What Happens to your Body During Sleep Deprivation?

By: Leonard Garrett

Millions of adults are affected by sleep deprivation each day and the numbers are ever increasing. Your body's function is severely limited with sleep deprivation. You cannot concentrate, your body feels bad, you have memory shortage and your muscles hurt.

When your body does not get enough sleep you cannot function effectively. Your body goes through several changes. Some changes include:

. The brain not getting enough rest which affects the frontal cortex and causes it not to function properly.

. The body does not provide enough energy to perform tasks.

. Movement is weakened and limited.

. The body cannot metabolize glucose correctly therefore early signs of diabetes occur.

All of these symptoms and effects can go away if the body begins to get enough rest. However if the body continues to go without rest it weakens and it is put at risk and in physical danger.

People with sleep deprivation should not feel like one or two days of rest will solve the problem. It will not. The body has to have continuous ongoing rest for it to function properly on a daily basis.
