As humans are getting exposed to heat can be one of the most detrimental things we can ever face. Moreover, Heat is necessary but excessive heat can open doors of tons of diseases, for sure. Hence, to let you know more on this topic, let us move ahead and discover the top 5 reasons so as to why heat makes you sleepy-
- Dehydration: Yes, that is to the point. Heat generally makes us tired and as a result, lots of water and electrolytes are taken out of our body. With this, we tend to feel a lot more tired and full of dizziness. Further, with the loss of water and essential salts, our body moves into dehydration state which makes us sleepier.
- Keeping oneself Cool: Like any other sweating, our body expands and contracts on a regular basis. In this scenario, due to heating, our body expands in an attempt to cool down to a minimal extent. With this, like any other energy, with expanding, our body becomes tired and a lot sleepier than the usual.
- Light Exposure: Heat has a relation with sunlight which does affects the sleep and wake cycle. Obviously, this is surely not a bad thing. In fact, people who don’t get enough of sunlight gets more prone to a number of diseases. However, a constant exposure to light which does drain our energies and makes us feel more tired and pale.
- Heat has the ability to trick your brain: As we know, our bodies do trick heat with daytime which is good but can become detrimental at times. Further, it causes our brain to feel awake when we are suffering from a hot climate. And, when we enter any cold environment, all the fatigue attacks our body and makes us more worse and tired.
- Chemical changes occurs in our Body: With heat and sun being the main culprit of dehydration, they bring a series of chemical changes to our body. In chemical changes, it includes tanning, sunburn and even wrinkles become a major part in this case. Hence, with a series of such chemical changes, our body will become more prone to sleep, for sure.

Monday, june 8, 2015 (healthday news) -- concentration and attention problems caused by sleep deprivation might be eased by eating less late at night, according to a new study.
The research included 44 volunteers, aged 21 to 50. For three days, they were given unlimited access to food and drink during the day. But they were only allowed to sleep four hours a night.
" adults consume approximately 500 additional calories during late-night hours when they are sleep-restricted" senior author david dinges, director of the unit for experimental psychiatry and chief of the division of sleep and chronobiology at the university of pennsylvania in philadelphia, said in a university news release.
On the fourth night, about half of the participants continued to have unlimited access to food and drink. The other half were restricted to water from 10 p. M. Until they went to sleep at 4 a. M.
At 2 a. M. On each of the four nights, the participants underwent tests to measure their memory, thinking skills, sleepiness, stress level and mood.
On the fourth night of sleep restriction, those who fasted had better reaction times and fewer attention lapses than those who ate, the findings showed.
Also on the fourth night, those who ate had much slower reaction times and more attention lapses compared to the first three nights. The people who fasted didn't show a decrease in performance, the investigators found.
The study was scheduled to be presented this week at the annual meeting of the associated professional sleep societies in seattle. Findings presented at meetings are generally viewed as preliminary until they've been published in a peer-reviewed journal.
In another study to be presented at the meeting, the same team of researchers found that adults with chronic lack of sleep have a reduced metabolism. The researchers suggested that people may need to compensate for this loss of calorie-burning power by increasing their physical activity levels or reducing their calorie intake to prevent weight gain after sleep deprivation.
This study included 36 healthy adults aged 21 to 50. Their resting metabolic rates -- how much energy their bodies use when relaxed -- was measured after normal nights of sleep, and after five nights of sleeping just four hours a night.
Resting metabolism decreased after sleep deprivation, the study found. The good news is that it returned to normal after a night of recovery sleep, according to the study.
" short sleep duration is a significant risk factor for weight gain and obesity, particularly in african americans and men" study senior author namni goel, a research associate professor of psychology in psychiatry at the university of pennsylvania, said in the news release.
Case 1 : A 65yr old women develops severe pain in the lower back while trying to lift her grandson from the floor. She was then rushed to the hospital and on investigating was found to have osteoporotic collapse of lumbar vetrebrae.
Case 2 : A 72 yr old female sustained a small twisting jerk while walking over the uneven surface and developed sharp pain in the hip region followed by difficulty in walking and when examined was found to have fracture in the hip.
These cases are just to exemplify that Osteoporosis may not cause any apparent symptoms. Patients may not know they have osteoporosis until they break (fracture) a bone.
Osteoporosis is defined as a systemic skeletal disease characterised by low bone mass and microarchitectural deterioration of bone tissue, with a consequent increase in bone fragility and susceptibility to fracture. Although the diagnosis of the disease relies on the quantitative assessment of bone mineral density, which is a major determinant of bone strength, the clinical significance of osteoporosis lies in the fractures that arise.
Common sites for osteoporotic fracture are the spine, hip, distal forearm and proximal humerus. The remaining lifetime probability in women, at menopause, of a fracture at any one of these sites exceeds that of breast cancer.
Osteoporotic fractures are a major cause of morbidity in the population. Hip fractures cause acute pain and loss of function, and nearly always lead to hospitalisation. Recovery is slow, and rehabilitation is often incomplete, with many patients permanently institutionalised in nursing homes. Vertebral fractures may cause acute pain and loss of function but may also occur without serious symptoms. Vertebral fractures often recur, however, and the consequent disability increases with the number of fractures. Distal radial fractures also lead to acute pain and loss of function, but functional recovery is usually good or excellent.
A dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA) scan can be used as a screening test for osteopenia (bone loss that precedes osteoporosis). This test measures bone density in the hip, wrist and spine and is more precise than an X-ray.
The National Osteoporosis Foundation recommends the following groups of people should have Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA) scans to screen for osteoporosis:
All women age 65 and older
All postmenopausal women under age 65 who have risk factors for osteoporosis
Postmenopausal women with fractures
Women with a medical condition associated with osteoporosis
How Is Osteoporosis Treated and Prevented?
There is no current cure for osteoporosis. Osteoporosis treatment involves stopping further bone loss, and strengthening bones that show signs of weakness. Prevention of osteoporosis is key.
Prevention and Treatment:
1. Exercise : Exercise is important in helping improve muscle strength and balance. Consult your doctor for the type and duration of exercise that is right for you
It is also important to consider other medical problems that may also be present (heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure) before starting any exercise program.
2. Quit Smoking and Curtail Alcohol
3. Calcium Supplements
4. Calcium-Fortified Foods
5. Vitamin D
There are several types of medications used to treat osteoporosis.
Menopausal estrogen hormone therapy.
Selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs).
Anabolic drugs: these are the only drugs that actually build bone mass. Teriparatide, a form of parathyroid hormone, is one example of this type of drug
