A New Study Suggests That a Good Night’s Sleep Could Help Control Blood Sugar
Scientists have found that slow waves of electrical activity in the brain during the deepest stage of sleep could serve as early warning signs of diabetes. The study suggests that quality sleep may help control high blood sugar, with slow waves and spindles during sleep linked to lower fasting glucose levels and higher insulin sensitivity the next day. While the study does not suggest that improving sleep could prevent diabetes, it provides insights for clinicians to potentially use brain waves as a marker for early signs of poor diabetes control.
Astronomers Have Found a Giant Planet That Reveals Fascinating Secrets
Astronomers have discovered a giant planet, named LHS-3154b, orbiting a tiny red dwarf star, challenging previous simulations that suggested small stars couldn't accumulate enough material to form such large planets. The star, about a tenth the mass of the Sun, should theoretically have a limited amount of dust and material to form planets, but LHS-3154b is nearly as massive as Neptune. The discovery prompts scientists to reevaluate their understanding of planet formation around small stars, considering factors like earlier planet growth or hidden dust.
