    So sorry about that. it's could be hereditary however cutting down on your weight can be of great help. then also using a well elevated pillow, sleeping in a well ventilated room. wrong sleeping positions can also be corrected. do a lot of exercise too.

    Oh thank you Dr for your reply. Can increasing fruit intake also help?

    well increasing fruit intake won't stop snoring however it's a step in the right direction to losing weight more fruits and less carbohydrates and food which are hence converted to fat and stored in the body which can further aggravate snoring. I hope I answered your question.
