Lack of sleep may increase risk for diabetes

Staying up late and not getting seven hours of sleep puts one at high risk of becoming a Type-II diabetic, a disease once believed to be caused primarily by being overweight.

Adults who get less than the recommended amount of sleep may not have adequate control of normal sugar levels. Sleeplessness causes insulin-producing cells to stop working properly, elevating the glucose levels and leaving one wide open to diabetes.

Diabetes might have several reasons, but by having a proper sleep one can at least avoid one of the prime reason behind the occurrence. © 2014 - All videos published on MedVideos are the property of their respective authors or publisher.
