Napping for more than an hour during the day could be a warning sign for type-2 diabetes, Japanese researchers suggest
Their research found there was a link between long daytime naps of more than 60 minutes and a 45% increased risk of type-2 diabetes, compared with no daytime napping – but there was no link with naps of less than 40 minutes
The researchers said long naps could be a result of disturbed sleep at night, potentially caused by sleep apnoea
And this sleeping disorder could increase the risk of heart attacks, stroke, cardiovascular problems and other metabolic disorders, including type-2 diabetes
This could include slightly high sugar levels, meaning napping may be an early warning sign of diabetes,” he said
