Yes: Plenty of studies have already been done to support the fact that getting less than six hours of sleep a night increases the risk of weight gain and diabetes and that getting more than nine or 10 hours of sleep a night can do the same. The optimum would be somewhere between seven and nine hours sleep for an adult.
