Sleep and Obesity Linked, Says Research

As per a recent research, it has been revealed that sleep is vital for proper functioning of body. A lot of things are dependent on proper sleep, and if one is not getting the needed sleep, he can face a lot of problems.

Some of the many problems he can face are appetite regulation, impair glucose metabolism, and high blood pressure and risk of cardiovascular disease. Dr. Kristen Knutson, from the University of Chicago, said, "Obesity develops when energy intake is greater than expenditure. Diet and physical activity play an important part in this, but an additional factor may be inadequate sleep”.

Kirsten said that it is not the first time when it has been established that proper sleep is needed for proper functioning of a body. Some of the studies done on the same subject were of the view poor quality sleep is linked to increased risk of obesity. It happens as a person feels some kind of stress when he is not able to sleep and takes out that frustration by eating junk food at odd hours.

Kirsten said that in the US, some 185 of youth are not able to get much needed six hours of sleep. This means that 53 million youth are at the risk of developing obesity. The study researchers said that they have assessed brain signals which control appetite regulation.

After assessing them, it has been found that if one does not get proper amount of sleep then he tends to eat more and it makes him gain weight. Experts said that the recent study is based on the results of Western countries, so it is suggested that a wider study should be conducted, which should have people from different communities.
