Sleep dysfunction is not a normal part of aging and impairs the quality of life, function and health of the older adult. Common sleep disorders affecting the older adult are insomnia, obstructive sleep apnea, and restless legs syndrome. The multidisciplinary treatment of sleep complaints in the older adult, includes pharmacological and non-pharmacological/behavioral interventions. In addition, the geriatric specialist is in a unique opportunity to offer guidance on the use of consumer sleep technologies.

Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of vitamin D on severity of restless legs syndrome in patients with idiopathic restless legs syndrome (RLS). METHODS: Patients with idiopathic RLS completed questionnaires including the International Restless Legs Severity Scale (IRLSS) and were evaluated for vitamin D deficiency. Patients with deficiency of vitamin D were treated with 50,000 units per week for 2 months. At the end of the 2 months, vitamin D levels were re-measured and disease severity was re-evaluated in patients who reached adequate vitamin D level. Subgroups of IRLSS questionnaire were also analyzed...
