More than 18 million Americans have diabetes and the most common form is type 2. The body either doesn’t produce enough or becomes resistant to insulin in the bloodstream.
Researchers have shown that disrupting sleep damages the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar levels, hypothetically elevating the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
The scientists found that disrupting the deepest sleep periods of volunteers rapidly resulted in reduction in their ability to regulate blood-sugar levels.
Earlier research has also indicated that lack of sleep can decrease the ability to regulate sugar, and this new research adds evidence that poor sleep quality is also a diabetes risk.
