IN THE NEWS 64 @dayspamagazine • Januar y 2019 DRY SPELL A study published in the journal SLEEP has found that adults who get a mere six hours of sleep per night, as opposed to eight, have signifi cantly higher odds of being dehydrated. To determine this, researchers focused on the hormonal system that regulates hydration in the body. "Vasopressin is released both more quickly and later on in the sleep cycle," says lead author Asher Rosinger, assistant professor of biobehavioral health at Pennsylvania State University. "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." Of course, dehydration negatively affects many of the body's systems and functions, including cognition, mood and physical per formance, and long-term or chronic dehydration can lead to more serious problems, such as higher risk of urinary tract infections and kidney stones. "This study suggests that if you're not getting enough sleep, and you feel bad or tired the next day, drink extra water," Rosinger concludes.
