A recent study showed that a urine test for certain proteins can predict obstructive sleep apnea in pediatric patients. In this study, 60 children with documented obstructive sleep apnea had their urine proteins compared with 30 children with snoring only and another 30 normal controls. Four specific proteins, uromodulin, urocortin-3, orosomucoid-1, and kallikrein, were found to predict the […]
