New research has showed that an unhealthy amount of sleep can increase diabetes risk by up to 60%. Unhealthy sleep has been linked to several other health risks such as Alzheimer’s but now it is being linked to diabetes as well.

Those who do not get enough sleep are at risk for developing diabetes in the future. A study was taken with 84,404 adult participants. The study showed that those who did not get enough sleep were at risk for diabetes.

The results showed that those who slept for 5 hours or less had a 58% increase in diabetes risk. Not only does it increase diabetes risk, not getting enough sleep increases risk for obesity. The researchers noted that who regularly got just five hours of sleep at night were 48% more likely to become obese.
