by , 08 October 2014

The less you sleep, the worse off your health, says WebMD.com. And they're not even talking about the effects of alcohol…

Not only is your partying and staying up all night preventing your body from using sleep time to repair itself, it puts your entire body in a state of stress.

Get enough sleep or you’ll suffer the consequences, warn experts

A study performed by researchers at the University of Chicago found that sleep deprivation is a huge risk factor for type 2 diabetes.
They noticed that even small amounts of sleep depravation lead to:
·         Changes in the participants’ body’s ability to use sugar;
·         Changes in their hormone levels, in particular, insulin; and
·         A change in their body’s fight and flight response, which is also to do with hormonal changes and sugar use.
They found participants had significantly higher fasting blood sugar levels when they didn’t sleep enough. It’s one of the most significant aspects doctors look for when they diagnose diabetes.
Having high blood sugar for a long time means your cells don’t use the sugar as they should. If you leave the damage to run its course, you become a type 2 diabetic and you whole health comes crashing down around you.
So while it’s difficult to undo the damage you cause your body, there’s a way to prevent it form happening in the first place.
All you have to do is make sure you get enough sleep, every night!
Here’s how…

Use these three tips to make sure you get enough sleep so you don’t end up with type 2 diabetes

Tip #1: Get at least seven hours sleep every night
It’s not to say you can’t go out and enjoy yourself until all hours of the morning! Just make sure you get enough sleep afterwards to give your body the break it needs to sort itself out again, keep your hormones in check and prevent type 2 diabetes.
Tip #2: Sleep when you have the chance
If you’re a night owl who thinks you can function on less than seven hours a night, beware of the long term effects on your body and how it’s increasing your diabetes risk.
You might think it’s going to be hard to break your current habit, but it’s worth the effort. Simply start going to bed at the same time every night and wake up seven hours later no matter what. As long as you start training your body to sleep, it’ll start coming naturally in no time.
Tip #3: Listen to your body
Sure, it’s not always possible to take a nap when you’re tired, but when you have the chance – like on a weekend – and your body’s tired, take a short nap.
Even sleeping for 20 minutes is enough to power up your system and leave you forging ahead with whatever it is you have planned for the rest of the day.
So, ask yourself this: Are youthful late nights and bragging about being able to function on small amounts of sleep really worth the risk of developing type 2 diabetes?
