13. What can be done about snoring?
If you are among approximately 40% of adults who snore, you can try these lifestyle changes, which may help you stop snoring.
- Change your sleep position.
- Lose weight. Weight loss helps some people but not everyone -- thin people snore, too.
- Limit alcohol intake and avoid taking sedative medications.
Use caution before you self-treat with over-the-counter sprays and pills until you talk with your doctor.
