Blood Sugar Control Tip #9 - Have A Strict Sleeping Routine


Inadequate sleep or unrestorative sleep can throw your hormones off-balance. This can result in increased appetite and increased blood glucose levels. According to a study conducted in the Netherlands, having one night of poor sleep can reduce insulin sensitivity by close to twenty five percent.

Hence it is important for type 2 diabetics to work out a strict sleeping routine and follow it closely. Ensure you get a minimum seven hours of sleep everyday. If you have difficulty sleeping or find yourself not getting restorative sleep despite having clocked 7 hours of sleep each day, talk to your doctor about it. Type 2 diabetics are at higher risk of sleep apnea, a dangerous sleeping disorder which can affect diabetes management.
