Job: Medicinae Doctor of
King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital
** This is just a portion of the interview with Dr. Tidaluck.
Q : From our research, we see that most of the people think that snoring is not dangerous to their life. What do you think, doctor?
A : Snoring has many levels. In the dangerous level, it can make people die, but in the other level that is not dangerous, it is a start of the chance that the disease can occur in the future.
Q : Why do the children like us snore?
A : The children snore because they are tired from playing or doing too many activities each day. It may be more than the normal rate of activities. The children's snore is not dangerous because it does not happen as often.
Q: How can we keep it from happening?
A:The best thing is to exercise and to control your weight because being overweight is a condition that can cause snoring and can cause another diseases too.
Q : If we have to sleep in the same room with the snorer, what will we do?
A : Some couples cannot accept that their spouse snores, but after that they will be used to that noise. Many people have that problem, and when the children snore and hear that snoring, they can't sleep. The doctor recommends ear plugs that the swimmers use. It is very good to block out the noise, but be careful, since you will not hear the alarm clock.
