Sleep Loss Linked To Less Gut Bacteria

Many know that sleep loss can cause weight gain, but do we know why? Swedish scientists at Uppsala University suggest lack of sleep may reduce bacteria in the gut. Changes in the microbiota have been associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes. Now we know that chronic sleep loss may affect the gut as well. After sleep loss, the participants were also 20 percent less sensitive to the effects of insulin, a hormone that malfunctions in people with diabetes. More research will be done with lack of sleep and gut flora.
