A friend, who is a sleep apnoea specialist, said the most effective treatment was to lose 5-10kg of weight. That takes some weight of the lower jaw, so it doesn't hang so low when sleeping -> less loud noises/shitty partners/shorter lifespan.
I used to snore. I lost 5kg in weight, drank a bit less alcohol, and my snoring disappeared, except when really tired.
I was part of the biggest demographic of snorers. Yes, there are those that need better masks, but really, most are too fat or drink too much.
Yes, I applaud a better mask, it is needed. But really, most need a simpler fix, They are too fat.
Yes, you fix the fatty snorer with a gizmo, but there is the increased risk of diabetes, heart attacks, osteoarthritis, etc etc etc, which are not addressed. Focus on what is the real problem, not fixing a small part of the problem.
