Is snoring considered a form of sleep apnea?

Yes, snoring is a result of blocked airway also known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea or OSA. The condition is more common among men than women, and it becomes more likely as you get older. But it’s not a normal part of aging. The most common cause of “snoring” is being overweight, which also means a common treatment is to lose weight, although your physician will have to do a series of tests including a sleep study to diagnose the root causes.
