Bed-wetting linked to snoring in children

Children who snore are about four times more likely to we the bed, than those who don't. Bedwetting and snoring have been linked in both adults and children. To clarify the relationship between snoring and bedwetting, researchers from the Larissa University Hospital, Greece, evaluated 1,821 children between the ages of 5 to 14 years old, 2% of whom had a history of bedwetting. Those who snored more than three times a week, 7% of the total, were classified as habitual snorers. Among the habitual snorers, it was found that 7% wet the bed compared with 2% of the children who did not snore, making children who snored 4 times more likely to wet the bed. However, the researchers found that less than one quarter of the children who wet the bed also snored, which suggests it is unlikely that there is a common underlying cause for both. There is evidence that people who snore produce more urine at night, while trying to breathe through obstructed airways may cause abdominal pressure that could also contribute to incontinence. Based on the above findings, the researchers recommend that paediatricians should find from parents of their young patients who snore about bedwetting, and vice versa.
