SHAFAQNA Türkiye – Faculty of Medicine, Trakya University Head of the Department of Physiology prof. Dr. Levent Ozturk stressed that tea and coffee contain a number of stimulant chemicals and that drinking too much of them can make it difficult to fall asleep.
prof. Dr. Ozturk has made a statement about what sleep patterns should be like during Ramadan. Stating that people who fast during Ramadan tend to smoke a lot to cope during the day, the head of the Department of Physiology at the Faculty of Medicine of the Trakya University Prof. Dr. Ozturk noted that smoking is one of the factors that disrupt healthy sleep.
“Smoking is one of the factors that impair sleep health”
Stating that smoking is one of the factors that disrupt healthy sleep, prof. Dr. Ozturk warned those who fast and tend to increase the frequency of smoking after iftar. Urging fasting citizens not to smoke heavily to cope all day, prof. Dr. Ozturk said: “The half-life of nicotine in the body is about 90 minutes. Nicotine deficiency begins to show up within 2 hours. They may drink in a regular stream, or they may see this as an opportunity and take a step towards getting rid of the habit of smoking and reducing smoking.
“Excessive consumption can make it difficult to fall asleep”
Emphasizing that tea and coffee contain a number of stimulant chemicals that can make it difficult to fall asleep in excess, Prof. Dr. Ozturk stated that if it is difficult to fall asleep, the duration of sleep will be reduced in case of getting up for suhoor. Having stated that those who have such problems can sleep for half an hour or an hour during the day, if working conditions allow, Prof. Dr. Ozturk stated that industrial accidents that could happen this way would also be prevented.
Claiming that he went out of his usual sleep pattern in Ramadan, Prof. Dr. Levent Ozturk explained that there is a division of sleep with getting up for suhoor at night, and at this point, what should be considered for quality sleep.
Claiming that sleep cycles during the night are approximately 90 minutes, prof. Dr. Ozturk noted that with a 4-hour sleep, one can get as much sleep as the brain needs.
“Night sleep time should not exceed 23.00”
Claiming that sleep time should not exceed 23:00 after iftar, Prof. Dr. Ozturk emphasized that the Mediterranean type of diet will also have a positive effect on the quality of sleep. Pointing out that reducing the consumption of fatty foods and red meat during Ramadan has a direct impact on the quality of sleep, Prof. Dr. Ozturk stated that a Western-style diet should be avoided.
“Maybe it’s delayed sleep phase syndrome”
Claiming that people differ from each other and individuals are divided into three types: chickens, owls and intermediate types in terms of sleep level, prof. Dr. Ozturk stated that people with owl-like features tend to go to bed later and after sahur.
Stating that this situation can lead to a medical disorder called delayed sleep phase syndrome when used for 1 month under normal conditions, Prof. Dr. Ozturk said that there may be problems returning to normal sleep patterns after the end of Ramadan.
