She thought she had Alzheimer’s, but it was really sleep apnea

Just before she turned 65, about 13 years ago, Donna Beveridge began to notice that she was forgetting things and often felt overwhelmed with details that never used to bother her. She made a list of everything she was observing about herself and presented it to her primary care doctor, who referred her to a memory clinic for comprehensive testing followed by an appointment with a neurologist.

“He said, ‘you have probable early stage Alzheimer’s,’” she said, “and to be prepared to be in a nursing home within seven years. And so, that was kind of it.”

Dragging Your Feet? How Lack of Sleep Affects the Way You Walk

Periodically catching up on sleep can improve gait control for the chronically sleep-deprived.

Good sleep can be hard to come by. But a new study finds that if you can make up for lost sleep, even for just a few weekend hours, the extra zzz’s could help reduce fatigue-induced clumsiness, at least in how you walk.

There’s plenty of evidence to show sleep, and how much we get of it, can affect how well we do on cognitive tasks such as solving a math problem, holding a conversation, or even reading this article. Less explored is the question of whether sleep influences the way we walk or carry out other activities that are assumed to be less mentally taxing.

Scientists Find Link between Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Blood Triglyceride Levels

“Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a syndrome characterized by partial or complete obstruction of the upper airways, resulting in intermittent hypoxia, variably accompanied by sleep fragmentation and daytime sleepiness,” said Professor Gary Wittert, from the Freemasons Centre for Male Health and Well-Being at the University of Adelaide and his colleagues.

“In male participants of the Swiss HypnoLaus cohort, the prevalence of moderate-to-severe OSA was 49.7%, with 74.7% men aged 40 or over having OSA syndrome.”

Can blue light-blocking glasses improve your sleep?

Recently, my brother mentioned he was sleeping better since he got new prescription glasses with a blue-light filter. He wears his glasses mostly for reading screens (both computer and smartphone) during the day while at work. So I was intrigued, but a little skeptical: could daytime use of blue light-filtering glasses make a difference in how well he slept? How, when, and why blue light affects us seemed like good questions to pose to an expert before deciding whether those glasses could help me, too.

Q & A

Our readers are invited to email us with their questions!

Q: What are the benefits of sleeping on one side vs the other? (Daniel, F)

Daniel, there is no consistent scientific evidence that sleeping on one side versus the other is better for everyone across the population. However, there is some evidence that with certain medical conditions, sleep on one side or the other may be beneficial. For example, patients who have reflux disease may benefit from sleep on the left side compared to the right, as sleeping on the right side has been shown in one study to relax the connection between the esophagus and the stomach, leading to more acid reflux. In patients with heart conditions, sleeping on the right side may reduce discomfort and shortness of breath, as found in another study. Patients with orthopedic pain may find that sleeping on one side or the other may reduce their pain and thus reduce the disruption in sleep. In general, side sleeping compared to sleeping face up (supine) may reduce the severity of snoring and sleep apnea in some patients. There are even some animal studies which indicate that side sleeping may increase the ability of the brain to eliminate cellular debris from the brain compared to supine sleep.

Q: How much time should it take to fall asleep? (Ariel S.)

Ariel. the average person requires 10 to 20 minutes to fall asleep. If it’s less, it may be a sign that you’re sleep deprived. If it’s much more, it may be an indicator of insomnia. If you struggle to fall asleep, many doctors recommend reading a book or doing a crossword until you feel tired. Don’t rush or stress – falling asleep isn’t something you can just “make” happen.
