On March 20, leading mattress delivery company, Online Bed Quilt, responds to an article published by the Times of India, which describes a new link between disturbed sleep and Alzheimer’s disease.
According to the Times of India, a new study published in the JAMA Neurology Journal found that a lack of sleep could be an early symptom of Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers discovered that sleep is usually disrupted in people who have early Alzheimer’s disease. Though these people may not have experienced any memory loss or other problems, researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine found that sleep disturbances are an early sign.
Senior researcher David M. Hotlzman says the new discovery suggests a lack of sleep could actually promote the production of Alzheimer’s plaques. He says the link could help detect and treat Alzheimer’s patients. “This link may provide us with an easily detectable sign of Alzheimer’s pathology,” he says in the article.
The Times of India says the new study is the first to connect sleep disruption to early Alzheimer’s disease.
“Disruptions in sleep can not only affect your daily activities, it can affect your heart health, weight and promote disease,” Justin Maas, a representative from mattress delivery company Online Bed Quilt says. “If sleeping well is the key to preventing Alzheimer’s, I think more people will be interested in finding the cause of their night time disturbances.”
Maas also says old, uncomfortable mattresses could be a leading cause of sleep deprivation. “Uncomfortable mattresses could contribute to sleep disruptions,” he says. “When your body is uncomfortable, it can’t relax and if you can’t relax, the brain functions improperly leading to sleep deprivation.”
