Hey, Fatty tissue and poor muscle tone contribute to snoring. Sleeping flat on your back causes the flesh of your throat to relax and block the airway. Changing your sleep position can help.Loosing weight , daily exercise, avoiding alcohol ,smoking ,sleeping tab,maintaining airway clear can help him , He should maintain regular sleep pattern , if he's having sleep apnea , disturbed sleep , its better to consult physician.
