Obstructive sleep apnea for youngsters causes digestive problems.
A cascade of symptoms from sleep apnea might result in digestive problems including acid reflux. Unfortunately, it can also result in more severe issues like colon cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, and inflammatory bowel disease. It is also thought that sleep apnea and celiac disease are connected. Similar to the general population, polysomnography remains the gold standard for diagnosis. Because individuals with DS may be more susceptible to cardiovascular and neurocognitive sequelae, early diagnosis and treatment of OSA is becoming increasingly important.Author(s): Chunyan Li*
