Apart from blocked nose and sneezing, what will happen if the moderate hypertrophy of my inferior turbinates is left untreated?

In brief: Blocked nose

Enlarged turbinate reduces airflow but may also block sinus drainage making you more prone to get sinusitis.
If the nasal opening is less than 50% block, you may or may not need treatment if there are no other complications.
