apnea. Ask the person who sleeps with the snorer if the snorer stops breathing frequently for long pauses (relatively speaking!). A sleep study to diagnose sleep apnea may be in order. If sleep apnea is present, the new auto-PAP devices are very helpful and good for health...and sleep! Good luck.

Sleep disorder: need to consider sleep apnea cause and C-PAP unit should help if so. Elongated uvula can be repaired, sinus issues addressed and tonsiillar tissue addressed if present
