  • Alzheimer can spread it roots if you lose even one night's sleep

    Alzheimer can spread it roots if you lose even one night's sleep

    January 13, 2020 9:27 IST

    Disruption in one night's sleep can lead to getting Alzheimer's disease, a recent study has stated. The interruption in the sound sleep for a single night aggravates the level of tau protein in any young male's body, thus gives rise to the chances of developing the disease. According to CNN, the report was published on Wednesday in neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.As defined by the Alzheimer's Association, tau is the name of a protein that helps in stabilizing the internal structure of the brain's nerve cells. An abnormal build-up of tau protein in the body can end up in causing interior cells to fall apart and eventually developing Alzheimer's. Earlier studies have also shown that getting deprived of sleep can allow higher tau development and accumulation. Thus that poor sleep can hasten the development of cognitive issues.

    According to a recent study, people who spend longer than usual hours at the workplace are more susceptible to the onset of hypertension. A considerable proportion of such individuals may also suffer a hidden form of hypertension, also known as masked hypertension, which as the name suggests may go undetected in clinical settings. The new study, conducted by a Canadian research team, enlisted more than 3,500 white-collar employees at three public institutions in Quebec. These institutions generally provide insurance services to the general population. Compared with colleagues who worked fewer than 35 hours a week, working 49 or more hours each week was linked to a 70 per cent greater likelihood of having masked hypertension and a 66 per cent greater likelihood of having sustained hypertension- elevated blood pressure readings in and out of a clinical setting.
