Teenagers with severe asthma more likely to suffer from insomnia

Previous studies have found a link between insomnia and asthma.

A new study has now found that adolescents with severe asthma are far more likely to suffer from insomnia symptoms compared to teens who suffer from milder forms of asthma or teenagers without asthma.

Researchers in Denver collected data from an online survey involving 298 individuals aged between 12 and 17.

44% of teenagers with severe asthma reported not getting enough sleep during the week, compared to 31% of teenagers without asthma.

Furthermore, those with severe asthma were more likely to have poor sleep hygiene and were twice as likely to report clinically significant insomnia compared to those with mild or no asthma.

It's important, therefore, to observe sleep closely in teenagers with asthma since interventions such as cognitive behavioral therapy can significantly improve sleep.
