Sleep Disorders and Diabetes Might Be Cured In The Near Future

Sleep Disorders and Diabetes Might Be Cured In The Near Future

There has been a major development witnessed in the treatment for diabetes as well as sleep disorders at the same time. The able scientific team has determined a part of the biological clock of the body, which is responsible for telling it when it is time to sleep, and when to eat. This might be able give out a lot more information about the metabolic cycle of the body, and in turn be able to help the ones suffering from diabetes as well as sleep disorders.

This has been revealed according to the research done by a team from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies and it is of the view that cells REV-ERBa and REV-ERBß, which were discovered in an experiment done on mice, are the ones responsible for maintaining the correct eating and sleeping pattern. This in turn tends to affect the metabolism rates of a person and safeguard them from diseases such as diabetes, and sleep disorders. There are many people in the world being diagnosed of Type 1 or 2 diabetes each year. Making these findings might be able to help people in preventing these diseases in the time to come.

Besides this, there is huge population which is affected by sleep disorders of different kinds. If these biological clock parts work in the proper combination with each other, there might soon be a cure found for both of these problems in the time to come.

“This fundamentally changes our knowledge about the workings of the circadian clock and how it orchestrates our sleep-wake cycles, when we eat and even the times our bodies metabolize nutrients”, said Ronald M. Evans, a Professor in Salk’s Gene Expression Laboratory.

There is need for more research and development to be done in this regard to find effective cures for the disorders in the time to come.
