Inadequate Sleep As A Contributor To Type 2 Diabetes In Children And Adolescents

Inadequate sleep as a contributor to type 2 diabetes in children and adolescents Nutrition & Diabetes volume 7, page e266 (2017) Lack of sleep is a modifiable risk factor for adverse health in humans. Short sleep duration and poor sleep quality are common in the pediatric population; the largest decline in sleep duration over the past decades has been seen in children and adolescents. The objective of the present narrative review was to provide for the first time an overview of the literature on sleep and its association with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) biomarkers in children and adolescents. For this narrative review, 23 studies were retained (21 observational and 2 experimental studies). Notwithstanding the conflicting results found in these studies and despite being attenuated by adiposity level, maturity, sex and age, there is still some compelling evidence for an association between sleep duration (for both objective or subjective measurements of duration) and architecture with one or more T2D biomarkers in children and adolescents. The majority of the studies reviewed did focus on sleep duration and one or more T2D biomarkers in children and adolescents, but sleep archite Continue reading >>

    I did search for this info and didn't find anything.. so I hope I'm not reposting. I think this deserves front page attention due to so many people being at risk for diabetes and not knowing it ~ so here is a way to be tested for free.
    During the month of November Walgreens is offering FREE blood glucose and A1C testing at participating stores.
    Here is an automated number to call to find out which store in your area is offering free testing - 1-877-926-3968. These tests are only offered on certain days and times in the month at participating Walgreens locations, don't expect to wander in to your local Walgreens and expect to get tested. Call the automated phone line, it is set-up for the FREE testing information. (This is the only time in history someone on SD will tell you to call a phone number.)
    They do NOT schedule appointments, it is first come first serve on the set day and time at your participating Walgreens; for example in Msla, MT where I am located they are offering testing only at the Reserve St. on November 19th from 1-7pm.
    I would assume you need to fast for twelve hours for the blood glucose test. For those of you that don't know what an A1C test is - it is a test that is able to determine your blood sugar ratio over the last three months.
    Thanks - again I did search for this but didn't find any info. No, I don't work for Walgreens - I just want people to know if they are at risk for this disease.
