Chronic sleep loss can reduce the capacity of even young adults to perform basic metabolic functions, such as processing and storing carbohydrates or regulating hormone secretion, report researchers from the University’s medical center in a recent issue of The Lancet. In this study, the researchers investigated the relationship of full sleep duration and the development of metabolic syndrome in the long-term. On one occasion, the men were allowed to sleep normally, spending 8.5 hours in bed for four nights. The subjects were 63 type-2 DM inpatients (M/F, 32/31; age, 57.5±13.1) without taking any sleeping promoting drug and chronic kidney disease. “While previous studies have shown that short sleep duration is associated with obesity and diabetes, we found that as little as 30 minutes a day sleep debt can have significant effects on obesity and insulin resistance at follow-up,” says lead study author Prof. After at least four weeks, they spent another four nights in the sleep lab and were tasked with getting 4.5 hours of sleep each night. The body will stop itself in its tracks, for most people, if you don’t get enough sleep.
There is merely a bound of stress that the body can lever,” told counselor Nilam. Though loss of sleep has become common in the modern society, the metabolic consequences of sleep deprivation are realized only for over a decade now, said the researcher. In fact, two recent international studies have linked diabetes and obesity to sleep disorders. Coronary diseases are often linked to inflammation. Chronic inflammation is the long term inflammation that can result asthma, Ulcer, Tuberculosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic periodontitis, Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, sinusitis, hepatitis and heart problems and as well as cancer. 4) Move your bed: You have evolved to feel safe when you can spot danger early and have time to run away, and so will feel most relaxed when your bed faces the door and is furthest from it.
