Diabetics Should Avoid Late Nights
World Diabetes Day on 14th November
Young adults who do not get enough deep sleep may be increasing their risk of type 2 diabetes, according to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, said Padma Shri & Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India.
Failing to sleep deeply for just three nights has the same negative effect on the body's ability to manage insulin as gaining 20 to 30 pounds.
Three nights of interrupted sleep effectively gives people in their 20s the glucose and insulin metabolisms of people three times their age.
Improving the quality of sleep, especially for people as they age or if they are obese, can be an important step in preventing the onset of type 2 diabetes.
