The chances of getting obese for other age groups were the same too. Sleep regulates the proper release of the hormones needed for causing hunger or feeling fuller. When you are not sleeping well, your level of the hunger causing hormone ghrelin goes up and the level of lepton the hormone responsible for the feeling of being full goes down, that in turn makes you hungry more often and you eat more. Compared to when you sleep well.
Sleep also interferes with the hormone insulin that is needed for the regulation of glucose in your blood.as a result of low response to insulin, blood glucose levels go up, increasing the risk of type 2 diabetes.
Sleeping properly also improves growth and development in teens and children. Sleep induces your body to produce the hormone that works to help growth in children. This hormone is also responsible for cell and tissue repair. Sleep also is required for puberty and fertility.

People who don’t get enough sleep are less creative, take more time to finish work and learn slow. Such individuals are also more likely to cause mistakes. Lack of sleep also can cause micro sleep.
