Why Is Sleep So Important?

This Sparked Me!

Sleep-deprived people eat more.High blood glucose can wake you up to urinate, while low blood glucose can wake you with hunger. People with diabetes are more likely to have sleep apnea and the loss of zzz's can undermine blood sugar control. Poor sleep may cause diabetes or worsen it if you have been diagnosed with diabetes. Most sleep deprived people reach for high carb foods when they should in fact eat fruits and veggies. Not enough sleep causes depression.

To help you sleep eat turkey, 1/2 banana, or have a cup of camomile tea.
