A study by Lisa J. Meltzer, PhD, observed links between asthma and sleep, reports Helio.

Adolescents with severe asthma reported insufficient sleep, poor sleep hygiene, and clinically significant insomnia, according to a recent study.

“This exploratory study extends previous reports that many adolescents obtain insufficient sleep to adolescents with asthma, which demonstrated that more adolescents with asthma reported insufficient sleep than adolescents without asthma,” the researchers wrote.
