For a study, researchers sought to find a link between sleep disturbances and allergy-related outcomes in adults. Using the 2005–2006 NHANES database, they created logistic regression models to investigate the links between sleep problems and allergy-related outcomes in adult participants. sIgE levels, asthma, hay fever, sneezing, wheezing, and eczema were all allergy-related outcomes. Sleep latency, sleep length, sleep issues, OSA symptoms, and daytime sleepiness were all sleep disorders. For comparisons between groups, a t-test was utilized. Compared to non-OSA symptoms individuals, those with OSA symptoms had 2.72 times the chance of getting hay fever and 1.54 times the chance of getting eczema. When compared to participants who got enough sleep (7–8 h/night), those who had insufficient sleep (6 h/night) had a 1.27 higher chance of acquiring allergic sensitization. Sleep issues (OR: 1.706; 95% CI 1.386, 2.099), OSA symptoms (OR: 1.297; 95% CI 1.049, 1.605), and daytime drowsiness were all linked to sneezing (OR: 1.569; 95% CI 1.205, 2.04). The data pointed to a link between allergy-related outcomes and sleep disturbances. In particular, OSA symptoms, daytime tiredness, and sleep disorders were significantly linked to allergy diseases.
