According to a recent study, adults who sleep just six hours per night – as opposed to eight – may have a higher chance of being dehydrated.

These findings suggest that those who do not feel well after a Night of poor sleep may want to consider dehydration as a cause, and drink more water. Results of the study are published in the journal SLEEP.

Researchers looked at how sleep affected hydration status and risk of dehydration in the US and Chinese adults. In begge populations, voksne som rapporterade at sove seks timer, havde væsentligt mere koncentreret urin og 16-59 procent højere odds for at være utilstrækkeligt hydreret sammenlignet med voksne som sov otte timer regelmæssigt på natten.

way the body‘s hormonal system regulates hydration.

A hormone called vasopressin is released to help regulate the body’s hydration status.

“Vasopressin er släppt både hurtigere og senere i tobakscyklusen,” siger leadforfatter Asher Rosinger. . “So, if you’re waking up earlier, you might miss that window in which more of the hormone is released, causing a disruption in the body’s hydration.”

Dehydration negatively affects many of the body’s systems and functions, including cognition , mood, physical performance, and others. Long-term or chronic dehydration can lead to more serious problems, such as higher risk of urinary tract infections and kidney stones.
