Sleep Characteristics In Type 1 Diabetes And Associations With Glycemic Control: Systematic Review And Meta-analysis - Sciencedirect

Sleep characteristics in type 1 diabetes and associations with glycemic control: systematic review and meta-analysis Author links open overlay panel SirimonReutrakula Adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D) reported poorer sleep quality based on questionnaire scores than adults without T1D. Adults with T1D and poor sleep quality or sleeping 6 hours had poorer glycemic control. Children with T1D had shorter measured sleep duration than children without T1D. The estimated prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in adults with T1D was 51.9%. Adults with T1D and moderate-to-severe OSA tended to have poorer glycemic control. The association between inadequate sleep and type 2 diabetes has garnered much attention, but little is known about sleep and type 1 diabetes (T1D). Our objectives were to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis comparing sleep in persons with and without T1D, and to explore relationships between sleep and glycemic control in T1D. Studies were identified from Medline and Scopus. Studies reporting measures of sleep in T1D patients and controls, and/or associations between sleep and glycemic control, were selected. A total of 22 studies were eligible for the meta Continue reading >>

    Blood sugar control without meds

    I am not a doctor I am just sharing my experience. Here is my story - last year I suddenly lost 25Lbs, vision got blurry and had numbness in my foot. I suspected of diabetes and yes I was diagnosed with it. My fasting BS was 330 and after meals was 591. Luckily my father had similar diagnosis 26 years ago .. he told me not to take medication right away and try diet and exercise and allow at least 60 days and see what happens. He said that it may reverse. I started exercise - biking to work. Very low carb. diet and some breathing (yoga) exercises. I did not see my numbers improving much for first 50 days and it was frustrating. Suddenly I started seeing my numbers fell 20-30 points every day and my fasting BS was around 100-120 after 60 days or so. My after meal BS was around 200-230. Then I had to travel abroad for work for a week so I took metmorphin for a week - 1000mg/day since the low carb diet availability was impractical. My fasting numbers became 80-90 and after meal numbers < 120 (2 hrs). I stopped metmorphin to see if my numbers stay there. Yes, the numbers stayed there as long as I was on low card diet and doing regular exercise. I have stopped medications after that.
    I think one should allow some time for diet and exercise and see if it works before starting on medication. My father controlled his diabetes for first 24 years without meds. He started medication in last 2 years. Since I am not a big fan of pills I try natural foods that controls BS - a mix of bitter melon, sprouted fenugrek seeds, gudmar, cinnamon every day.. I think it works.. or at least it worked for my father for a long time. Is there anyone else on the forum with similar experience?

    psd, I went on Metformin and Lantus right away. Both helped in getting all my testing numbers in a more normal range pretty quickly. I am glad I went on both. Diet and exercise helped get those testing numbers into a better range so I was able to give up the Lantus and I have cut back on the Met (not off it completley yet). A lot of doctors are now prescribing meds like Lantus at DX. I talked with my Doc about it and he said it was just there to give the beta cells a bit of a rest. Mine sure needed the rest as my fasting BG was 640 at dx and the pancreus was really working overtime. Now I am doing fine without the Lantus and just controlling with the met, exercise and diet.

    Its great it worked for you, I tried all of that and it did nothing for me. The thing it worked for you is all that counts, there are many that had high numbers and without high meds would still have them. My question would be what do you eat that allows lower blood sugar.

