Treat your insomnia and prevent diabetes?

I've already written about the link between insomnia, diabetes and the melatonin receptor gene.

Now it would appear that taking a daily supplement of melatonin may help protect against diabetes.

Researchers in Boston found that women with low levels of melatonin in their bodies were more than twice as likely to develop type 2 diabetes compared to those with normal melatonin levels.

Melatonin is a sleep hormone that helps control our sleep cycles.

Although I am not a big supporter of melatonin supplements as an insomnia cure, this new study may help change my mind.

It's worth being reminded that melatonin is most effective when used to treat sleep disturbances down to an out-of-synch body clock.

When it comes to treating insomnia, it's not particularly effective as the hormone is primarily a body clock regulator.
