London: Here`s an advice for obese teenagers -- if you want to reduce the risk of developing diabetes, make sure that you get eight-and-a-half hours of sleep daily, says a new study.Researchers have carried out the study of 62 teenagers and found that sleeping for between seven-and-a-half and eight -and-a-half hours a night kept insulin and blood sugar at the optimum level.Spending less or more time in bed increased the chance of raised glucose levels, while a lower amount of deep sleep caused insulin levels to drop, according to research published in the `Diabetes Care` journal.The teenagers in the study were monitored over one and a half days, during which their blood sugar levels were tested and their sleep patterns were analysed by the researchers.The findings mean that a healthy sleeping pattern could help to ward off the onset of diabetes in the patients, all of whom were obese, researchers from the Children`s Hospital of Philadelphia said.
