Introduction: Diet, physical activity and sleep are potential risk factors for overweight and obesity and could influence the proper growth during the developmental age. Therefore, monitoring adolescents ’ lifestyle is essential to better understand the association between body composition and possible risk behavioural variables and to design preventive programme for educating people towards healthy habits. Thus, the aim of the study was to investigate the relations between BMI and lifestyle facto rs in a sample of Italian adolescents.

AbstractPurposeWe assessed the prevalence of positional patients (PPs) and the main predictors of positional dependency in severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). A simulated effect of positional therapy (PT) vs. continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) was also assessed.MethodsPolysomnographic recordings of 292 consecutive patients with severe OSA (Apnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI)  ≥ 30) who slept>  4 h and had ≥ 30 min sleep in both supine and lateral positions were assessed. PPs were defined to have a supine AHI/lateral AHI ratio ≥ two and non-positional patients (NPPs)...

CONCLUSIONS: These exploratory results suggest that reductions in moderate to vigorous PA; increases in EI, fat intake, and sedentary time; and delayed sleep timing midpoint were significantly associated with risk of weight regain. PMID: 31318492 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Despite understanding that healthy sleep promotes school readiness, there is insufficiently specific, actionable information in ECE training, programs, or policies. Findings suggest a need for an awareness campaign with clear, actionable messaging, dissemination of turnkey materials, and integration with policy and professional training systems.

Abstract Background: The unhealthy lifestyle is growing and this can have repercussions on health status demanding actions on the occurrence of diseases and leads to increased expenses. Objective: To examine the interrelationship between the costs of medicine use and lifestyle behaviors. Methods: A cohort study with 118 participants, age around 51.7 ± 7.1 years old. It was collected personal and anthropometric data and information about medicine of continuous use to calculate the costs. Lifestyle variables included habitual physical activity (PA) assessed by pedometer, sedentary behavior by Baecke questionnaire, sle...
