Diabetes Risk Pronounced With Too Much or Too Little Sleep

There is a whole lot of truth in saying that the key to good health is the magic word’ ‘moderation’ Too much or too less of anything is bad for health//. New England Research Institutes in collaboration with Yale School of Medicine researchers, commenting upon Optimum Sleep requirement, say that Men who sleep too much or too little can easily become victims of Type 2 diabetes.

The statistics printed in the March issue of Diabetes Care were obtained from 1,709 men, 40 to 70 years old. Massachusetts Male Aging Study registered these men, and they were tracked for 15 years with personal visits to their homes, health questionnaire and blood samples.

It was observed that six to eight hours of sleep was found, to contribute to optimum health, as compared to men who said that they slept only five to six hours per night, Such sleep deprived men, stood three times the chance of developing diabetes, according to the lead author, H. Klar Yaggi, M.D., professor in Yale's Department of Internal Medicine, pulmonary section. Women are also prone to similar risks.

Yaggi said "These elevated risks remained after adjustment for age, hypertension, smoking status, self-rated health status and education. There is a lot of interest in determining whether sleep disturbances such as a reduced amount of sleep or disorders like sleep apnea may actually worsen the metabolic syndrome.”

Metabolic syndrome manifests itself as a combined group of factors enhancing risk of high blood pressure, obesity, high cholesterol and insulin resistance which may lead to heart disease and stroke
