Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Glucose Tolerance, and β-Cell Function in Adults With Prediabetes or Untreated Type 2 Diabetes in the Restoring Insulin Secretion (RISE) Study.

Diabetes Care 2021 Apr 5;44(4):993-1001. Epub 2021 Feb 5.

University of Chicago, Chicago, IL.

Objective: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with insulin resistance and has been described as a risk factor for type 2 diabetes. Whether OSA adversely impacts pancreatic islet β-cell function remains unclear. We aimed to investigate the association of OSA and short sleep duration with β-cell function in overweight/obese adults with prediabetes or recently diagnosed, treatment-naive type 2 diabetes.

Objective short sleep duration and 24-hour blood pressure.

Int J Cardiol Hypertens 2020 Dec 29;7:100062. Epub 2020 Oct 29.

Department of Medicine, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, New York, NY, USA.

Background: Short sleep duration is a contributor to cardiovascular disease (CVD) events and mortality. Short sleep duration is associated with an increased risk of high clinic blood pressure (BP). BP measured outside the clinic using 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is a better predictor of an individual's CVD risk. Read More

Effect of melatonin on sleep, behavior, and cognition in ADHD and chronic sleep-onset insomnia.

J Am Acad Child Adolesc Psychiatry 2007 Feb;46(2):233-41

Epilepsy Center Kempenhaeghe, Heeze, The Netherlands.

Objective: To investigate the effect of melatonin treatment on sleep, behavior, cognition, and quality of life in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and chronic sleep onset insomnia.

Method: A total of 105 medication-free children, ages 6 to 12 years, with rigorously diagnosed ADHD and chronic sleep onset insomnia participated in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial using 3 or 6 mg melatonin (depending on body weight), or placebo for 4 weeks. Primary outcome parameters were actigraphy-derived sleep onset, total time asleep, and salivary dim light melatonin onset. Read More

Actigraphic recordings in quantification of periodic leg movements during sleep in children.

Sleep Med 2005 Jul 1;6(4):325-32. Epub 2005 Apr 1.

Division of Pediatric Sleep Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, University of Louisville, 571 South Floyd Street, Suite 439, Louisville, KY 40202, USA.

Background: Periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD) has recently emerged as a relatively frequent and markedly underdiagnosed condition in children that induces arousals and sleep fragmentation and leads to poor learning and behavioral problems. Because a cost-effective and widely available alternative to pediatric polysomnography is needed for diagnosis of limb movement disorders, this study sought to examine whether periodic leg movements in children could be reliably identified using recently developed actigraphy software.

Methods: Bilateral actigraphs were worn around the feet by 99 children ages 4-12 years during standard clinical overnight polysomnography, which included bilateral anterior tibial electromyogram (EMG). Read More
