Endocrine Effects from Sleep Deprivation: Why Sleep is the Most Important Pillar of Lifestyle Intervention
Physicians, fellows, residents, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and other healthcare professionals need to receive regular updates on professional guidelines, advances in basic science and clinical research, and emerging treatment modalities and management strategies for patients with endocrine disorders. The series will explore new models of multidisciplinary care in the field, especially as it relates to patients with cardiometabolic diseases such as obesity and diabetes. The series aims to expand the knowledge of learners, promote adherence to evidence-based guidelines, enhance the quality of endocrinology care, disseminate best clinical practices, and improve patient outcomes.
Physicians, fellows, residents, nurses, and other healthcare professionals.
At the conclusion of the session, the participants should be able to:
Recognize how sleep deprivation can lead to increased adiposity through increased hunger and energy intake.
Identify the mechanism of increased insulin resistance from sleep deprivation.
Demonstrate greater understanding of how sleep optimization can improve cardiovascular health.
