Does Napping Increase Type 2 Diabetes Risk?
By Mike Boyle

In its March issue, the journal Sleep has published the results of a study that recently took place in China suggesting that older adults who take naps on a regular basis have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The study, which encompassed over 19,500 individuals between the ages of 50 and 93, found that the prevalence of type 2 diabetes was 36% higher in participants who reported napping four to six times a week and 28% higher in those who napped daily.
