The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either taking naps or often taking naps, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Diabetes Type II

It was reported in 2010 that a Chinese study of 19,567 people found a correlation between increased napping and increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.  Participants reporting frequent naps (4-6 days per week or daily) were 42% to 52% more likely to have diabetes.
