Inadequate Sleep Appears to Increase Blood Sugar

Less than 8 hours sleep a night was linked to high blood sugar levels (a precursor to diabetes) in a recent study of more than 1200 3-6 year old children. Inadequate sleep appeared to be a risk factor independently of other risk factors such as age, gender, early life feeding, subsequent diet, waist girth, physical activity and body mass.
