Background: to evaluate the rate of nocturnal enuresis (Ne), body weight and obstructive sleep apnea in children 5 to 10 years of age in South Italy and the possible association among these disorders. Methods: We have administered 1100 validated questionnaires, in italian language, to parents and we have analyzed data with a logistic regression. Results: Forty-two percent of children had a BMI≥85th (group 1) vs 58.0% normal weight children at the same age (group 2). there is a higher number of overweight males compared to females without statistically differences. in group 1 there was a higher number of children with Ne and obstructive sleep disorders and some children present with the association among these three disorders. Conclusions: there are no statistically differences between two study groups for the association body weight-Ne, body weight-Ne-obstructive sleep disorders. © 2016 Edizioni Minerva Medica

Abstract

Background: to evaluate the rate of nocturnal enuresis (Ne), body weight and obstructive sleep apnea in children 5 to 10 years of age in South Italy and the possible association among these disorders. Methods: We have administered 1100 validated questionnaires, in italian language, to parents and we have analyzed data with a logistic regression. Results: Forty-two percent of children had a BMI≥85th (group 1) vs 58.0% normal weight children at the same age (group 2). there is a higher number of overweight males compared to females without statistically differences. in group 1 there was a higher number of children with Ne and obstructive sleep disorders and some children present with the association among these three disorders. Conclusions: there are no statistically differences between two study groups for the association body weight-Ne, body weight-Ne-obstructive sleep disorders. © 2016 Edizioni Minerva Medica
