Snoring is a disturbance to the person who snores and his whole family. The worst affected is the bed partner, if they don’t snore themselves. If your bed partner does not snore, you must be used to being prodded or nudged each night and that takes a toll on the health of both. The recent snoring research has given statistics that people who snore are categorized in the high risk list for diabetes, stress related disorders, strokes and hypertension. However, the worst part is that snorer’s kids start to snore from an early age. Yes, when you look at kids snoring, it is usually considered to be hereditary. So, if you snore, your kids have higher chances of snoring too.
A study done on snoring in kids, concluded that children who are allergic sensitized or suffer from Atopy tend to snore more than the usual kids. Most of the kids who suffered from allergic reactions or sensitization are more prone to snoring while snoring kids were also found to have at least one of the parents, who snored on a regular basis.
It was found that apart from occasional snoring, kids who had Atopy were snoring as much as 3 to 4 times a week which is nearly calculated as habitual snoring. The adverse effect of snoring in kids leads to sleep deprivation just like it happens with adults. The child shows behavioural problems, low concentration and poor alertness, metabolic problems which are often labelled as ADHD leading to further complications. Sleep dysfunction hits all ages so it is best to screen your child for any sleep related breathing problems.
Snoring has indirect consequence which makes it a real health issue at any age. It is caused by any inflammation or narrowing in the respiratory system especially in the trachea, air passages or blockages in the nasal passage. Most health care professional consider snoring as a warning signal by the body of impending diseases or health concerns.

But in children, snoring causes are limited to stress, exertion, Atopy, general allergies and last but not the least, obesity.
