Sleep may reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes in obese teens

A new study suggests getting a good night’s rest can reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes for obese teenagers.

Researchers in Philadelphia looked at more than 60 obese teens and found that those who slept between seven-and-a-half and eight-and-a-half hours a night kept insulin and blood sugar at the optimum level.

Previous studies have shown adults who were deprived of sleep had a higher risk of Type 2 diabetes.
