Welcome to another HealthNews Tutorial news releasebrought to you by HealthNews. In today's news, research shows daytimesleepiness and taking long naps during the day are both associated with an increasedrisk of type 2 diabetes. Excessive daytime sleepiness was found toincrease the risk of diabetes by 56%, while a longer daytime nap of 60 minutes or moreincreased the risk by 46%. In contrast, a shorter nap (60 minutes or less per day) didnot increase the risk of diabetes. The analysis showed there was no effect of napping up toabout 40 minutes per day, after which risk began to increase sharply.

Excessive daytime sleepiness and taking longernaps were associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes, though taking a short napdoes not increase this risk. Daytime napping might be a consequence of nighttime sleepdisturbance such as obstructive sleep apnea, which is independently linked to blockagesof heart arteries, stroke, fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events, and allcause mortality.Several studies have demonstrated the beneficial effects of taking short naps less than 30minutes in duration, which help to increase alertness and motor skills. A longer nap canresult in a phenomenon known as sleep inertia, in which a person feels groggy, disoriented,and even sleepier than before napping. This

may explain why longer naps increase the riskof type 2 diabetes while shorter naps do not. Remember: naps and daytime sleepiness canbe linked to type 2 diabetes.
