How sleep deprivation works
Acute lack of sleep apparently affects the function of fat and muscle tissue very quickly.
24 August 2018 – 00:04
Researchers from the University of Uppsala (Sweden) discovered this in experiments with 15 volunteers.
This lack of sleep can play a role in the development of obesity and diabetes is an old observation of epidemiological studies. The Swedish scientists are now looking for effects of sleep deprivation on the tissue. Both subjects underwent samples of fat and muscle tissue under normal sleeping conditions or after a night's sleep.
The result: metabolism changed into inflammatory conditions in both fat and muscle tissue when acute sleep deprivation occurred.
But while sleep deprivation for muscle cells was depleting more, it had a growth-stimulating effect on adipose tissue.
