“Our results not only suggest that excessive daytime naps may indicate an increased risk of Alzheimer’s dementia, but also show that a faster annual increase in daytime naps may be a sign of deterioration or unfavorable clinical progression of the disease,” said researcher Bing. Read the statement.

The research was conducted with more than 1,000 elderly people over 81 years of age whose sleep was monitored by a clock for 14 days. Regardless of the known risk factors for disease, longer and more frequent daytime naps were a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease in cognitively normal men and women. In addition, annual increases in the duration and frequency of naps accelerated as the disease progressed.

“We hope to draw more attention to sleep patterns during the day and the importance of patients monitoring whether their sleep schedule changes over time,” said Cohn, who is the study’s co-author.
