Sleeping in Late and Sleep Loss Effects Your Body Physically

We all know getting up late is the best but is it good for you to sleep in all day? The answer to that question is not exactly. Studies show sleeping increases people’s chances of getting diabetes, heart disease, depression, and obesity. This causes depression because if someone has sleep issues it influences the function of the neurotransmitter serotonin. 

This will cause diabetes because the article Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows, “One in three US adults isn’t getting enough sleep, and over time, this can increase the risk for type 2” which means if an adult has trouble sleeping at night and sleeps in the next day they overtime they can be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. 

Sleeping late and sleep loss can cause heart disease because during normal sleep your blood sugar goes down but if you have heart problems your blood pressure will stay higher for a long period of time. Having higher blood pressure during your sleep can lead to heart disease and stroke. 

This can lead to obesity because losing sleep from going to bed late and waking up late can cause hormone imbalance in your body that can aim to gain weight and overeating.

Overall, sleeping in and sleep loss can affect people’s bodies in many different ways leading up to affecting a person’s whole life.
