Study: Scientists find link between long naps and diabetes


LONG DAYTIME NAPS MAY MAKE YOU FEEL MORE RESTED … BUT THEY MAY BE LINKED TO DIABETES. JAPANESE RESEARCHERS FOUND NAPPING FOR AN HOUR OR MORE A DAY WAS ASSOCIATED WITH A 45-PERCENT HIGHER RISK OF TYPE TWO DIABETES COMPARED TO NON-NAPPERS. EXPERTS SAY THE REASONS FOR THIS LINK IS UNCLEAR … AND THESE FINDINGS DO NOT MEAN NAPPING CAUSES DIABETES. IT COULD BE THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE NAPPING ARE NOT GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP AT NIGHT — WHICH CAN LEAD TO AN INCREASED APPETITE – INCREASING THE DIABETES RISK.
