Who sleeps during the working week is significantly too little, can not eliminate the impact of sleep deficit on the metabolism due to more sleep on the weekends. As a result, the risk for Obesity and Diabetes increases.
In the case of lack of sleep and untreated sleep disorders to an increased risk for metabolic problems, including obesity and Diabetes. This is according to a Current Biology study published by extra sleep on the weekend to compensate. Kenneth Wright of the University of Colorado Boulder says: "The main message of this study is that additional sleep on the weekends is not an effective countermeasure to sleep loss-induced metabolic reverse faults." Participants from two groups that had either permanently or during a work week, accumulated a sleep deficit, ate after dinner, between meals and gained weight more than people in a group with a regular and sufficient sleep. A permanent sleep deficit also reduced insulin sensitivity by about 13 percent. The group, which could be on weekends, more sleep, also showed a reduced sensitivity to Insulin after they had returned to the short nights. "Of recovery sleep on the weekends is not an effective counter-measure in terms of metabolic health, when sleep loss ist" chronic;, Christopher depner, management, who led the study together with Wright concludes. The researchers had classified the healthy young adults in three groups: The first group slept for nine nights of nine hours each. In the second group, only five hours sleep per night. The participants of the third group followed an exchange between five times five hours, followed by a weekend where you could sleep at will, and a further two nights, with five hours of sleep.
The Sleep Research Society and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommend that adults at least 7 hours of sleep per night.
