This study aimed to compare sugar intake in Australian children with current guidelines and determine if total sugar consumption as a percentage of energy (sugar %E) exacerbates the relationship between sleep and behaviour. A sample of 287 children aged 8-12 years (boys 48.8%, age: 10.7 ± 1.3 years), and their parents/guardians completed a battery of questionnaires. Children completed a food frequency questionnaire, and parents completed demographic, sleep, and behaviour questionnaires. Average sugar intake was 134.9 ± 71.7 g per day (sugar %E 26.0 &plus...

Authors: Crosta F, Desideri G, Marini C Abstract An association of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and other sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) with Parkinson's disease (PD) has been reported in some small studies. In the present study we investigated the occurrence of SDB in a large consecutive outpatient series. This is a case-control study in subjects attending a neurological clinic where all patients were screened for SDB by means of sleep-wake history, Epworth Sleepiness Scale, and full-night polysomnography, when indicated. 3194 patients were recruited. Of these, 194 were affected by PD and 77 by other ...

Authors: de Tommaso M, Delussi M Abstract Reduced habituation of the nociceptive blink reflex (NBR) is considered a trait marker for genetic predisposition to migraine. In this open-label randomized controlled study, we aimed to test the efficacy of a biofeedback training based on learning of habituation of the NBR (NBR biofeedback) compared with pharmacological (topiramate) treatment and NBR biofeedback plus topiramate treatment in a cohort of migraine without aura patients eligible for prophylaxis. Thirty-three migraine patients were randomly assigned to three months of treatment with: 1) NBR biofeedback, 2) NBR ...

AbstractMeasures to identify infancy mental health problems are essential to guide interventions and reduce the risk of developmental psychopathology in early years. We investigated a new service-setting-based measure the Copenhagen Infant Mental Health Screening (CIMHS) within the general child health surveillance by community health nurses (CHN). The study population of 2973 infants was assessed by CIMHS at age 9 –10 months. A subsample of 416 children was examined at age 1½ years, using parent interviews including the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL 1½–5), Check List of Autism and Toddlers ...
