New study links diabetes risk to reduced sleep

(NBC NEWS) - Children who don't get enough sleep may have a higher risk of diabetes.

That's according to a new British study of over 4,000, 9 and 10-year-olds.

Researchers found kids who slept just one hour less a night weighed more and had higher levels of blood glucose and insulin resistance.

They estimate increasing sleep time by just a half hour could lower the risk of type two diabetes later in life.
