Is snoring a bad sign?


| 2 Comments
Doctors are now saying that snoring while you sleep could be a sign for other health problems such as hyperactivity, inattention and depression. CNN observed 249 children in the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and concluded that kids between the ages of 2 and 3 who snore had more behavioral problems than children who do not snore. 

Children that snore regularly for months is not normal. CNN recommends that parents of snoring children should take their kids to see a doctor to see if the children are experiencing any other health issues. Snoring in children can also be a sign of certain kids of breathing problems which can be easily treated if detected.

That is so interesting that it is abnormal for children to snore. Just the thought that it is abnormal for youth, makes me wonder if snoring adults also have similar health problems because of their sleeping habits. What makes it so different for a child rather than an adult? After reading this post I would wonder what exactly causes the health problems from snoring? How exactly does snoring effect a child's heath. It is understandable if they are having breathing issue because that would make sense that they are having trouble breathe. This is a great topic to go into further on the reasoning behind the children's health problems.

..OH, I snoring when I was in primary school...Always happened when I felt so tired.."Snoring during sleep may be a sign, or first alarm, of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)."( cited from Wikipedia).. After reading your blog, I've realized that that it is abnormal for children to snore...And I also found some other articles about the children's snoring problem. "Children who persistently snore during their early childhood may be more likely to have behavioral problems such as aggression and hyperactivity, according to a new study." It also says that a person snores when they are having difficulty breathing during sleep; this difficulty could be the result of anything from a cold or allergies to enlarged adenoid glands; in each case, snoring causes problems by disrupting sleep, restricting oxygen and requiring more effort to breathe.
