Not getting enough sleep prevents the body from strengthening the immune system and fighting infection. It can also result in an increased risk of new and advanced respiratory diseases.
A lack of sleep can affect body weight. There are two hormones in the body, leptin and ghrelin, these control feelings of hunger and fullness. The levels of these hormones are affected by sleep. Poor sleep patterns cause the release of insulin, which leads to increased fat storage and a higher risk of type 2 diabetes.
Restlessness during the night, tossing and turning, not quite awake but not asleep.
