How do sleep troubles impact metabolic health? New research suggests that troubled sleep may increase the risk for type 2 diabetes. 

Study Summary

This research, which included more than 1000 adults, found that: 

  • Those with troubled sleep had similar profiles to those with a high risk of type 2 diabetes - including a higher likelihood of a high BMI, poor cholesterol and inflammation. 

The Hearty Take 

Sleep health is a critical pillar of health. It is not surprising that troubled sleep may increase the likelihood of risk factors for poor metabolic health and type 2 diabetes. Prioritize 7-8 hours of sleep per night, uninterrupted by technology and harmful light exposure.
