To Short Sleepers

To all the short sleepers, better be cautious! One previous post revealing that individuals who sleep for less than 6 hours a day, might develop hazardous complications such as high blood pressure, various kind of heart diseases and many many more. This time, we have another piece of information which we might think it would raise the curiosity of many people.

An amazing research, found that short sleepers (who sleep less than 6 hours a night) not only have higher risks in getting heart diseases and other complications like stroke, they also expose themselves to Type II Diabetes. A correlation between Type II Diabetes and lack of sleep is now proved to exist in the medical field.

According to Dr. Stranges, a lead author at Warwick Medical School, the onset of such phenomenon concerns with a pre-diabetic state, which is known as incident-impaired fasting glycaemia (IFG). IFG is a phenomenon where an individual is unable to regulate his or her blood glucose effectively, as a result, this will slowly lead to Type II Diabetes. Consequently, other infamous aftermaths, such as various metabolic syndromes.

An experiment which was conducted in Warwick Medical School showed that participants (all participants were in the range of 35 to 79 years old) who slept less than six hours a night appeared to have three-fold of risks in getting Type II Diabetes as they also increased the likelihood of developing IFG, compare to those who sleep six to eight hours a night. With a three-fold increase in encountering such phenomenon, it is considered a very significant dangerous situation to those who sleep less than six hours a night.
