Is there any difference to ones health outcome if they wake up at night and go to sleep when the sun rises up?

To be more specific, what will happen to a person if the sleep cycle is reversed?

    Do you mean SWSD? – JMP Feb 6 '20 at 13:41
  • One outcome that I can think of would be Vitamin D deficiency, as the person would presumably be getting very little exposure to sunlight. This probably could be managed though with suplements, and/or artificial UV lights etc. – user1751825 Feb 6 '20 at 23:22
  • @JMP I don't think OP had a particular condition in mind but it seems like SWSD would make a good component to an answer. – Bryan Krause Feb 7 '20 at 0:08
