Type 2 Diabetes And Sleep

Scientists are continuing to discover the importance of sleep and the link between sleep and type 2 diabetes.

When you’re a diabetic, you tend to go to the loo more during the night because your body has a tendency to flush out floating blood sugar through urinating. That’s the first place your sleep gets hit.

If you’re one of those people who find it difficult to go back to sleep once you’ve woken up, but have very limited time to sleep, you’re going to end up craving more food to generate more energy since you weren’t completely healed during sleep.

That again, forces your body into creating more insulin that builds up during the day and forces your kidney to flush it out at night, leaving you wide awake for another night!

So if you’ve been diagnosed with pre/type 2 diabetes, take extra care about eating your last meal at least 4 hours before bed time and allow your body to flush out the blood sugar SK you get a good night’s sleep!
