Yet good knowledge of your own condition and knowing your asthma action plan (what to do if you experience a deterioration) can make a big difference to maintaining your own health and catching any flare early, before it gets too severe."

Snoring is a common condition that affects around 50,000 in the UK. Whilst snoring is not usually very serious - although is a nuisance for your bed partner - snoring can be a consequence of underlying medical conditions. Whilst many of these conditions are not serious and are easy to treat, for some snoring can be a symptom and sign for obstructive sleep apnoea.
