Abstract
Allergic rhinitis (AR) is a common chronic disease that negatively affects physical and mental health. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of allergic rhinitis on sleep, fatigue, and depressive symptoms among Korean female nurses. This was a cross-sectional study conducted using data from the Korea Nurses' Health Study (KNHS), and a total of 8645 female nurses was selected for the final analysis. The demographic characteristics, Body Mass Index, alcohol consumption, shift work, comorbidities (atopic dermatitis and asthma), self-rated health, sleep disturbance (Jenkins Sleep Questionnaire), fatigue (Chalder Fatigue Scale), and depressive symptoms (Perceived Health Questionnaire-9) were collected. The data were analyzed using chi-square tests, t-tests, and hierarchical multiple regression analyses. Participants with allergic rhinitis had significantly greater sleep disturbance, fatigue, and depressive symptoms than those without allergic rhinitis, and allergic rhinitis was a significant factor influencing sleep disturbance and fatigue among the participants after controlling for confounding variables. Therefore, it is imperative to develop effective interventions to manage allergic rhinitis symptoms and improve sleep and fatigue in affected nurses.</p>
