Low Melatonin and High Cortisol Levels can Lead to Night Eating

Night eating is a syndrome which is a manifestation of disorders of sleep, mood and eating habits. Night eaters cannot control their appetites once dinner starts. Raiding the refrigerator regularly during the night before bedtime or even after going to bed is one favorite activity thereby suffering from insomnia and mood swings.

All of these symptoms come out at night. But when a night eater awakens in the morning he may have little or no appetite. This feeling of satiety will remain until he will feel hunger pangs in the afternoon where he will now partake of his first meal of the day.

The syndrome which is composed of a pattern of denial of food during the day and bingeing at night will eventually lead to weight gain and obesity.

Studies have shown that night eaters have inadequate levels of the hormone Melatonin, which has a role in the biorhythm, and abnormally high levels of Cortisol, a hormone that influences the mood of a person and which are found unusually high in persons with mood disorders. The low Melatonin levels can create havoc in the sleeping patterns of a person. A high Cortisol level stimulates the appetite thereby predisposing obesity, Type II diabetes, high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure.


"inadequate levels of the

"inadequate levels of the hormone Melatonin" you have said the exact point of what causes sleeplessness in some people but this things also leads to over eating and increase. There is I think liquid melatonin and it helps overcome the low levels of hormone melatonin.

Hi, Arterial pressure is most


Arterial pressure is most commonly measured via a sphygmomanometer, which historically used the height of a column of mercury to reflect the circulating pressure (see Noninvasive measurement). Today blood pressure values are still reported in millimetres of mercury (mmHg), though aneroid and electronic devices do not use mercury.

For each heartbeat, blood pressure varies between systolic and diastolic pressures. Systolic pressure is peak pressure in the arteries, which occurs near the end of the cardiac cycle when the ventricles are contracting. Diastolic pressure is minimum pressure in the arteries, which occurs near the beginning of the cardiac cycle when the ventricles are filled with blood. An example of normal measured values for a resting, healthy adult human is 115 mmHg systolic and 75 mmHg diastolic (written as 115/75 mmHg, and spoken [in the US] as "one fifteen over seventy-five"). Pulse pressure is the difference between systolic and diastolic pressures
