People with sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy sleep behaviors may develop fatty liver disease, according to a new study published in the Journal of the Endocrine Society. Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.
Fatty liver disease is a major chronic liver disease worldwide, affecting approximately one-quarter of the adult population. This type of liver disease is caused by metabolic disorders such as obesity and type 2 diabetes. Fatty liver disease can progress to end-stage liver disease and poses a significant health and economic burden to society.
“People who sleep lightly at night and take long naps during the day are at the highest risk of developing fatty liver disease,” said Dr. Yang Liu of the Guangdong Key Research Institute of Food, Nutrition and Health and Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou. Ta. , China. “Our study found that modest improvements in sleep quality were associated with a 29% reduction in the risk of fatty liver disease.”
Researchers analyzed the self-reported sleep behavior of 5,011 Chinese adults with fatty liver disease and found that late bedtimes, snoring, and daytime naps of more than 30 minutes were significantly associated with increased risk of fatty liver disease. I discovered that. Moderate improvements in sleep quality reduced the risk of fatty liver disease by 29%. People with sedentary lifestyles and central obesity experienced more pronounced negative effects of poor sleep quality than others.
“Our study provides evidence that even modest improvements in sleep quality are sufficient to reduce the risk of fatty liver disease, especially in people with unhealthy lifestyles,” Liu said. Stated. “Given that a large proportion of subjects suffering from poor sleep quality are underdiagnosed and undertreated, our study provides further insight into this area and strategies to improve sleep quality.” Research is needed.”
