Dr. Khurram is an expert in Dubai for treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring. The signs and symptoms of central and obstructive sleep apneas overlap, sometimes making it difficult to determine which type you have. The most common signs and symptoms of obstructive and central sleep apneas include:

  • Loud snoring
  • Episodes in which you stop breathing during sleep — which would be reported by another person
  • Gasping for air during sleep
  • Awakening with a dry mouth
  • Morning headache
  • Difficulty staying asleep (insomnia)
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness (hypersomnia)
  • Difficulty paying attention while awake
  • Irritability

Being an expert in anti-snoring and sleep apnea treatment, Dr. Khurram is able to treat these cases using a simple and easy to wear oral device called a mandibular advancement appliance. Helping patients achieve a deeper, more satisfying night’s sleep, the anti-snoring device is flexible, thin and comfortable, and it exhibits documented clinical success in mitigating or preventing the disruptive, unhealthy effects of snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea. The appliance is designed to mildly shift the lower jaw forward in a therapeutic position while patients are asleep, which activates the airway muscles and ligaments to stop the airway from collapsing.

In addition to an anti-snoring device, Dr. Khurram recommends the following bedtime remedies to help you reduce snoring

Change your sleeping position. Elevating your head four inches may ease breathing and encourage your tongue and jaw to move forward.

Sleep on your side instead of your back.

Clear nasal passages. If you often have a stuffy nose, rinse your sinuses with saline before bed. This can often happen in a climate like we have here in Dubai. You can use a neti pot, nasal decongestant, or nasal strips can also help you breathe more easily while sleeping. If you have mild/moderate allergies, you reduce dust and pet dander in your room or try using a doctor prescribed allergy medication.

Keep bedroom air moist. Dry air can irritate membranes in the nose and throat, so if swollen nasal tissues are the problem, a humidifier may help. Dubai’s hot and dry climate often exacerbates these types of problems.


Lifestyle changes to help you stop snoring

Lose weight. Losing even a little bit of weight can greatly reduce fatty tissue in the back of the throat and decrease, or sometimes even stop snoring!

Quit smoking. If you are a smoker, your chances of snoring are greatly increased. Smoking of any type, irritates the membranes in the nose and throat which can block the airways and cause you to snore. While quitting is easier said than done, it can bring quick snoring relief. Being an expert in snoring treatment,

Avoid alcohol, sleeping pills, and sedatives because they relax the muscles in the throat and interfere with breathing. Also talk to your doctor about any prescription medications you’re taking, as some encourage a deeper level of sleep which can make snoring worse.

Be careful what you eat before bed. Research shows that eating large meals or consuming certain foods such as dairy or soy milk right before bedtime can make snoring worse.

Exercise in general can reduce snoring, even if it doesn’t lead to weight loss. That’s because when you tone various muscles in your body, such as your arms, legs, and abs, this leads to toning the muscles in your throat, which in turn can lead to less snoring. There are also specific exercises you can do to strengthen the muscles in your throat.

If you want to stop snoring and start living again, ask Dr. Khurram if an anti-snoring device will work for you!
