Sleep deprivation is directly linked with Cardio metabolic Risk in Obsessed Adolescents
University of Michigan Health System news has released a report that says obesity and sleep deprivation have been connected to metabolic and cardiovascular diseases in both adults and children, but petite is recognized about such connections in adolescents.
The news release concluded "This shows that even among those already considered at risk for cardio metabolic disease, in this case obese teens' decreased sleep duration was predictive of increased cardio metabolic risk. The study cannot determine whether lack of sleep causes cardio metabolic disease or if obesity, or other factors cause sleep disturbances,"
Lead author Heidi IglayReger, Ph.D., supervisor of the Physical Activity Laboratory at the Michigan Metabolomics and Obesity Center, said in the news release "However, the strong association between sleep duration and cardio metabolic risk score independent of the effects of body composition and physical activity suggest a potential influence of sleep duration on cardio metabolic health in obese adolescents,".
