Could Catching Up on Sleep Lower Your Diabetes Risk?

TUESDAY, June 18 (HealthDay News) — Catching up on your sleep on weekends may help protect you from developing diabetes, a small, early study suggests.

The study found significant improvements in insulin sensitivity — the body’s ability to clear sugar from the blood — among sleep-deprived men after they had three nights of extra sleep.

“We all know we need to get adequate sleep, but that is often impossible because of work demands and busy lifestyles,” Dr. Peter Liu, a researcher at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute, said in an institute news release.

“Our study found extending the hours of sleep can improve the body’s use of insulin, thereby reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes in adult men,” Liu said. “Reducing the incidence of this chronic illness is critical for a nation where diabetes affects nearly 26 million people and costs an estimated $174 billion annually.”
