London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/19/2015 -- Many people are aware that poor sleep routines can be detrimental to our health. However, recent research has indicated a link to specific conditions aggravated by lack of sleep – such as kidney disease. Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital carried out a study which involved 4,200 women and considered sleep alongside their health. Results indicated that those who slept for less than 5 hours a day had a greater risk of developing kidney disease.
Further consideration of the results suggests that for women with poor sleeping habits, 65% saw a decline in kidney function, whilst this was not the case for those women who had a regular 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night. More research is expected to be undertaken, as it is expected that lack of sleep may have similar significant health impacts on men also.
That a lack of sleep is being linked to a decline in major organ function is worrying, and is set to increase public awareness on the importance of having a good night's rest. Sleep is a necessary feature of life, and it is expected that people will be encouraged to treat it with greater regard and more positively – such as through making their bed and bedtime something to look forward to. After all, this could mean the difference between health and illness.
Quick to comment on the issue of sleep and why it is now ever-more important that we make proper consideration of it, was Interior Supply. They are prime providers of a range of luxury beds, as well as other furniture options and a spokesperson had this to say:
"The findings reveal how potentially damaging a lack of good sleep can be. We would urge anyone to take the time to consider their sleep routine more positively, and put measures in place so it is prioritised. Investing in a bed which makes you feel at ease may well be part of this. Sleep is something to make you feel good, and it therefore matters that you have a good environment in which to do it!"
