Lack of Sleep in Childhood May Raise the Risk of Type 2 Diabetes Later
A new study, executed by the scientists from St. George’s, University of London, UK suggests that there is a link between sleep duration and risk of developing type 2 diabetes in children.
Professor Owen and his team examined 4,525 children of age 9 and 10 years living in the United Kingdom. On average, children slept for 10.5 hours. The analysis of the collected data showed that just one hour of less sleep significantly raised such risk factors of diabetes type 2 as blood sugar and insulin resistance.
Professor Cristopher G. Owen says: “These findings suggest that increasing sleep duration could offer a simple approach to reducing levels of body fat and type 2 diabetes risk from early life […]. Potential benefits associated with increased sleep in childhood may have implications for health in adulthood.”
