Does Being Overweight or Obese Cause Snoring?

Gaining weight and being obese can increase the chances of snoring as fat gathers around the throat and frequently women who have never snored before will do so during pregnancy, particularly in the later stages. When you are reclining the tongue can block the throat passage too and any tension in those muscles around the jaw can cause restrictions to the air passages.

Being overweight can also cause snoring because the excess abdominal fat and soft tissue elevates the diaphragm when one is lying on their back and face up which puts excess pressure on the soft tissue of the airways.
