Supporting the Bladder and Bowel Community
We've teamed up with the Bladder and Bowel Community to build on our continued mission to provide quality sleep solutions for all the family and deliver on a great night's sleep.
A University of Chicago study on sleep deprivation, using student volunteers, found that after sleeping for only 4 hours a night for 6 days, the volunteers had developed higher blood pressure, were producing more stress hormones, and were only producing half the normal amount of antibodies to a flu vaccine. Most worryingly, the group also demonstrated insulin resistance, which forewarns of type 2 diabetes. These changes were reversed once the volunteers had caught up on their missed sleep.
