I’ll be presenting at this conference on Friday, March 27 on the subject of “Nutrition and Sleep.”

Sleep has profound impacts on metabolism and food intake; conversely, nutrition can support or subvert optimal sleep. This lecture will examine the impact of sleep on hormonally- and neurally-mediated mechanisms of diet regulation, as well as the contributions of macronutrient balance, meal-timing, and targeted nutritional supplementation on sleep duration and quality, with special attention to sleep disorders. Specific attention will be given to the role of insulin resistance in sleep disorders, the impact of micronutrients like iron and magnesium, or amino acids like tryptophan, and of carbohydrates in generating serotonin production in the brain, and autonomic responses triggered by food intake and hunger.

If you are a health professional who treats or has an interest in treating patients with airway or sleep disorders, I hope to see you there.
