Asthma is one of the most common diseases
in children. But new research shows that a treatment for a sleep disorder could offer
them relief. I’m Miranda Savioli with your latest health news. A recent study looked at children with asthma
who had their tonsils and adenoids removed — a common treatment for sleep apnea, or
irregular breathing during sleep. In the year following the operation, those children had
30 percent fewer asthma attacks than in the year prior. There were also fewer asthma related
hospital visits. Talk to your doctor about emerging treatments
for your condition.
