Do you have diabetes and trouble falling asleep from time to time. When you sleep poorly, what happens to your blood sugar? Please read the article below, and let our readers know if your sugar goes up when you have insomnia? We appreciate your comments.
The glucose and insulin levels of people without diabetes are not affected by either sleep duration or insomnia. However, people with diabetes have higher fasting glucose levels when they have insomnia. If they have short duration of sleep but good quality of sleep, the sugars are not affected. The reason for this association is not clear. If you are having difficulty sleeping, please inform your health care provider.
