Associations among social jetlag, sleep ‐related characteristics, premenstrual symptoms, depression, and body mass index of female nursing students

This study aimed to identify the predictors of female nursing students ’ body mass index (BMI), including social jetlag.Design and MethodsThis secondary data analysis of a cross-sectional survey conducted in 2015 included data of 304 female undergraduate nursing students. A hierarchical regression analysis was performed to identify the predictors of BMI.FindingsSocial jetlag was the most potent predictor of BMI, followed by premenstrual symptoms and sleep quality.Practice ImplicationsThis study presents foundational data for developing interventions for social jetlag management as a strategy to prevent obesity in female nursing students by identifying factors predicting BMI.

Introduction: Obstructive sleep apnea is a chronic disease which include a variety of symptoms such as snoring, daytime sleepiness... known to be related with poor quality of life (QOL). We aimed to explore the relationships between excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) and QOL in patients suffering from moderate to severe OSA.Materials and methods: A cross-sectional study including OSA patients, confirmed by overnight polygraphy, performed in Pneumology Department. Daytime sleepiness was assessed with the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS). QOL and anxiety depression were assessed using the Medical Outcomes Short Form-36 (SF-36)...

Background: Comorbidities seem to be more common in subjects with than without asthma. However, studies comparing chronic diseases in subjects with and without asthma considering age of asthma onset are scarce.Objective: We aimed to compare non-respiratory diseases in adults with and without asthma, considering age at asthma diagnosis.Methods: In 2016, the FinEsS respiratory questionnaire was sent to 16,000 20-69-year-old randomly selected adults in Helsinki and Western Finland. Physician-diagnosed asthma was categorized to early- (0-11), intermediate- (12-39) and late-diagnosed asthma (40-69 years).Results:...

This study aimed to describe adherence to 24-hour movement guidelines and determine factors associated with meeting guidelines in pregnancy planning and recently postpartum parents. A survey of preconception care attitudes and beliefs was conducted in Canadian adults who were pregnancy planning or ≤5 years postpartum. The Global Physical Activity Questionnaire was used to evaluate physical activity and sedentary time. Respondents reported the number of hours spent sleeping and using a screen per day. Multiple logistic regressions were run to determine factors (sociodemographic and health related) associated with meeting...

Conclusion: Fibromyalgia patients are particularly prone to suicide, in terms of ideation, attempt, risk and events, warranting a pre-emptive screening of their mental health status. Given the few studies available, the high amount of heterogeneity, the evidence of publications bias and the lack of statistical significance when adjusting for underlying psychiatric co-morbidities, further high-quality studies should be conducted.Clinical Trial Registration:ClinicalTrial.gov, identifier 10.17605/OSF.IO/Y4BUE.

Obesity is a heterogeneous metabolic disease, and the most commonly known associated conditions are diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and obstructive sleep apnea. But there are myriad other medical improvements that include relief of joint pain, relief of depression, improved cancer risks, and importantly for families, improved fertility. Because of the progressive nature of obesity and subsequent co-morbidities, patients who are often considering surgery are those who are in the later years of life or toward the end of their reproductive age.

ConclusionsThe findings suggest that there may be a need to develop sleep quality interventions for cancer survivors with obesity. Even after adjustment for multiple clinical and demographic factors, BMI (particularly obesity) was associated with poor sleep. Thus, researchers and health professionals should find ways to support individuals with overweight and obesity to improve their sleep quality.Implications for Cancer SurvivorsThe present findings highlight that poor sleep is a common issue in cancer survivors. Interventions seeking to improve outcomes for cancer survivors over the longer term should consider sleep quality.

Chronobiol Int. 2021 Nov 2:1-16. doi: 10.1080/07420528.2021.1994984. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSynchronization to periodic cues such as food/water availability and light/dark cycles is crucial for living organisms' homeostasis. Both factors have been heavily influenced by human activity, with artificial light at night (ALAN) being an evolutionary challenge imposed over roughly the last century. Evidence from studies in humans and animal models shows that overt circadian misalignment, such as that imposed to about 20% of the workforce by night shift work (NSW), negatively impinges on the internal temporal order of endoc...
