The Effects of Sleep Deprivation

How far can a person go without sleep? We can look at Randy Gardner who is a student from California who holds the world record for the longest period a human has gone without sleeping. He was awake for exactly 264 hours and 12 minutes. Within the first days of not sleeping, he began having severe cognitive hallucinations, ravings and psychotic symptoms. After 11 days without sleep, he slept for only 14 hours, which demonstrates there’s no such thing as “recovery sleep.” So what are the Effects of Sleep Deprivation?

Effects of Sleep Deprivation

  • According to the Sleep National Foundation in the United States, cutting sleep to less than 6 hours triples the possibilities of being involved in a car accident due to ocular coordination effects.
  • Sleeping for a few hours is related to chronic diseases like diabetes (Diabetes and Erectile Dysfunction Page). The body’s reaction to not resting properly is similar to the insulin resistance that occurs when diabetes is just beginning. When there’s insulin resistance, sugar levels in the blood spike and may cause organ failure. This can be fatal.
  • Tiredness affects the brain’s ability to process information correctly, and this accumulates throughout the whole day.

  • Premature skin aging is one of the effects of not sleeping properly because the hormone that gives elasticity to the skin and prevents wrinkles, is produced during sleep.

Lack of sleep is also associated with anxiety (Foods for Anxiety Reduction Page), depression, a reduction of libido (Natural Male Libido Boosters! Eat and Get It On! (Part 4) Page), mood swings, a bad temper, and the increased likelihood of many chronic diseases. To stay in optimal physical and mental health (Dr. Elist’s Discussion with Senator Harry Reid About US Health Care Page), and enjoy all your days, the World Health Organization recommends sleeping between 7 and 8 hours a day.
