Just one week of insufficient sleep alter the activity of our genes, which control our response to stress, immunity, inflammation and overall health. Here are the hidden health hazards caused by sleep deprivation.
Higher levels of anxiety: lack of sleep amplifies the brains anticipatory reactions, raising overall anxiety levels. Higher levels of depression: lack of sleep causes a decrease in neurotransmitters which regulate mood. Higher risk of hypertension: sleeping between 5 and 6 hours a night increases the risk of having high blood pressure. Higher risk of heart disease: when we sleep our blood pressure drops. Not experiencing this nightly drop in pressure is a risk factor for heart disease. Higher risk of stroke: lack of sleep negatively affects cardiovascular health, increasing the risk of restricting blood flow to the brain. Higher risk of diabetes: lack of sleep triggers our stress response, leading to the release of the stress hormones cortisol and norepenephrine, which are associated with insulin resistance - Impaired cognition: excessive sleepiness impairs memory and the ability to think and process information. Disruption of circadian rhythm (natural time clock): leading to poor white blood cell health, which weakens our physical stress. Increased risk of breast cancer: late night exposure to light is being linked to melatonin secretion, which triggers a reduction in estrogen production. Too much estrogen promotes the growth of breast cancer. Unhealthy cravings: sleep helps maintain a healthy balance of the hormones that make you feel hungry (ghrelin) or full (leptin). Lack of sleep causes ghrelin levels to increase and leptin to decrease.
Take sleep at least 6- 8 hours a day to avoid these health risk. Should you have any difficulty sleep, please consult the doctor.
