Title: Can Lack of Sleep Kill You ?
Post by: Mulligan on November 26, 2009, 10:44:12 AM
(http://www.sap.com/india/about/tribute/images/ranjan_400.jpg)

A month ago, many of us heard about the sad demise of Ranjan Das (above) from Bandra, Mumbai. Ranjan, just 42 years of age, was the CEO of SAP-Indian Subcontinent, the youngest CEO of an MNC in India . He was very active in sports, was a fitness freak and a marathon runner. It was common to see him run on Bandra's Carter Road . Just after Diwali, on 21st Oct, he returned home from his gym after a workout, collapsed with a massive heart attack and died. He is survived by his wife and two very young kids.

It was certainly a wake-up call for corporate India . However, it was even more disastrous for runners amongst us. Since Ranjan was an avid marathoner ( in Feb 09, he ran Chennai Marathon at the same time some of us were running Pondicherry Marathon 180 km away ), the question came as to why an exceptionally active, athletic person succumb to heart attack at 42 years of age.

Was it the stress?

A couple of you called me asking about the reasons. While Ranjan had mentioned that he faced a lot of stress, that is a common element in most of our lives. We used to think that by being fit, one can conquer the bad effects of stress. So I doubted if the cause was stress.

The Real Reason

However, everyone missed out a small line in the reports that Ranjan used to make do with 4-5 hours of sleep. This is an earlier in
terview of Ranjan on NDTV in the program 'Boss' Day Out': Boss' Day Out: Ranjan Das of SAP India.

Here he himself admits that he would love to get more sleep ( and that he was not proud of his ability to manage without sleep, contrary to what others extolled ).

Lack of sleep can cause heart diseases, mental disorder like psychosis or bipolar disorder.

Psychosis is not caused by lack of sleep. Psychosis or any neurological disorders is due to a pathology in dopamine levels. Excessive dopamine leads to psychosis and a deficiency of dopamine leads to parkinsonian-like symptoms.

But you are right on the latter tho. Lack of sleep can reduce the immune system's health and can put strain on the CVS.

Nothing can replace a good night sleep at least 6-8 hrs within
    24 hours period in a day.
It makes you look vibrant  and not like a rag doll, dragging her feet to move.  ;D

An 8-hour of sleep can save you from many illnesses. If you want to be effective and productive the whole day, sleep early at night.

well, too much sleep, not waking up for that matter, can do as much damage.  ;D

seriously, this thread is making me look into my habits and take them for what they are... my sleeping hours are similar to that of the late ranjan.  and i have no corporation to boot.  i'm going to the doctor for this...

Isles, yes, ask them if they can prescribe you some necessary sleeping meds. If you are scared of taking meds, perhaps, taking up some physical activity to induce sleep. Have you tried asking your workers to massage you ? That usually does the trick.

thanks for the tips, lorenz.  but i'm afraid of massage because my spine is delicate; i'm scoliotic.  i'm okay with stillnox, as long as i take only 1/2 tablet and only when necessary.  i've just asked my banana republic to secure a doctor's prescription.

sleeping pills can cause premature death. it's all in the news headlines last week.

only if one overdoses or takes it with alcohol. that is why we always tell our patients not to take any MDX with alcohol.
alcohol can inhibit the liver's P450 enzymes, which can lead to the exacerbation of drug effects.

yes, isles. for your situation where  you are having chronic sleep problems, it would be beneficial to acquire anxiolytics or sleep medication. again, just make sure you don't take it with any alcohol. don't take excess. okay?

oh i see. are you having problems sleeping because of the postural positioning, isles? maybe you can ask one of your maids to massage your head, ask her to massage the back part of your head (the occiput), as it can induce your parasympathetic nervous system. it can make you sleepy very fast. :)

Mao ni ron ang sitwasyon: ang atong tumong katulog
Apan ang nahitabo mao ang paugnat sa kusog.
Aw, mas maayo nga ilisan na lang ang kadulog
Aron mahuwasan dayon ta sa atong kahubog.