A powerful tool for helping insomnia, a combination of Binaural Beats for Delta Waves and the 852 hz Ancient Solfeggio Frequency. This frequency will balance your Third Eye Chakra while inducing deep states of relaxation. The binaural beat will stimulate a deep sleep state. Binaural beats, or binaural tones, are auditory processing artifacts, or apparent sounds, caused by specific physical stimuli. This effect was discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove and earned greater public awareness in the late 20th century based on claims coming from the alternative medicine community that binaural beats could help induce relaxation, meditation, creativity and other desirable mental states. Binaural beats reportedly influence the brain in more subtle ways through the entrainment of brainwaves and provide other health benefits such as control over pain. Binaural beats may influence functions of the brain in ways besides those related to hearing. This phenomenon is called "frequency following response". The concept is that if one receives a stimulus with a frequency in the range of brain waves, the predominant brainwave frequency is said to be likely to move towards the frequency of the stimulus (a process called entrainment). In addition, binaural beats have been credibly documented to relate to both spatial perception and stereo auditory recognition, and, according to the frequency following response, activation of various sites in the brain. When the perceived beat frequency corresponds to the delta, theta, alpha, beta, or gamma range of brainwave frequencies, the brainwaves entrain to or move towards the beat frequency. For example, if a 315 Hz sine wave is played into the right ear and a 325 Hz one into the left ear, the brain is entrained towards the beat frequency 10 Hz, in the alpha range. Since alpha range is associated with relaxation, this has a relaxing effect, or if in the beta range, more alertness. An experiment with binaural sound stimulation using beat frequencies in the beta range on some participants and the delta/theta range on other participants found better vigilance performance and mood in those on the awake alert state of beta-range stimulation. Binaural beat stimulation has been used fairly extensively in attempts to induce a variety of states of consciousness, and there has been some work done in regards to the effects of these stimuli on relaxation, focus, attention, and states of consciousness. Studies have shown that with repeated training to distinguish close frequency sounds that a plastic reorganization of the brain occurs for the trained frequencies and is capable of asymmetric hemispheric balancing. Frequency range, Name, Usually associated with: Higher than 40 Hz, Gamma waves, Higher mental activity, including perception, problem solving, fear, and consciousness 13–39 Hz, Beta waves, Active, busy or anxious thinking and active concentration, arousal, cognition, and or paranoia 7–13 Hz, Alpha waves, Relaxation (while awake), pre-sleep and pre-wake drowsiness, REM sleep, Dreams 8–12 Hz, Mu waves Mu rhythm, Sensorimotor rhythm 4–7 Hz, Theta waves, Deep meditation/relaxation, NREM sleep Lower than 4 Hz, Delta waves, Deep dreamless sleep, loss of body awareness This binaural beats session will stimulate the Delta Wave frequency spectrum.

Diabetes And Sleep

Tweet Sleep can affect your blood sugar levels and your blood glucose control can also affect your sleep, which results in trouble sleeping. Difficulty getting a good night's rest could be a result of a number of reasons, from hypos at night, to high blood sugars, sleep apnea, being overweight or signs of neuropathy. If you have blood sugar levels that are either too high or too low overnight, you may find yourself tired through the next 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.. Getting a good night’s sleep The following may help to promote better sleep: Keep your blood glucose under control Ensure your bed is large and comfortable enough – and pillows at a comfortable height Ensure your room is cool (around 18 degrees celcius) and well ventilated Ensure your room is dark and free from noise – if this is not possible, you may benefit from a sleeping blindfold or ear plugs Incorporating a period of exercise into each day Stick to a regular bed time Can a lack of sleep be a cause of diabetes? Research has shown that sleep deprivation and insulin resistance may be linked. People who r Continue reading >>

    Eating bread with type 2

    Please help! I am so confused if I could eat bread, I am a newly diagnosed type 2 on diet controlled and feel like I will never be able to just eat a sandwich again :( how many of you type 2s eat bread? Is this allowable in a diet controlled ? Would taking Metformin Allow me to be eat a little more foods? PLease tell me your experiences. Thx

  2. Anonymous

    I have been a type 2 since 2001, when I started out I was very confused, my doc told me to go on Atkins and stay on it. That's the way I mostly eat to this day. But your body changes over time and food you could tolerate changes, I began telling myself I could introduce some high fiber breads and skinny sandwich breads by counting the carbs, I was alright for a while with my aic being in the 6.8 range about 130 to 158, but as the years went on, my aic went higher and my readings went to 180s to 200s and with the dawn phenoninem I would wake up with over 200.. And I stayed that way for a couple of years taking metformin 500 mg twice aday, just recently I have found I can no longer eat any type of bread, and believe me I have tried all the high fiber and whole grain I can find. I don't eat empty food, I cook all my own food and try to eat all whole foods, I am pretty inventive when it comes to adjusting recipes and spicing up conventional dishes. As of a couple of months ago I gave up all grain products, my readings have dropped into the 105 to 178 range, so I am reinventing the way I eat with lettuce sandwiches and smaller portions, so far it is working and I feel less frustrated, I take metformin now with each meal which is 1500 mg per day. If I snack it's a handful of nuts or 1/2 cup of tapioca pudding or raw veggies or 1/2 cup no sugar added ice cream…blue bunny freedom is great. I am 71 yrs old, and I never eat anything after 6 pm and I only drink water, two 32 ounce bottles every day, it's a routine that keeps me less frustrated, I treadmill 15 min am and 15 min pm walking. I hope my experience helps someone, remember …your body changes and you have to change with it…good luck

