Too little sleep affects secretion of cortisol , the hormone that regulates appetite. If you lose sleep, you're likely to feel hungrier even when you're well fed. Lack of sleep is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. People who average only 4 hours of sleep demostrate the same effects on glucose resistance as seen in aging. Trying to do too much each day and worrying through the night, can cause sleep deprivation. Eight hours is recommended per night but one-third of us get less than 7 hours of sleep a night.

Thank you for dropping in Thinkofthefat. It was on BE regarding my daughter that died. I was commenting to sad mom, how I too lost a child.
