    According to one study, yes: “The number of white blood cells within the body decreases, as does the activity of the remaining white blood cells. The body also decreases the amount of growth hormone produced. The ability of the body to metabolize sugar declines, turning sugar into fat.” There are a whole host of problems associated with sleep deprivation (lack of sleep), and apparently one is that the body’s ability to breakdown sugars is hindered… in other words, the body’s metabolism is slowed down. 

     

    Wikipedia conforms this fact has been reported by medical studies: “The findings suggest that this might be happening because sleep deprivation could be disrupting hormones that regulate glucose metabolism and appetite.”

      The word Insomnia originated from the Latin word Insomis meaning sleepless. To put it in a better way it is a condition where one is unable to obtain sufficient sleep. For me Insomnia meant feeling stressed, lost, sad and feeling worthless,trouble concentrating,irritability, increased risk of falls and accidents, and lower productivity..
      Better Quality Sleep benefits to our mood, memory and concentration.
