According to one researcher, Els van der Helm, who was also quoted in ninemsn.com, during REM sleep is turned back on, and put into perspective and integrated into the brain.

In that study also added that healthy people generally spend 20 percent of their sleeping hours in Rapid-eye movement, where the problems associated with high emotional level will be processed and reduced subjective emotional in the next day.

Researchers from New York found that people who sleep less than 6 hours a night diebetes higher risk than those who slept longer.

They said the study supported mounting evidence that reducing the amount of sleep can have a serious impact on health. The study, conducted over 6 years was presented in the American Heart Association conference.

Cases of type 2 diabetes, which is often associated with obesity is increasing throughout the world. This is because the body produces too much insulin, but did not use the hormone efficiently to break down sugar in the blood.

Stumbling block in the diagnosed condition known as impaired fasting glucose levels is weak, in which blood sugar levels are too high but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.

A team from the University of Buffalo, New York, followed a group of volunteers for 6 years. They found that people who slept an average of less than 6 hours a night during the working day has the possibility of 4.56 times more likely to have impaired fasting glucose levels weaker than those who slept 6-8 hours a night.

Lead researcher Dr. Lisa Rafalson said: “This study supports growing evidence of the association of inadequate sleep with adverse health issues.”

Area of ​​complex

According Rafalson, this relationship is based on hormones and the nervous system. “Our findings will hopefully spur additional research into the complex area of ​​sleep and illness,” he said.

Dr Neil Stanley, sleep expert from Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital said there is some evidence linking sleep deprivation with conditions like diabetes. However, he said the reasons are still unclear, although it is likely that sleep deprivation increases risk of weight gain, which in turn could increase the risk of diabetes.

“There is evidence that sleep deprivation invite appetite hormones, so you always want to eat, and eat the wrong foods, when we are tired we tend to crave sugary foods.”

Good night’s sleep, according to Stanley, is a biological necessity. “The body you want and need to sleep soundly every night, and if you get enough rest, you will be more active during the day.”
