Einstein in the Media

The Associated Press interviews Michael Thorpy, M.B., Ch.B., about a new study showing that regular disruption of nighttime sleep can lead to elevated blood sugar levels and a sluggish metabolic rate, setting the stage for diabetes. Dr. Thorpy notes that diabetes isn’t the only worry; impaired sleep has been linked to high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, depression, memory impairment, a weakened immune system and even cancer. Dr. Thorpy is professor of clinical neurology at Einstein and director of the Sleep-Wake Disorders Center at Montefiore Medical Center.
