Lack of Sleep Increases Blood Sugar

Lack of Sleep Increases Blood Sugar


A  study shows that individuals who sleep on average less than 6 hours per night have a five fold increased risk for developing abnormally high blood sugar, knocking on the type II diabetes door.

A lack of sleep is associated with obesity and disturbed leptin function.  It also increases overall inflammation due to a lack of time to repair, in turn slowing down metabolism.  Burning the candle at both ends is no way to be healthy.  If you have to short something, make sure it is not your sleep.
