The Link Between Sleep Disorder and Diabetes
By Dr. Tom Babu, MD DNB (Endo)| 1 Comments

Diabetes is worse when combined with insomnia (Sleep disorder). In fact, insomnia makes most medical diseases much worse in ways we are only just now finding out. It can chemically disrupt the body’s insulin balance enough to even be a root cause for diabetes.

Sleep can affect your blood sugar levels and your blood glucose control can also affect your sleep, which results in difficulty in sleeping. Difficulty getting a good night's rest is a serious condition; sufferers can become depressed or even suicidal. 
 
If you have blood sugar levels that are either too high or too low, you may find yourself tired through the day. Lethargy and insomnia can both have their roots in blood sugar control and can be a key in re-establishing a healthy sleep pattern.
 
Research has linked chronic insomnia with a wide range of health problems for both the short-term and long-term. Insomnia not only makes it harder to function during day-to-day activities but poor sleep is also linked with a variety of health conditions ranging from obesity to heart disease.


Diabetes is worse when combined with insomnia symptoms, studies have conclusively shown. Sleep can affect your blood sugar levels and your blood glucose control can also affect your sleep, which results in trouble sleeping.
