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 >>

    Recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes

    A couple of weeks ago I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Along with that my blood pressure is high, and my cholesterol is high. It's been a lot to take in during this short time. I have made some drastic changes in my diet and exercise regimen. I would be interested to hear what other people have done when they are diagnosed.

    I was diagnosed many years ago. I was diet controlled for over 40 years. I went full blown and have learned over the years that diabetics must live a well rounded life style just as to get a high school diploma or college degree one needs a well rounded education. Diet, exercise, and rest are important as well as a less stressful surrounding.
    I found that some vegetables are no no's or not eaten often. for me rice and gravy are out but I can have a small baked potato instead.
    I treat myself to a small hot fudge sundae after I have had a week of relatively stable blood sugars.
    People say I am so sorry when they find out I am diabetic. I tell them that I am not sorry. I am more aware of healthy living and have been blessed to be a diabetic.
    I hike, I hunt, fish and dance.
    I have two artificial knees and steel in my lower back. And even with diabetes, I am healthier than most. I heal quicker and I have more energy than I know what to do with sometimes.
    I only require 4 hours of sleep most of the time. I have learned deep breathing and a quiet environment helps me relax. I pace my activities and allow rest in between activities.
    Most folks do not believe that I am 64.
    Diabetics do tend to have problems with cholesterol and blood pressure. Comes with the territory.
    I can eat what everyone else does. I just have to adjust the amounts and how often. I also tend to stay away from foods that raise the blood sugars.
    I always have been a water drinker. I know when my sugars are up a glass or two of water helps bring it down quickly and I keep peanut butter cups and dr. pepper in the house if they are too low. i also keep a big jar of peanut butter at my bedside. I sometimes have drops in blood sugar and a couple of teaspoons makes the difference.
    I test often and have a great idea of how much of what and when it is necessary to adjust the numbers.
    Hang in there and keep diabetic connect. It has multitudes of info. the more we learn about our disease the better and healthier we will be if we implement those things that work.
    I use the American Diabetic Association as the ultimate source. If my doctor's recommendations are in conflict I always follow ADA advice and it has never failed me.
    These are things that work for me. I keep a journal instead of a log. I know what things are working. What affects my blood sugars may not affect yours. The wise thing to do is to note what does work and implement it into your life.

Glu : The T1d Force Awakens: Chronic Sleep Disturbances And Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a force to be reckoned with, every hour of every day. Managing ones blood sugar is hard enough during the day, while trying to work, study, exercise or play. But when night falls, patients, parents and loved ones wage war over something most people take for granted: quality, uninterrupted sleep. Between various symptoms of high or low blood sugar (BG), the treatment of such events, lying awake waiting for BG to level off, and fears and anxiety over what happens next, not to mention all of those noisy alarms on insulin pumps and CGMs, its clear that getting a full night of sleep presents a huge challenge for those with type 1 diabetes. Last month, the Wall Street Journal reported what many of us already know: that interrupted sleep is even more detrimental to overall mood and cognitive abilities like memory and focus, than a reduced period of sleep. The story was based on a recent study published in the journal Sleep by researchers from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine . This latest research supports our own Glu research, conducted last summer via survey to the Glu community. The sleep survey was a collaborative effort with Dr. Katharine Barnard, Continue reading >>

  1. Suck_My_Diabeetus

    Hello r/diabetes!
    I'm a 30 year old type 1, I've been diabetic since age 8. I've kept a good A1C and overall have a great handle on things. My doctor has me currently on humalog and lantus, and since it's been working so well we have never discussed switching to another type of insulin. I use the Humalog on a sliding scale, and over the years I've gotten so used to it that I can basically hit my dosage on the head every time based on my blood sugar levels and what I eat. I'm not on any specific diet plan or anything, I just get my humalog whenever I eat or my sugar rises (I check my sugar A LOT lol).
    I recieved a letter this weekend from my insurance company (Blue Cross/Blue Shield of NC) stating that they were taking Humalog off of their "preferred tier" of copay. I called and found out it's going all the way to the maximum copay amount (based on my research it will cost roughly $100 per month vs my current $35). The only fast acting insulin remaining on the preferred list is Novolog.
    Scheduling an appointment to see my doctor between now and Jan 1 (when the new pricing begins) is next to impossible, though I am trying. I know I can get a prescription for Novolog without actually seeing him, and I know that the two are roughly equivalent.
    So I was hoping some of the fine folks here might be able to tell me their experience with switching from one insulin to the other. Similarities, differences, etc. Based on what I've read they are essentially interchangeable, but I know that things are rarely that simple.
    And a bit more info just in case: I won't consider a pump at this time. I cant switch insurance because I get it through work.
    Thanks!
    EDIT: Thanks for all of the replies! Definitely eased my mind a bit. I was actually able to get an appointment to see my doctor on Dec 1 for a quick consultation and to get everything switched over.

