Some argue that the amount of physical activity, poor diet and BMI are already risks for diabetes, yet sleeping more puts them at even a higher risk. Some scientists argue that sleeping longer may be a symptom of a sleeping disorder, depression or bad health, and these factors don’t put them at risk for diabetes. The fact is that sleeping too much does put you at risk for other medical problems, such as:
- Back pain
- Heart Disease
There is a reason you need sleep and that’s because when you sleep your body is able to recharge for the next day. Sleep helps you fight weight-gain, improves your decision making abilities, decreases your anxiety, refreshes your immune system, stabilizes your blood sugar and lowers your risk of disease.
