Two that I'm aware of.

If you have sleep apnea, you can get an oxygen tank to keep your airways open. A friend has that.

For someone like me, I stop snoring when I get under 220 lbs. As I'm at 235 lbs right now, I'm a snorer. I am down 5 lbs so I'm working on it.

My husband has always snored.  Finally about two years ago he relented and got tested for sleep apnea.  Of course he has it really bad,  during the test in one hour he stopped breathing 63 times!!

It took him awhile to get used to his CPAP machine but he loves it now!  He said he had forgotten what it was like to sleep an entire night,  and to have dreams!!

Tina, how are you coping with his snoring?
Healthwise it is just as bad for the partner as for
the person with the snoring problem. The partner also
don't get proper sleep.

I have mild sleep apnee and is on Cpap therapy.
(Mask/cpap machine/humidifier) It is not everyone that snores that suffers from sleep apnea AND it is not everyone that does NOT snore don't suffer from sleep apnea. Everybody should go for a sleep study - Once you are used to Cpap therapy it is very easy BUT join the CpapTalk.com Forum - I could'nt succeed without them.
(www.cpaptalk.com) Cpap (continious positive airway pressure) is the only solution for snoring - it will not cure your sleep apnea/snoring - so you are on cpap for the rest of your life.
