Hello,

Large adenoids and tonsils are the usual cause of a child's snoring. Because you mention disturbance of sleep and breathlessness, obstructive sleep apnea, which is another cause of snoring, should be considered. Signs of this disorder include:
- Breath pauses while sleeping(10-15seconds at a time)
- Restless sleeper, tossing and turning in bed
- Awakes in morning tired
-Remains fatigued during the day
- Frequently occurs with obesity and high blood pressure

I suggest that she be evaluated by a sleep medicine physician as well as an ENT doctor both of whom see patients in a children's hospital.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Arnold Zedd
