The researchers observed that the people who take slept fewer than six hours a night throughout the week had greater tendency to generate damaged fasting glucose than those who took sleep for more than six hours. The results support the emerging evidence of the connection between insufficient sleep and bad health issues.

One of the researchers linked the finding with hormones and nervous system. Though sleep specialists are of the view that lack of sufficient sleep may bring about adverse health conditions like diabetes, they are unable to justify the exact reasons behind this problem. There is possibility that lack of sleep increased the risk of obesity which leads towards diabetes.

He hoped the new research would provoke further studies in this complicated field of sleeping and health issues.
