Snoring Common Among Young Women With Allergies

soirce : http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/

Young women with atopy (allergies to pollen, food, dander venoms, etc) are more likely to snore, according to researchers from the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (Cincinnati, OH) and the University of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, OH).

After completing a questionnaire about snoring frequency and smoking status and having a skin prick test to determine allergies to 15 aeroallergens, 515 women, with an average age of 29.8 years, were compared to identify snoring risk factors.

Results show that 257 (49.9 percent) never snored, 176 (34.2 percent) snored at least 1 night a week, and 105 (20.4 percent) snored at least three times per week.

Patients in this group who smoked were almost twice as likely to snore regularly (34.0 percent vs 18.2 percent), and African-Americans were also more likely to smoke (29.1 percent vs 18.5 percent).
