Graves consequencias de uma noite sem dormir


The effect of acute sleep deprivation on skeletal muscle protein synthesis and the hormonal environment ( scientific paper)

  • A single night of total sleep deprivation is sufficient to induce anabolic resistance and a procatabolic environment. These acute changes may represent mechanistic precursors driving the metabolic dysfunction and body composition changes associated with chronic sleep deprivation.
  • Acute sleep deprivation reduced muscle protein synthesis by 18% 
  • In addition, sleep deprivation increased plasma cortisol by 21% (p = .030) and decreased plasma testosterone by 24% (p = .029)
