Insufficient Sleep May Cause More Asthma Attacks in Adults

A new article, published in Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, says that insufficient sleep and sometimes excessive sleep may have a negative impact on adults with asthma, namely cause asthma more attacks.Insufficient Sleep May Cause More Asthma Attacks in Adults

In the study, described in the article, 1,389 adults whose age was above 20 years took part and said that they had asthma. Of all the participants, 25.9% slept 5 hours or less, 65.9% slept 6–8 hours, and 8.2% slept 9 and more hours.

People who slept less were more likely to have an asthma attack, dry cough, and an overnight hospitalization during the past year compared to those who had normal. At the same time, people who didn’t sleep enough had worse quality of life.

Allergist Gailen D. Marshall, MD, PhD, ACAAI member and Editor-in-Chief of Annals comments: “This study adds solid evidence to the practice of asthma patients discussing sleep issues with their allergist to help determine if they need to change their asthma plan to achieve adequate sleep as a component of overall good asthma management. It also warns that consequences can be expected when sleep patterns are chronically inadequate.”
