Has anyone else heard this? I was watching late night TV this week and heard it and it made sense to me. It was telling how long term sleep deprivation, (you know, similar or exactly like what we folks with fibro and CFS struggle with so often that it is a way of life for us?)may lead to eventual hypothyroidism and Type 2 diabetes. Okay, as for me, Fibro-check, CFS- check, never slept normally in my life except for while anesthestized for surgery-check...diabetes-check, undergoing bloodwork next week for suspected hypothyroidism-check. So what has everyone else experienced? I can definitely see the possibilities, heck, I already live with one of the realities. If we do not sleep properly, I imagine it opens our entire systems up to any and all forms of malfunctions with time. What say y'all?
