    Poster 1282 Short Dinner to Bedtime Interval Correlates with Increased Intestinal Permeability in Day Workers and Shift Workers

    Author Insight from Garth Swanson, MD, MS, Associate Professor of Medicine, Specialist in Digestive Diseases, Rush University Medical Center

    What’s new here and important for clinicians?

    The main signal that entrains the circadian rhythms of the gastrointestinal tract is food timing.  Recently, there has been increased interest in how food timing can impact diseases linked to metabolic syndromes such as obesity and diabetes.  In this study, we show that a short interval between bedtime can increase intestinal permeability, which is an important factor in diseases such as Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, and diabetes.

    What do patients need to know?

    Shift work is common in modern society, as is social jet lag or constantly adjusting one’s sleep/wake cycle on the weekend.  Patient should be aware that eating late at night just before bed time may be associated with adverse health consequences.
