The development on adult onset diabetes – often associated with Type 2 Diabetes – is at the forefront of different people’s minds, considering the alarming rate diabetes’ cases have grown over the years.
With different studies and research geared in the treatment of the condition, various studies and research are also committed in assessing and veering away the onset of diabetes in children and adults, oftentimes announcing results which indicate the impact lifestyle variables have in the development pre diabetes and diabetes cases.
The Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston recently conducted a study, suggesting a link between poor sleeping habits and pre diabetes/type 2 diabetes.

The study’s findings, published in Science Translational Medicine, indicate a lack of sleep connection in the subtle development of diabetes.
All of the study’s subjects developed pre diabetes inclined issues, and blood sugar levels came to be more than normal during the abnormal sleep phase of the study, which included sleeping habit variants, from sleeping during the daytime and limited number of sleeping hours.
The normal sleep phase, which covered 9 days, involved an awake during the day and full night’s sleep at night regimen, and revealed that the subjects’ blood sugar levels and physiological conditions returned to normal.
If you happen to be someone suffering from poor sleeping habits, there’s more reason now for you to clean up your act, as the study suggests a diabetes risk factor involved.
Apart from eating right, eating the right foods at the right amounts, proper sleep is also important, not just in keeping diabetes-free, but also when taking about going about a healthy way of accomplishing day to day tasks, duties and responsibilities.
