Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as frequency of napping — that affect you. Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.
How often do you take a nap outside of normal sleeping hours?
Possible responses:→ Never / don't know
→ Once a month or less
→ Once a week or less
→ A few times per week
→ Daily or almost daily
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.
