Sleep problems in the healthy elderly were studied in 628 community-dwelling older adults.
Self-report of daytime sleepiness in this group was evaluated.
Self-reported snoring was significantly associated with reports of daytime sleepiness (p<0.001), and reported health showed significant associations with age group (p<0.001), reports of breathing problems (p<0.001), and reports of excessive daytime sleepiness (p<0.01).
The data strongly support the impact of sleep-related factors on self-perceptions of health in community-dwelling older adults.
Even as a subjective self-report measure, snoring readily predicts self-reported problems with daytime sleepiness.
