A new study shows that people who stay up late, snore and nap for prolonged periods of time are at highest risk of developping fatty liver disease. This is alarming as it has also been noted that those who suffer with poor sleep quality are often underdiagnosed and undertreated.
Fatty liver disease is the leading chronic liver disease worldwide, affecting about a quarter of the adult population. This type of liver disease is fueled by metabolic disorders such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.
However, there is some good news! The results of the study did show evidence that even a moderate improvement in sleep quality is sufficient to reduce the risk for fatty liver disease, especially in those with unhealthy lifestyles.
