Snoring In Children Can Be A Symptom Of A Serious Health Condition
Snoring in children can be a symptom of a serious health condition. Many of them have obstructive sleep apnea, which prevents the correct airflow to the lungs. This can be caused by enlarged adenoids and tonsils. It is also related to restless sleeping, sleepwalking and even wetting the bed after not wetting it for months. More details here.
Negative Effects Of Sleep Apnea And How To Deal With Them
There are times in which people sleep 8 hours, but they feel exhausted the day after and fatigued at work. The reason might be sleep apnea, which interrupts the sleep and prevents the body from entering deep sleep. The solution might be sleeping on your side or having the tonsils removed. More here.
Long Naps Can Be A Sign Of Sugar Problems And Diabetes
A nap in the afternoon can restore the body for the evening’s activities. The ideal is 20 minutes. However if the nap takes more than an hour each day, it might be a sign of diabetes. It also can increase the risk of heart attacks, cardiovascular problems or stroke. More details here.

Sleep apnea occurs when the air passage in the body is interrupted when sleeping, resulting in a loud snoring and in breathing interruptions which can last from ten seconds to one minute.
