  • Increased plasma IL-6, IL-8, TNF-alpha, and G-CSF in Japanese narcolepsy.

    29 Jun 2014 | 4:00 pm
    Authors: Tanaka S, Honda M, Toyoda H, Kodama T Abstract Narcolepsy is a chronic hypersomnia involving excessive daytime sleepiness and cataplexy. Some susceptibility genes and environmental factors suggest that post-infectious immunological alterations underlie its pathophysiology. To investigate the immunological alterations in narcolepsy patients, we examined cytokines. Nine healthy controls and twenty-one narcolepsy patients with cataplexy were studied. All subjects were positive for the HLA-DRB1∗1501-DQB1∗0602 allele. Age-, sex-, and body mass index -matched healthy controls were…
  • Is HCRTR2 a Genetic Risk Factor for Alzheimer's Disease?

    28 Jun 2014 | 8:17 am
    Conclusion: Our data support the hypothesis that the HCRTR2 gene is likely to be a risk factor for AD. The increased risk inferred is quite small, but in the context of a multi-factorial disease, the presence of this polymorphism may significantly contribute to influencing the susceptibility for AD by interacting with other unknown genetic or environmental factors in sleep regulation. © 2014 S.

Here we review the evidence pertaining to the use of methylphenidate, dexamphetamine and related amphetamine salts, the prodrug lisdexamfetamine and modafinil for the management of comorbid ADHD and non-ADHD indications. There is a growing consensus that stimulant medications are helpful at improving the emotional dysregulation and lability, and oppositional and conduct symptoms that are often associated with ADHD. There is some evidence that psychostimulants may improve outcomes in those…

  • A Scary-Sounding Sleep Disorder: Exploding Head Syndrome

    Dr. Michael Breus
    26 Jun 2014 | 4:32 pm
    Exploding head syndrome may sound like something out of a science fiction movie—but in fact it’s a very real sleep disorder. People with this sleep phenomenon are prone to experiencing loud and sudden noises as they transition in and out of sleep.  Researchers at Washington State University recently published a review of existing literature on exploding head syndrome, a first step toward raising awareness and better understanding this little-known sleep phenomenon. Their analysis of the syndrome reveals a range of symptoms reported by patients: Noises are loud and jarring, resembling the…
  • Chronic Poor Sleep May Cause Lasting Brain Damage

    Dr. Michael Breus
    30 May 2014 | 3:08 pm
        Do without sleep now, and make up for it later. It’s a pretty common sleep strategy for adults with busy lives and demanding schedules that crowd out sufficient time for sleep on a daily basis. We’ve seen evidence in recent years that this strategy— of running up a sleep deficit and attempting to catch up on sleep at a later point—meets with limited success. In recent years, research has indicated that the effects of insufficient sleep can’t be fully remedied by recovery sleep. And for many people who work especially long hours or irregular and nighttime hours in shift work,…

  • When nightmares cause insomnia and depression

    Martin Reed
    18 Jul 2014 | 6:45 am
    I’ve written about the link between insomnia and depression a number of times. New research has now found then when insomnia is combined with nightmares, symptoms of depression can become even worse. Researchers in Japan found that 71% of study participants with insomnia experienced nightmares 1 or more times per week compared to 29% of healthy sleepers. They also found that individually, insomnia and nightmares were both linked to more severe symptoms of depression. Those who suffered from insomnia and nightmares at the same time experienced even more severe symptoms of depression.
  • Over the counter sleeping pills come with risks, too

    16 Jul 2014 | 5:09 pm
    More than 2 million Americans are regularly taking over the counter sleeping pills to help them sleep. This trend has many doctors concerned. According to one professor at the University of Washington, Seattle, individuals who are self-treating their insomnia with over the counter sleeping pills could be putting themselves at risk for serious health consequences. It’s important for all insomnia sufferers to seek medical advice since insomnia could be a symptom of a serious underlying medical condition. Furthermore, not seeking medical advice can lead to chronic, long-term use of over…
  • Teenagers with severe asthma more likely to suffer from insomnia

    Previous studies have found a link between insomnia and asthma. A new study has now found that adolescents with severe asthma are far more likely to suffer from insomnia symptoms compared to teens who suffer from milder forms of asthma or teenagers without asthma. Researchers in Denver collected data from an online survey involving 298 individuals aged between 12 and 17. 44% of teenagers with severe asthma reported not getting enough sleep during the week, compared to 31% of teenagers without asthma. Furthermore, those with severe asthma were more likely to have poor sleep hygiene and were…
  • How to cure postnatal insomnia without sleeping pills

    Martin Reed
    7 Jul 2014 | 2:33 pm
    Unfortunately, sleep deprivation and insomnia is seen as a natural part of early motherhood. Often this is down to a crying baby disrupting sleep – but what rarely gets talked about is postnatal insomnia. Postnatal insomnia is the term given to new parents (typically mothers) who find sleep difficult even when their baby is sleeping soundly. This is often due to the stresses and anxieties of being a new mother and the corresponding behaviors such as being unable to relax due to excessive ‘baby listening’ and the subsequent light sleep that is easily disturbed. Hormonal…

    I’ve written before that strokes are one of the most serious consequences of chronic insomnia. Another study has now confirmed this link. Researchers in Taiwan reviewed the health records from the national population and compared stroke outcomes over a 4-year followup in over 21,000 patients with insomnia and over 64,000 without insomnia. After adjusting for other factors, the study found that those with insomnia were 54% more likely to suffer from a stroke. Although researchers found the risk of stroke to increase as people got older, they also found that the link between insomnia and…

