Dear Kelly
Snoring is caused by a lax soft palate that vibrates when you breathe through your mouth when you sleep. It is often found in people with allergies (blocked nose or narrowed airways) or overweight people as the soft tissue closes the airways when you are relaxed.
Self management includes keeping your weight normal, using nasal strips or anti allergic medication, sleeping on your side with a special pillow for snorers to keep the neck in a good position ( I think GAME still keeps these pillows). Medical treatment would include surgery, using a Continuous Positive airway pressure machine, or a special dental mouth piece.
