Diabetes Increase Linked to Long Naps Released by Health News Wires

Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 04, 2013

A new report and video from Health News Wires titled Diabetes Increase Linked to Long Naps reveals that diabetes risk may increase with long naps.

New findings have revealed that individuals who nap for long periods are at greater threat for diabetes, indicating that naps of various duration impact the body in different ways.

Men and women were classified into categories based on their length of naps, ranging from no naps to naps lasting longer than an hour. Over 66% of the participants napped on a regular basis. Increased periods of napping were related to a raised risk for high blood sugar and diabetes, individuals that took “cat naps” of under 30 minutes, often had reduced blood glucose.

Diabetes is group of metabolic illness where the individual has high blood glucose due to the fact that the physical body does not create sufficient amounts of the hormone insulin to get rid of excess sugar from the blood, the cells may have ended up being insusceptible to the hormone insulin. This condition often results in insulin resistance and can contribute to metabolic syndrome..

Previous research has suggested a connection between diabetes and duration of sleep. It is feasible that sleeping in the day, too, interrupts the internal clock that moderates the daily pattern of the body’s processes, including the production and release of insulin, whereas short naps do not cause the same result.

“Diabetes and blood sugar are affected by almost everything, including the amount of time one naps. Learning how to manage blood sugar is vital to good health,” said Michael Healey of Health News Wires
