5 Things Everyone Knows About Sleep Deprivation That You Don't






Getting a good night’s sleep is essential to stay active and lead a healthy life. You may experience health issues if you are sleep deprived. Listed below are three things you must know about sleep loss.

Risk of Type 2 Diabetes


According to a study published in The American Academy of Sleep Medicine, your metabolic function may get affected if you get exposed to light during sleep at night.  Even a single night of light exposure affects your insulin resistance- a precursor to Type 2 diabetes.

Risk of Alzheimer's disease


According to National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism losing even one night of sleep leads to an immediate increase in beta-amyloid. It is a protein in the brain linked to Alzheimer’s disease. The beta-amyloid proteins clump together to form amyloid plaques. These plaques are a hallmark of the disease.

Risk of Accidents


A research study says that sleep loss either due to sleep apnea or sleep deficiency is linked to motor vehicle accidents. The researchers say that chronically sleep-deprived people don’t consider themselves sleep impaired. This results in an increased risk of motor vehicle crashes.

Moreover, it helps you to enter into a peaceful sleep. The octagonal is present in the thin whiteish layer on the surface of sugarcane.

Consume fish for better sleep


The University of Pennsylvania researchers found that regular fish consumption not only improves cognition but also sleep. The researchers found that children who consume fish at least once a week sleep better and have high IQ by an average of 4 points.
