According to latest studies, Little sleep at a young age can lead to multiple sclerosis. It is one of the conclusions of a report published by the Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery & Psychiatry.
The researchers point out that insufficient or interrupted sleep during this key stage of life could translate into a greater probability of suffering immune system disorders, such as multiple sclerosis.
Why we can develop multiple sclerosis if we sleep less in adolescence
Scientists recommend getting six to eight hours of sleep a day, cutting out any potential distractions. This, especially considering that young people are usually more exposed than anyone else to technology.
The relationship between multiple sclerosis and good sleep quality in adolescence is explained by several factors that act as triggers for immune disorders, such as being overweight and bad habits.
Adolescents who sleep little, or poorly, have certain tendency to gain weight and consume alcohol and tobacco. They are factors that cause multiple sclerosis, or that lay the foundations for this disease to develop.
Study or work at night, a bad idea
But smartphones are not the only enemies that young people have to deal with, they must also do everything in their power to carry out their activities during the day, and not at night.
Sleep disturbances, very common in those who study or work at night, are highly detrimental to the body and increase the chances of developing immune disorders later on.
Doctors discovered these undesirable consequences of poor or poor sleep by analyzing Swedish citizens between the ages of 16 and 70, cAs part of the Epidemiological Investigation of Multiple Sclerosis -EIMS-.
They noted that people who reported having slept fitfully during their teens had higher rates of vulnerability to multiple sclerosis and other problems.
While they continue to study reverse causality, that is, that neuronal problems will make sleep difficult, lThe signs regarding the relationship between little or poor quality sleep and nervous disorders are there.
Added to that, the authors state that “the availability of technology and anytime Internet access contribute to insufficient sleep among adolescents and represent a barrier.”
The essential thing is to be able to rest more hours, especially during adolescence because you have to rest much more.
