This one in mice suggests that a daily feeding-fasting rhythm is a key input to liver and muscle clocks that enables synergy between the two tissues for control of glucose metabolism at the systemic level. Image
- Physiology is regulated by interconnected cell and tissue circadian clocks.
- Disruption of the rhythms generated by the concerted activity of these clocks is associated with metabolic disease.

Daytime napping for >30 minutes increases the risk of atrial fibrillation
1. Some nap during daytime as a habit, whereas a few try to catch up on lost sleep at nights with some daytime napping.
However, there is some bad news for those napping >30 minutes during daytime.
2. In a recent study, compared to short daytime nappers(<30 min), those who snoozed for 30 minutes or more per day had a nearly doubled risk of developing atrial fibrillation (AF).
Meanwhile, compared with short nappers; risk was not elevated in those who avoided #napping.
3. Further analysis was done based on the nap duration.
Compared with those who napped for more than 30 minutes per day, those who napped for less than 15 min had a 42% lower risk of developing atrial fibrillation; while those who napped for 15 to 30 min had a 56% reduced risk.

Most melatonin gummies in US are inaccurately labelled

1. Melatonin gummies are routinely given to children for sleep, stress and relaxation.
Melatonin is not approved by FDA for use in children, and hence #melatonin gummies are bought OTC or online.
#MedTwitter #sleep
2. Pediatric melatonin ingestions in US increased 530% from 2012 to 2021 and were associated with 27 795 emergency department and clinic visits, 4097 hospitalizations, 287 intensive care unit admissions, and 2 deaths.
3. In a recent study, 25 melatonin gummy brands were analyzed. Twenty-two of 25 products (88%) were inaccurately labeled, and only 3 products (12%) contained a quantity of melatonin that was within ±10% of the declared quantity.…

The findings of this one suggest that acute evening HIIT may partially reduce the detrimental effects of partial sleep restriction on long-term declarative memory. Image
- Some studies have shown that short sleep duration (<7 hours per night) is associated with adverse health outcomes and impaired cognitive functioning including poor attention, decreased concentration and impaired memory.
- The objective of this study was to estimate the extent to which a remote, evening HIIT intervention performed in the evening prior to encoding (learning) would compensate for the negative effect of sleep restriction...

Lack of sleep as well as excess sleep are associated with increased risk of stroke

1. A recent research looked at the association between sleep disorders (in the previous month) and risk of stroke in 4496 people.…
#MedTwitter #neurotwitter #sleep #stroke
2. Short sleep (<5 hours), long sleep (>9 hours), impaired sleep quality, difficulty getting to sleep or maintaining sleep, unplanned napping, prolonged napping (>1 hour), snoring & breathing cessation (OSA) were all significantly associated with increased odds of acute stroke.
3. Short sleep (<5 h) was associated with a 3.1 times higher risk of stroke, and long sleep (>9 h) was associated with 2.7 times higher risk of stroke, as compared to those who slept 7 hours.
More the number of sleep disturbances, greater was the risk of stroke.

Contrary to other studies, in this Spanish population with high cardiovascular risk, higher cardiovascular health score using the American Heart Association's Life’s Simple 7 metrics was associated with a decreased risk of incident atrial fibrillation in lean individuals only.
- The American Heart Association’s Life’s Simple 7 health score consists of 7 modifiable metrics: physical activity, diet, smoking status, BMI, systolic blood pressure, fasting plasma glucose, and cholesterol.
Note that the LS7 has been recently updated and includes sleep as well:…

Repeated short-duration numbness of one side of body: prompt management can prevent a disabling disease

1. 51-year old Mr K presented with three episodes of numbness of left side of face, arm and leg in the past 20 days. Each episode lasted only 10 minutes.
2. Mr K also had feelings of tingling sensation in the affected areas. He had no weakness and could move his left arm & leg normally during those episodes. His speech also remained normal.
After 10 min, he used to have complete recovery from numbness and tingling.
3. Mr K was a healthy person, with normal weight and BMI. He had no known medical illness. However, he consulted me for expert opinion.
The history was very typical of a neurological problem. Clinical examination was normal. I asked for appropriate investigations.

Lack of sleep (<5 h) and excessive sleep (>9 h), both increase the risk of heart attack
1. Insomnia (lack of sleep) is not considered a traditional risk factor for heart attack.
A recent study examined the association between sleep duration and risk of heart attacks.
2. People with insomnia had 69% higher risk of myocardial infarction (MI, heart attack).
The risk of MI was higher among those who slept <5 hours or <6 hours as compared to those who slept 7-8 hours/night.…
3. Excessive #sleep also increased the risk of #heartattack.
People who slept 9 hours or more had a higher risk of heart attack as compared to those who slept 6-8 hours per night.
Sleeping >9 hours and sleeping <5 hours , both increased the risk of heart attack.

Two ketogenic dieticians, @KaniaZupec
and @KetoPotterRDN were both recently interviewed on BipolarCast podcast by @IainCampbellPhD and Matt Baszucki. And I think you will be interested to hear what they had to say. 🧵(1/7)
@KaniaZupec @KetoPotterRDN @IainCampbellPhD Beth and Denise, ketogenic dieticians with experience in treating pediatric epilepsy populations, have long observed the significant improvement of other medical issues alongside epilepsy, such as cognitive delays, physical mobility issues, autism, and depression. (2/7)
@KaniaZupec @KetoPotterRDN @IainCampbellPhD They have seen that, even when epilepsy remains the same, other symptoms may improve with a #ketogenic diet. (3/7)

In this one, sedentary older adults residing in the United States with higher visceral adipose tissue and greater total sleep time were more likely to have brains that were physiologically older than would have been expected based upon chronological age alone.
- To provide a more comprehensive analysis of age-related changes to brain structure, new tools that leverage the capacity of machine learning algorithms have emerged.
- Commonly considered a way to determine the physiological age of the brain, these tools utilize regional brain measures from MRI acquired from large samples who range widely in age to calculate a biological brain age.

"Burning the midnight oil" the night before exams results in poorer grades
1. It is common to see students studying late nights especially closer to #examinations. But does studying extra at the cost of missing #sleep result in better academic performance?
2. A survey was conducted among student pharmacists to correlate sleep duration and course grades. About 300 students of pharmacy (first to third years) were included in the survey.
3. More than half of student pharmacists obtained less than 7 hours of sleep at night during a typical school week (55%) and a large majority on the night prior to an examination (82%).
