A study which looked at men and women’s sleep duration and its relation to glucose metabolism found that the men who slept the longest and the least were the ones whose bodies were less able to process sugar. These two groups of men had the highest blood sugar levels compared to the average sleep group who typically slept for 7 hours a night.

Interestingly sleep didn’t affect womens’ abilty to process sugar negatively! Women who slept less or longer than the average, demonstrated an increased response to insulin and the beta cells in the pancreas worked better!

Therefore according to this study of nearly 800 healthy people ranging from ages 30 to 60 and picked from 14 European countries, men are at a higher risk of developing diabetes if they sleep more or less than the average, whereas in women it the opposite was true. Watch your sleep guys!
