Study links irregular sleep patterns to metabolic disorders
  • A study published in the journal Diabetes Care investigated the relationship between sleep regularity and metabolic disorders in a group of 2003 participants over 6 years.
  • According to the research, people with greater differences in sleep time and in the periods they slept had a higher occurrence of metabolic abnormalities.
  • On the other hand, the study indicates that maintaining an ordered sleep program is beneficial for metabolism in general.
  • The results coincide with previous studies that indicate that insufficient and irregular sleep implies an increased risk of diabetes, obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol, and other metabolic problems.
