Excessive daytime sleepiness affects an estimated 20% of the general population. While the prevalence of sleepiness in the military is largely unknown, it is well established that short sleep duration...
The main objective of the study was to assess the prevalence, the severity and the daytime course of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) in advanced Parkinson's disease (PD) and to explore how PD patie...
Sleepiness and cognitive impairment are common symptoms observed in patients with epilepsy. We investigate whether self-reported sleepiness is associated with cognitive performance in patients with re...
Driver fatigue is considered to be a major contributor to road traffic crashes. Cardiac monitoring and heart rate variability (HRV) analysis is a candidate method for early and accurate detection of d...
Glycation products are ubiquitous in food at high concentrations in the Western diet. The well-controlled glycation resulting in the production of early glycation products (EGPs) has been proposed as ...
The investigators are involved in a research program to understand how different diets may affect the risk of colorectal polyps and cancer. To that end, the investigators are conducting a ...
This research is being done to evaluate the feasibility of a prudent versus Western diet feeding study in women with asthma in Baltimore City. The results of this research will provide dat...
Compression stockings have beneficial effects on the development of venous thromboembolic complications and oedema during long- haul flights. A randomized controlled trial investigating th...
This study will look at the inflammatory (changes usually associated with infection/injury to the body) and bowel permeability (bowel's ability to allow contents to enter the body) effects...
Cognition was assessed using Minimental state examination (MMSE), Trail making tests A and B (TMT) tests, P300 and quantitative electroencephalography (QEEG) sleepiness was assessed using ...
A diet that contains limited amounts of CARBOHYDRATES. This is in distinction to a regular DIET.
Regular course of eating and drinking adopted by a person or animal. This does not include DIET THERAPY, a specific diet prescribed in the treatment of a disease.
A diet that contains limited amounts of fat with less than 30% of calories from all fats and less than 10% from saturated fat. Such a diet is used in control of HYPERLIPIDEMIAS. (From Bondy et al, Metabolic Control and Disease, 8th ed, pp468-70; Dorland, 27th ed)
A diet which is devoid of GLUTENS from WHEAT; BARLEY; RYE; and other wheat-related varieties. The diet is designed to reduce exposure to those proteins in gluten that trigger INFLAMMATION of the small intestinal mucosa in patients with CELIAC DISEASE.
A course of food intake that is high in FATS and low in CARBOHYDRATES. This diet provides sufficient PROTEINS for growth but insufficient amount of carbohydrates for the energy needs of the body. A ketogenic diet generates 80-90% of caloric requirements from fats and the remainder from proteins.
