Treatment or management of your sleep disorder may include:

Weight loss can be helpful for some patients.
Avoiding certain sleeping positions such as sleeping on one's back can be helpful for some patients.
Surgery on the nose and/or throat can alleviate sleep apnea in some patients. Such surgeries are: LAUP, UUUP, Somnoplasty, Septoplasty, Mandibular advancement, and removing the tonsils.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP):
This is a non-surgical mode of treatment that is effective in most patients. A nasal mask is worn during sleep. Positive pressure is delivered through this mast to prevent collapsing/obstructing of the airway during sleep.
