Poor and insufficient sleep favors the onset of diabetes

Poor and insufficient sleep favors the onset of diabetes

If you do not have diabetes, it is good to get enough sleep to avoid it. Among the many diseases that can be developed or acquired as a result of insomnia and sleep apnea, diabetes is one of the most characterized. If you already have the disease, it is recommended that you also worry about what happens on your nights. Little sleep is bad in many ways, but it can complicate your diabetes symptoms considerably.

Diabetes is characterized by abnormal increase in blood sugar. Source of energy for the body, glucose is good in the correct amount, but it causes problems when it is in excess. Diabetes can lead to heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure, among other problems.

And what does all this have to do with sleep? A study by the University of Chicago in the United States showed that people who sleep less have higher amounts of glucose in their blood. In addition, the level of the hormone insulin, which is responsible for the reduction of the glycemia rate, is below normal.

The head of Medicine and Sleep Biology of Unifesp (Federal University of São Paulo) and physician of the Institute of sleep, Lia Rita Azeredo Bittencourt, confirms the Chicago scientists' thesis and adds information.

"Sleep deprivation promotes increased stress and this leads to resistance to insulin action and increased glucose," he says.

That is, the person who sleeps little not only increases blood glucose levels but also decreases the effect of the hormone responsible in balancing this characteristic within the blood vessels. All of this occurs because of the stress involved in poor sleep.

Anyone who suffers from insomnia or wakes up a lot at night because of any sleep disorder tends to become more stressed and moody, especially on the day of the problem. This nervousness diminishes the action of insulin and, added to the fact that the glucose increase, proven by the University of Chicago researchers, can lead to greater complications.