  2. [deleted]

    I have switched a couple times over my thirty three years as a Type I and the last thirteen with a pump, usually for the same reason that you're being forced to switch. I've never had a problem with the switch, the same dosage worked perfectly and I never even know I'd switched. Obviously, YMMV, but I wouldn't worry too awful much about it.

  3. Suck_My_Diabeetus

    Thanks! The dosage was my main concern. I am so used to Humalog I would probably struggle at first if the dosages were different.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea Common In Type 1 Diabetes

Obstructive Sleep Apnea Common in Type 1 Diabetes BOSTON Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is common in people with type 1 diabetes and is associated with abnormal glycemia and microvascular complications but not body mass index (BMI), a new study finds. The data were presented June 7, 2015 here at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 2015 Scientific Sessions by Laurent Meyer, MD, an endocrinologist at Hopitaux Universitaires de Strasbourg, France. The link between type 1 diabetes and OSA has been reported in three previous small trials, but this study of 90 adults with type 1 diabetes is the largest such trial to date and the first to use both continuous glucose monitoring and sleep studies to investigate the relationship between OSA and both hypo- and hyperglycemic variation, Dr Meyer explained. In the study, OSA was particularly common among those with long disease duration and was associated with higher rates of diabetes complications, including retinopathy and peripheral neuropathy. "The main message for clinicians is to think of OSA in type 1 patients with a long duration of diabetes. With the design of our study we can't say check at 10 or 15 years, but in my opinion if [a p Continue reading >>

    husband has type 1 - can we get pregnant naturally?

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the site and looking for some insight about getting pregnant. My husband is a type 1, I do NOT have diabetes. He was diagnosed at age 14 (now 28 years old). We recently discussed about trying to start a family, but one of his concerns was that his family physician told him several years ago it would not be possible to conceive naturally. However, his A1c is 7.3 as of last week when he had his labs done (from what I understand, if it is under 8, then he is under control). He does inject his own insulin (I know he uses Novalog or sometimes Humalog and then 22 units of Lantis before bed) and is very good about checking his levels throughout the day and before bed. We just started taking vitamins (prenatal for me and One A Day Mens Health for him) to help get our bodies ready to start trying in the near future. I read somewhere that by taking vitamins, it could improve sperm motility and also increase sperm count, so I figured it couldnt hurt.
    Can anyone please give us some advice on your experiences, I would like an honest answer from people who know first hand rather than reading blogs and articles that may or may not be true from "scientists and doctors". We have not gone to the endocrinologist together to discuss this with her yet, but I have a feeling that will be what most of you will suggest that we do first. I do have alot of faith and being positive that there is hope we can conceive naturally.
    Im just looking to see if it is possible for us that there might be hope to start a family without spending lots of money on IVF treatment. Thanks in advance!

    While I don't have any experience, I have never heard of a male T1 not being able to have a family naturally. I would question the doc that told you that. I know of many T1 females who have had perfectly wonderful pregnancies and the kids are fine. Best of luck to you starting your family.

    Hi and welcome to DD unless he has some issues not related to diabetes he should be able to. The thing is the longer he you wait the chances go down if he experiences ED and that is a side affect for some diabetics. Good control helps and his is not bad but could get a bit better, good luck and keep having faith.

    My children are deep sleepers. When I go into their dark rooms in the morning to wake them for school, I rub their shoulders or tickle their feet, and they don’t budge.
