Introduction: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and chronic obstructive pulmonary (COPD), are usually accompanied by several comorbidities. Aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of comorbidities in OSA and COPD-OSA overlap syndrome (OS) patients and to explore differences between these two groups.Methods: Included were consecutive OS (n=163, 138 males, AHI>5/h and FEV1/FVC5/h and FEV1/FVC>0.7), matched in terms of gender, age, BMI, and smoking history, diagnosed with polysomnography and pulmonary function testing.Results: As mentioned, the two groups were matched in age (p=0.221), BMI (p=0.496) and neck circumfer...

Background: Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome(OSAS) is the most common form of sleep disordered breathing affecting 2-4% children. Repetitive episodes of hypoxia may affect changes in bone metabolism. We aim to study the association of children with OSAS and risk of early osteoporosis.Methods: 86 children between 10-17 years-old suspected of having OSAS and 64 children without OSAS(control group) were included. Polysomnography was performed in all children suspected OSAS. Physical activity scoring for children(PAQ-C), dietary calcium intake(food frequency questionnaire), Vitamin D levels and quantitative calcaneus ultrasou...

ABSTRACTShort sleep duration, recognized as a public health epidemic, is associated with adverse health conditions, yet little is known about the association between sleep and bone health. We tested the associations of usual sleep behavior and bone mineral density (BMD) and osteoporosis. In a sample of 11,084 postmenopausal women from the Women's Health Initiative (WHI; mean age 63.3  years, SD = 7.4), we performed a cross‐sectional study of the association of self‐reported usual hours of sleep and sleep quality (WHI Insomnia Rating Score) with whole body, total hip, femoral neck, and spine BMD using linear regr...

This study examines whether functional components and diseases or risk factors predict the same phenomena.MethodsData were included from The Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) wave seven for participants age ≥50 years. A 52-item FI was constructed from physical health data with 26 functional and 26 non-functional items. Functional items were obtained from activities of daily living questions (ph048&ph049), and health-related activity limitation (gali question). Non-functional items were obtained from questions on BMI, self-perceived health, disease/risks (ph006), medication use (sleep, anxiety...

llo Persico Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide and its incidence is definitely increasing. NAFLD is a metabolic disease with extensive multi-organ involvement, whose extra-hepatic manifestations include type 2 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, obstructive sleep apnea, chronic kidney disease, osteoporosis, and polycystic ovarian syndrome. Recently, further evidence has given attention to pathological correlations not strictly related to metabolic disease, also incorporating in this broad spectrum of systemic involvement hypothyroidism, psoriasis,...

From new employee entitlements to soap opera storylines, older women ’s health needs a bigger profileConnected as it is with ageing, it is not surprising that the menopause has a bad reputation. Even for women who have generally found their periods to be a nuisance, the cessation of the monthly cycle of egg production often comes as a shock. As well as the psychological impact of what used to euphemistically be called “the change”, the menopause brings with it symptoms for which a lot of women find themselves alarmingly unprepared – asmany readers told us when we invited them to share their stories....
