Our grandparents or elderly parents are sleeping too, and also regularly during the day? Excessive daytime sleepiness and the lack of forces and energy might be the indicator that something is wrong. Or better still, the alarm bell of an increased risk of later developing diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and other heart problems. Lots of things need to be taken care of in cases of diabetes, there are cases of diabetic foot ulcers as well that emphasizes on ICD 10 coding for diabetic foot ulcers. To show it is a study to be presented at the 72nd annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology.

The study was based on two telephone interviews with participants, carried out at a distance of three years from each other. The questions ask about sleep habits, from how you sleep at night and day to the quality of the rest of the possible presence of sleep apnea, a parameter of which scientists have taken into account to properly carry out the investigation.

excessive daytime sleepiness In particular, scientists have taken into consideration the presence of an“excessive daytime sleepiness”, or excessive daytime sleepiness” (EDS), a symptom the doctor where the person has a sleep persistent even during the day, often associated with lack of energy, despite having rested a sufficient number of hours during the night. In general, at all ages, it is known that this disorder can also be a sign of underlying pathology, important to discover, such as narcolepsy or obstructive sleep apnea. And today it emerges that even in old age, may be in some way associated to other pathologies.
Sleep, the heart and metabolism, The survey showed that approximately 23% of over 65 – 840 people – reported sleep in the day and falls within the medical criteria of “excessive daytime sleepiness” – excessive daytime sleepiness” (EDS). And among these participants, 41% reported that sleepiness is a chronic problem. The criteria are based on specific questionnaires standard to evaluate the characteristics of sleep. The study showed that, at a statistic level, that all people over 65 who have excessive daytime sleepiness also have a risk more than twice as high, about 2.3 times higher to develop diabetes, or hypertension within the next three years, 2 times higher than a cancer, and well 2.5 times greater than heart disease, all always at a distance of three years.
Too much sleep, a link with cancer, and arthritis? In particular, a group (about 6.2%) of participants already in the first interview said he often sleep in the daytime had a diagnosis of diabetes within 3 years. While among those who do not have these sleep problems, the percentage drops to 2.9%. But also the risk of cancer seems to be slightly higher among those with a excessive daytime sleepiness: 2.4% developed a tumour at three years, vs. 0.8% of those who do not need sleep in the day.
from the survey it was found that those who, only in the second interview, therefore in the second step of the study, reported to sleep in the day has a higher risk of 50% have diseases of musculoskeletal system and connective tissue, such as arthritis or lupus. These and other details are still to be interpreted and to deepen and there is a nexus of cause-and-effect given that it is a statistical study that shows the relation between daytime sleepiness with other diseases. In addition, the authors state that the results are the fruit of the reported data by the participants themselves and, therefore, may not be very precise. For all these reasons, it is necessary to take care to study the results, however, provide a first indication of how to get too much sleep, in addition to the hours of night rest, can be a signal that something is not working perfectly. And in any case, even when one is young, is one item to report to your doctor.
