cause of sleep deprivation is snoring
Snoring can be caused by a number of things. It could be as simple as the anatomy of your mouth and sinuses. It could also be from alcohol consumption, weight gain and sleep deprivation.
When we fall into a deep sleep, our throat muscles relax, which can partially block our airways. The more narrowed the airway, the more forceful the airflow becomes, and the louder the snoring.
Lots of people snore, so it’s easy to see why some people ignore it. The problem is, snoring isn’t always just snoring. It can be an indication that something more serious is happening, like sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder that obstructs your airways and involuntarily pauses your breathing for brief periods of time.
Everyone snores from time to time, but when it’s chronic, you should seek medical advice. Not only because it’s disruptive to your (and your family’s) sleep, it’s also a sign of a larger health issue.