    If you like bread, try Fiber One Multi Grain Bread. It taste great and also comes in white, wheat and a raisin-cinnamon. One slice has 110 cal., 6 gm fiber, 4 gm sugar and 5 gm protein ; the fat is only 1.5 gm no saturated or Trans fats.
    I also like wraps and the one with the best flavor is made by Olé Mexican Foods, called Extreme Wellness, they come in Tomato Basil, Spinach & Herb, high Fiber, Whole Wheat and more. Most have the same info: 90 calories, 9 gm fiber, 0 sugar, 5 gm protein and NO FAT. Unlike regular tortilla wraps that use lard, these use just a small amount of olive oil. Best of all that taste great no matter what you put on them. I have even put a teaspoon of cinnamon butter and 2 teaspoons of peanut butter and felt like I was cheating! It was so good.
    These are hard to find. Olé are at most Walmart Superstores. But the Fiber One Bread I am having shipped in from Madison, WI because I can not get it in the Tucson area of AZ YET!!! I am working on that now. I will get it in a store or on base or I will have it shipped directly from the bakery.

How Can Type 1 Diabetes Affect Sleep?

We all know the miserable after-effects of a poor night’s sleep. Unfortunately, that dreary, frazzled, anxious state can be a more common reality for for someone with Type 1 diabetes. Doctors at the Sleep Disorders Program at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center estimate that 40-50% of people with diabetes complain of poor sleep. And getting a good night’s rest can help in blood glucose management as well as overall health. So what should you watch out for if you have Type 1? And how can you better your odds of a good night’s rest? Here are the most common sleeping disorders that you may be faced with and some basic advice on how to maintain healthy sleep hygiene. Sleep Apnea A person with sleep apnea stops and starts breathing repeatedly while asleep, preventing them from achieving deeper states of sleep. Warning signs of sleep apnea include: daytime drowsiness excessive nighttime snoring There are two kinds of sleep apnea – Obstructive sleep apnea – occurs when the upper airway or throat region narrows, oxygen levels decrease, and eventually the brain triggers a response to wake the person up (at least enough to take a full breath and reopen the airway).

    Good morning fellow sufferers,
    Both my wife and I have suffered for several years from Type 2 Diabetes and I have recently been reading up on the possible benefits of using Epsom Salts both externally and internally.
    Unfortunately there appears to be conflicting information on the benefits (or lack thereof) in the use of Epsom Salts so I am wondering if our members will share their opinions about whether it is good or bad, together with any reputable online links regarding the safety of using it, both externally and internally.
    I have read that it can be extremely beneficial if we have a nice long soak in the bath or if we soak our feet in it. Unfortunately we no longer have a bath installed and only have a shower.
    Also if we drink Epsom Salts it can help with the lowering of blood sugar levels and hypertension.
    On the other hand I have read that using these salts may have detrimental affects for Diabetes Type 2 sufferers.
    Any advice or opinions from those who have used, or who are using Epsom Salts would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you all in advance.
    John

    Well, magnesium salts, when drunk, cause diarrhea

  3. John Brooks

    Although I have read up about the possible side effects of taking Epsom Salts internally and 'the runs' being possibly one of them I do thank you for your reply, it was very appreciated.
    I have purchased these salts from a company called 'Westlab' and it is marked as 'medical grade' From the information I have gathered apparently not all manufactured salts are recommended for use internally and I am wondering if the salts I have bought is Ok to drink. I am awaiting a reply from them before I do drink it we are only using it to soak our feet at the moment.
    What I really need is information from fellow diabetes sufferers who have, or are, using Epsom Salts internally because as I have mentioned the information regarding drinking of Epsom Salts and diabetics is somewhat conflicting.
    Kind regards
    John
