Early bird or night owl? How your sleep cycle puts you at risk of heart disease and diabetes

Night owls are at a higher risk of developing heart disease and type 2 diabetes than early birds, new research has found.

Published in Experimental Physiology, the US study found night owls - people who prefer to be active later in the day - have a reduced ability to use and burn fats for energy which allows them to build up in the body.

This can lead to an increased risk of getting type 2 diabetes and heart disease, researchers from Rutgers University in New Jersey found.

Sleep Science

REM Sleep May Exist to Heat Your Brain Up From The Inside

Even if the content of your dreams isn't hot or steamy, slipping into rapid eye movement (REM) sleep might still warm you up from the inside, according to a new review.

In nature, warm-blooded creatures with lower body temperatures tend to have longer periods of REM sleep; while those with higher body temperatures, like birds, experience less REM sleep overall.

Are Insomniacs Overthinking Sleep?

From WiFi-enabled sleep trackers to wearable brain-altering apps, sleep technology is becoming increasingly sophisticated. But is the antidote to insomnia far more ancient?

You will likely spend about 26 years of your life sleeping. You’ll use up another seven years just falling asleep, and for many insomniacs, that doesn’t include all the doomscrolling, clock-watching, and listening to purposely boring podcasts in the small hours of the night. Insomnia rates vary widely by culture and demographics, but the consensus is that about 30 percent of adults worldwide have difficulty sleeping.

Better sleep, less stress. Is this the new must-have gadget?

Zyppah Customer Spotlight

Name: Joey P.

Age: 74

Years of snoring: 30+

Number of snoring products tried: 4

Experience: Truly amazing. Not only am I not snoring more than a couple minutes a night -- for 30 years I've been snoring at least an hour a night--I wake up far more refreshed! Also, because I've been tracking my sleeping for a few years with an app on my phone, I know how much deep sleep and shallow sleep I get every night. Since I started tracking my sleep, I typically go between shallow and deep sleeps four or five time a night, but with my Zyppah, I stay in deep sleep for 4-5 hours a night and only go into shallow sleep when I first go to sleep and when I'm waking up in the morning! This is the product I've been praying would be created for years, but never believed would actually come to light! THANK YOU

Q & A

Our readers are invited to email us with their questions!

Q: How can I tell if my CPAP pressure needs adjusting? (Elizabeth K.)

A: Hello Elizabeth!

Not enough air pressure from your CPAP equipment will also lead to ineffective therapy. Generally, you will need enough pressure to keep your airway open rather than collapsing, ensuring you get the oxygen your body needs throughout the night.

Many CPAP users whose pressure is too low will experience more than five apnea or hypopnea events per hour, meaning their therapy is ineffective. These users will continue to experience the negative effects of sleep apnea, including poor sleep, waking up gasping for air, feeling air-starved, chronic fatigue, high blood pressure, and others.

Another sign your air pressure may be too low is continuing to snore loudly during your CPAP therapy. Proper air pressure should keep your airway open through the night, so if you're still snoring while using your CPAP machine, and your mask isn't leaking, then your pressure may need to be increased.

Finally, CPAP users with low pressure can experience aerophagia, as gasping for air during the night causes them to "swallow" air into their stomachs. As with aerophagia caused by pressure that's too high, these users will have problems with bloating, gas, discomfort, and excessive belching.

Q: I've been consistent with my CPAP treatment. How come I'm still tired? (Abby U.)

A: Hi Abby!

The science explains that there is a residual sleepiness in some patients with sleep apnea, which takes time to disappear.
Or there could be hidden problems that directly affect your therapy that may or may not be connected to your CPAP.

Your CPAP could have a mask leak, or the device may not be putting off enough air pressure for you to experience benefits. In these cases it's a matter of consulting with your Sleep Doctor for a solution.

Your tiredness could also be coming from additional medications that you are taking, such an antidepressants or even a night time drink. In this case, please consult with your primary physician.
