  • Has he had a sleep study? The problem may not be obstructive, but central sleep apnea, or it could be that he has allergies or hypotonia...lots of things, really. What has the ENT said about it?

  • His snoring must not have been tonsil related. Snoring can originate anywhere there's breathing. I agree with pp that a sleep study is really the only way to get to the source.

  • hmm.. I hear of so many sleep studies being done nowadays. I wonder about this with my niece as she snores incredibly loud at age ten and has for as long as I can remember..
