I've checked through older comments...no one has mentioned STARTING to snore...lots of people commenting about reducing or removing snoring all together, but no mention of beginning to snore brought about by???.I???m not sure..I don???t eat gluten nor wheat???

I???m honestly a little baffled???I???m looking environmental now, maybe the room is quite dusty, I know my curtains could use a soak, but it seems like I???m reaching.

Does anyone know anything that might cause one to begin snoring with what I???m being told sounds like the same noises by both The Predator and something akin to the African click languages???

Truth.

Best to test, since everyone reacts a bit differently to supplementation. Www.vitamindcouncil.org has more info & a link to a home test kit for $70.

CD - No, nothing like that...though my sleeping position might change drastically when my partner pushes me out into the hallway or worse yet, the balcony, and we don't have a balcony and live on the 4th floor. Truth

I've never actually had it checked, I take 5000IU's daily because I live in a place with seasons, though after reading the article, I might up it to the 10,000IU's, which, seems like so much, it kind of worries me for some reason, probably because I don't know enough about D3, but per your advice I upped my magnesium at night and take 450mg, which I think has helped me to sleep better, so thank you SO much for that and everything you do to keep us informed, I respect you greatly! Truth.

Dairy is a HUGE no no for me as is gluten, the combo of the two give me a food baby and I look 3 months pregnant...but it's possible I've been eating something I'm not thinking of, though I'm a creature of habit, I'll have to food journal a couple weeks and test it out!

I hate to be that guy, but, no to all of these and I'm at my lowest weight so far…over 70 lbs. lost and still going, seriously didn't know I needed to lose all that, it’s also why I’m a little surprised that I’ve started snoring...I don’t know VB...Maybe an allergy, but for the life of me I don’t think I’d ever find out what it is! This is really bugging me…

Have you checked your Vitamin D level lately? This doc found that D levels can affect sleep disorders. Read this:

A change in body weight--up OR down, can exacerbate underlying sleep apnea. You don't have to be male or obese to have sleep apnea, you don't even need to snore. Apnea can be caused be structural anatomy (narrowed airways you're born with), gastroesophageal reflux, and central nervous system dysfunction. On a sleep apnea forum I participate in there are many thin people with apnea. There are also some who find weightloss requires them to use MORE CPAP pressure, not less.

Snoring can also be caused by upper airway resistance--against a structural anatomy issue.

So if the snoring persists, the ONLY way to know what's going on is a sleep test. Time to see your doctor.

Have you recently started to exercise? I know when I first started a vigorous exercise routine, I started to snore. My throat wasn't used to breathing so heavily and deeply and would become very dry. When I'd fall asleep, my dry throat made me snore.

Eventually, I got used to it and no longer snore. It only lasted about a week. Just a thought. . .

Have you reintroduced anything? I have found that a bit of milk will cause me to snore.

Low potassium is sometimes a source of snoring. Have you recently changed foods that could be affecting your sodium-potassium balance?

I love your comments. Your tags are a bit Colbert-like but funny!

People who start snoring are usually:

  1. Overweight OR

  2. Have a sinus problem OR

  3. Have allergies due to inflammation OR

  4. Have a wide arrange of inflammatory issues (diabetes, etc.)

I am not scaring you - maybe you put on weight during the holidays? Have you been munching on Steve Colbert's ice cream recently?

Don't worry - snoring IS reversible, you just need to take care of the underlying problem.

Love and peace to you!
