DIABETES & SLEEP DISORDERS

Diabetes and sleep have a complex relationship. Poor sleep can affect blood sugar control, and poor blood sugar control can affect sleep. Sleep apnea, a common sleep disorder, increases the risk of type 2 diabetes.  

Watch this video to find out more about the link between sleep and diabetes. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are associated with many conditions that can lead to insomnia, including restless leg syndrome and depression. When you don’t sleep, your blood sugar becomes harder to manage, which in turn can increase your sleep difficulties. Sleep apnea can cause obesity, which in turn can lead to type 2 diabetes.
