We are pleased that our article1 has interested Drs. Carratù and Tedeschi, and Professor Resta. In our study, we found that in women from the general population aged 20 to 70 years, several daytime symptoms of sleep-disordered breathing were associated with the presence of self-reported snoring regardless of the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI). Resta et al2 found that obese patients without sleep apnea experienced more daytime sleepiness than nonobese control subjects. However, nearly 50% of the obese subjects snored loudly.2 Our results showed that the snoring women were significantly more overweight than the nonsnoring women (body mass index [BMI], 26 ± 4 vs 28 ± 5 kg/m2, p < 0.0001), but in our calculations we adjusted for BMI. The AHI did not independently correlate to any daytime symptoms in our study. Some previous studies have reported hypersomnolence in snorers with an AHI < 5,3 and that there was no significant modification by AHI on the relation between snoring and sleepiness.4 The nature of this excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) in habitual snorers is not known. However, it has been shown in a small number of studies5,6 that the EDS can be reversed by treating the snoring even in nonapnoic subjects.
