Ask a doc: ‘When is snoring a sign of a more serious problem?’

An estimated 45% of adults snore occasionally, while a quarter of adults do so regularly, according to Johns Hopkins.

This common issue can affect sleep quality and lead to frequent sleep disruptions — but in some cases, it can be a sign of a serious health issue.

Fox News Digital spoke with Dr. Shelby Harris, a New York-based clinical psychologist and director of sleep health at Sleepopolis, who shared what to know about the topic.

The doctor also advised against “home remedies,” such as mouth taping, which can further restrict airflow and lead to a greater risk of serious health complications.
