Is your child performing poorly at school ?? If yes , please check if he or she is sleeping well because researchers have found that snoring can adversely affect children’s thinking abilities.
While periodic snoring is usual in children, persistent snoring can lead to a disorder called sleep apnea that affects the quality of sleep, which in turn, can be linked with concentration and learning difficulties, the findings suggest.
Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts.
The most common reason for snoring are enlarged tonsils or adenoids, that can often be cured or reduced with surgery, the researchers said.
