Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & PsychiatryInsufficient Sleep During Adolescence and Risk of Multiple Sclerosis: Results from a Swedish Case-control Study

Shift work has previously been linked to an increased risk of developing MS, presumably due to the resulting sleep deprivation and circadian desynchrony. The current study compared sleeping 7–9 hours/night during adolescence, with less than 7 hours/night and found a 40% increase in risk for developing MS in the short-sleep cohort. The authors conclude that “insufficient sleep and low sleep quality during adolescence seem to increase the risk of subsequently developing MS.”
