    How the Circadian Clock Impacts Kidney Function, Cardiovascular Health, & Predictive Homeostasis with Dr. Michelle Gumz

    Play Episode Listen Later Jan 23, 2023 18:33


    Dr. Michelle Gumz is an associate professor at the University of Florida. Her research focuses on the kidney's circadian clock and its relationship to cardiovascular health. In this episode, Dr. Gumz details how the circadian clock provides a mechanism for predictive homeostasis that directly impacts cardiovascular and kidney function. She also explains why normal sleep patterns are critical to long-term health outcomes. Dr. Gumz has a long-time interest in the molecular control of renal function. The Gumz laboratory is investigating the role of the molecular circadian clock in the kidney with the long-term goal of determining how the clock in the kidney contributes to the control of blood pressure and overall cardiovascular health. Aldosterone is a mineralocorticoid hormone that regulates sodium balance and blood pressure. As a graduate student, Dr. Gumz was the first to identify the circadian clock gene Period 1 as an aldosterone target. She has subsequently shown that Period 1 regulates the transcription of alpha ENaC, the aldosterone-regulated and rate-limiting subunit of the epithelial sodium channel. New areas of study include cross-talk between the kidney clock and other tissue clocks and sex differences in the function of Period 1 and Bmal1, another critical core clock gene.

I open up about my need to slow down and take some time off, how my lack of intentional downtime has recently hampered my drive and creativity, and why this trend of avoiding time off may impact your performance. I also highlight how the United States is the only country in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a group of 36 of the world's wealthiest nations, that doesn't require employers to give workers annual paid leave. This has led to The Center for Economic Policy and Research calling the U.S. the “No Vacation Nation.” Finally, I discuss signs to look out for that indicate that you may need some time off.

That's what high performance is to me, the ability to adapt rapidly so you can achieve your potential. There are five key pillars to creating the conditions for adaptability: sleep, exercise, mental resilience, nutrition, and community/relationships.” - Dr. Erik Korem   "Stress is your brain and body preparing you to do something effortful." Dr. Alex Auerbach “I maybe have a different concept on leadership. To me, leading is a verb. If you're leading, you're a leader. If you're swimming, you're a swimmer, if you're driving, you're a driver. If you're leading, you're by definition, a leader. I define leading as being looked to in a particular moment to decide or perform an action based on your unique gifts and abilities. So by that definition, everybody is a leader. All rank and role really describe is how many people are hoping you get it right when it's your turn to wear the weight.” - Clint Bruce "Attention is the currency of performance." - Dr. Peter Haberl “That's what I've discovered in the lives of brilliant, prolific, healthy creatives, is that they have networks of people they leverage in the course of their work. That they learn from, that they were challenged by, that they gave great insight and purview into their own life and work, in such a way that they were able to receive feedback that helped them get better at what they do.” - Todd Henry "Restful and fulfilling sleep enables you to grow, adapt, and thrive. It creates the conditions for adaptation, so you can pursue audacious goals and thrive in uncertainty." - Dr. Erik Korem "Most exercise programs fail, not because the reps and sets are poorly designed, but because the program doesn't adjust for how much stress your body can adapt to that day! That's why Dr. Chris Morris' research and practical application of fluid periodization is the key for unlocking your performance potential." - Dr. Erik KoremSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