    Microwave ovens are common kitchen appliances that can now be found in almost every household across the globe. These ovens make use of a process called dielectric heating where the food particles are exposed to electromagnetic radiations in the microwave spectrum in order to build up the thermal energy. Understanding how microwaves work can help you judge better when buying the kitchen appliance for yourself from the market. In order to get safely heated food at all times, it is important to avoid cheap and local brands when it comes to choosing the right microwave. You can also make use of…

  • Increasing our time asleep potentially reduces food cravings

    Rosie Gollancz
    16 Jul 2014 | 8:37 am
    Photo credit: TownePost Network via flickr Studies have shown a link between reduced sleep and weight gain. Most of us will recognise that ‘need’ for carbs and sugar to get us though the day after a poor night’s sleep. There’s on-going research to find out which mechanisms in the brain might be responsible for that but a recent study has tried to address the question from the opposite perspective: does increasing our time asleep reduce our desire for certain foods? The small pilot study, published in the journal Appetite, recruited ten overweight males (who habitually slept less than…
  • Sleep fact or fiction? Does a Full Moon affect how we sleep?

    Photo credit: DVIDSHUB There are legends in every part of the world about the power of a Full Moon and what it can do – everything from increasing fertility to causing insanity. But what about the effect it has on our sleep? Lots of people say that they experience problems sleeping at the time of a Full Moon so, as there’s one this weekend in the UK, we’ve put it to our sleep experts: does a Full Moon affect how we sleep? Over to Dr Simon Kyle for the answer … There might very well be something called ‘lunar insomnia’. Past research has suggested that the full moon could disrupt…
  • How can I stop waking up in the middle of the night

    Photo credit: Courtney via flickr George Clooney (allegedly) has trouble sleeping – he struggles to fall asleep and then wakes up repeatedly in the night. Unfortunately we only know this because it’s on the internet rather than actually talking to the man himself. Still, we know that George is not the only one. The night can seem a very long and lonely time when we’re struggling to stay asleep. So what can we do to stop waking up in the middle of the night? George has trouble falling asleep; once his head hits the pillow, with no distractions, the thoughts take over. More on the…

    Photo credit: owlpacino via flickr There’s still so much we have to learn about sleep, but we already know it’s vital to our well-being and does amazing things like reset our brain and protect us from physical and mental health issues. If you think about it, the signs are all there: we spend about a third of our lives doing it it is universal across all species, tightly regulated internally, and cannot be lost without serious harm, and it’s up there with oxygen in terms of the fundamentals we need to live (yep, it’s more important than food) Any one of those would be…
  • I can’t sleep. Should I stay in bed or get up?

    Jo White
    23 Jun 2014 | 4:16 am
    Photo credit: Kevin McGill via flickr This is one of the most popular questions posed to our sleep experts. We all know the dilemma: we’ve woken up in the middle of the night and then struggle to fall back to sleep. Should I stay in bed or get up? Sometimes it’s hard to even consider getting out of bed when we’re all snug under the duvet. It’s so much easier to think ‘If I stay here, I’ll drop off again’… and sometimes we do. But sometimes we don’t and we can find ourselves tossing and turning for hours. There are some approaches that suggest you just lie there until you…

  • Late nights and appetites: the sleep-obesity connection

    Jeff Mann
    13 Jul 2014 | 6:33 pm
    Can staying up late can on pile on the pounds? According to the W.H.O., worldwide obesity has nearly doubled since 1980. The trend looks set to continue . Our increasingly sedentary lifestyles, and an abundance of cheap, calorie-dense processed food have now contributed to a situation where 1/3 of the planet is considered overweight or obese. For a long time, the mantra has been that losing weight is all about diet and exercise. But recent discoveries are suggesting another possible factor for weight gain - what we at Sleep Junkies consider to be the third pillar of health. The…

    If you've ever been curious about how Mozart, Darwin and Freud spent their non-waking hours, New York Magazine's infographic compares the sleep habits of geniuses, past and present. The sleep habits of geniuses (Image:New York Magazine) Inspired by Mason Currey's book 'Daily Rituals: How Artists Work', it appears to debunk the myth of the sleep-deprived genius. The majority of the 27 artists and thinkers, including Dickens, Beethoven and Victor Hugo, got a full 8 hours of sleep each night and most were in bed long before midnight. Only a couple of notable night-owls stand out, writers…
  • Sleep apnea linked to loss of hearing

    If you've ever been kept awake by someone snoring, you'll know how aggravating the sound can be. But according to new research, it's the snorers themselves who should be more concerned with 'noise' issues, as a large scale study has revealed that sleep apnea may be linked to hearing loss. What is sleep apnea? Sleep apnea affects approximately 18 million Americans.  It is a disorder caused by the throat muscles relaxing during sleep, which narrows the airways.  Oftentimes, a person’s tongue collapses as well, blocking the throat.  Breathing through these narrow airways is disrupted,…

    Obstructive sleep apnea is one of the most common sleep disorders in the United States. In fact, more than 18 million people in the United States suffer from this debilitating disorder, and many cases go untreated. If you suffer from sleep apnea, you are probably familiar with CPAP machines, but did you know that your dentist can help treat your sleep apnea as well? Dental Signs of Sleep Apnea Many people find it surprising that dentists are able to detect sleep apnea in their patients, often before a patient realizes they even have a sleep disorder. If you experience or your dentist notices…
  • Sleep deprived kids more likely to become obese

    There's a common adage which warns parents that 'a lack of sleep will stunt a child's growth'. Unlike many sayings, this one has some truth behind it. Nighttime is when the body releases HGH (human growth hormone), which is essential for healthy growth and development in childhood. But now scientists have found evidence that too little sleep during infancy may also have the opposite effect, by increasing the chances of children developing obesity. Child obesity has become a hefty problem in developed countries, especially in the United States and Europe.  The World Health Organization now…
