Lack of sleep in children increases the risk of developing diabetes

Children who in varying degrees lack of sleep, demonstrated a greater tendency towards type II diabetes than their peers who sleep more.

Scientists prefer to explain this by the fact that every sixty minutes of additional sleep at night will lead to muscle growth, decrease weight and decrease in the level of glucose in the blood cells.

Participants in a recent experiment began, four thousand five hundred twenty-five children, whose age ranged from nine to ten years. The volunteers were asked to answer a number associated with the regime of their sleep issues. In addition, experts careful analysis of the results of some tests to determine the presence of factors that may increase the risk of diabetes.

Sleep duration of young volunteers program throughout the academic year ranged from eight to twelve hours, and averaged ten and a half hours.

The result was that kids who slept less than others were lowering the sensitivity to insulin.

In addition, these children more often showed the presence of excess body weight. This allowed us to make an unambiguous conclusion that insufficiently long sleep in a very direct way to increase the likelihood of developing diabetes of the second type.
