A study at the Chicago College of Nursing, University of Illinois, Chicago, the United States shows an association between the poor sleeping habits and the worsening of the health such as the high blood sugar levels, neuropathic pain and fatigue in the adult patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D). This study was intended to find out the effects of type 2 diabetes (T2D) with the disturbed sleep. They conducted a study on 90 adult patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D). The researchers have collected the sleep data and the health of the participants. Researchers accounted for factors such as age, depression symptoms, duration of the type 2 diabetes (T2D) in the study.
The study shows that the high blood sugar levels, neuropathic pain and fatigue were strongly associated with the sleep disturbance and sleep-related impairment such as insomnia and DIMS (disorders of initiating and maintaining sleep). The study also shows that the intensity of the negative effects is more in women.
Authors say that the disturbance in the sleep is common among the patients with diabetes and the disturbance in the sleep may worsen the blood sugar (glucose) levels. Authors also say that the diabetes symptoms assessment questionnaire must contain the assessment of the disturbance in the sleep for the effective treatment of the sleep disorder.
They urged the healthcare professionals to pay an extra attention to the sleeping patterns among adult patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and particularly in women. Experts say that the people suffering from sleep disturbances should consult the healthcare professionals to find out whether the lifestyle or type 2 diabetes (T2D) may be the reason for the disturbed sleep.
Senior author of the study was Dr. Cynthia Fritschi, Ph.D., RN, CDE, Assistant Professor, Department of Biobehavioral Health Science, University of Illinois. The study was published on November 8, 2017, in the Journal of Advanced Nursing. Title of the article was "Relationship and variation of diabetes-related symptoms, sleep disturbance and sleep-related impairment in adults with type 2 diabetes."

Neuropathic pain : The damage (or a disease) to the somatosensory nervous, which contains the sensory neurons and pathways (a part of the sensory nervous system) causes neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain causes weakness, numbness and pain in the feet and hands.
A study on mice models shows the reversal of type 2 diabetes (T2D), lower levels of blood sugar (glucose) and the fat content by reducing the daily energy intake by 75 percent or with a very low-calorie diet (VLCD). Researchers have found the positive health benefits in just three days.
Researchers are using this experimental technique on humans for reversing type 2 diabetes. They are conducting a study on patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and undergoing bariatric surgery with the very low-calorie diet (VLCD). This study provides an innovative drug target for the effective treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2D).
Senior author of the study was Gerald I. Shulman, M.D., the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), Yale, United States. The study was published November 9, 2017, in the Cell Metabolism. Title of the article was "Mechanisms by which a Very-Low-Calorie Diet Reverses Hyperglycemia in a Rat Model of Type 2 Diabetes."

Very low-calorie diet : The daily diet for the person may contain between 1,600 and 3,000 calories. But a daily diet containing between 500 and 800 calories is called as a very low-calorie diet (VLCD). This diet plan is intended for those people who are very overweight and could not able to reduce body weight with other diet plans. But this diet plan is dangerous and should be performed under medical supervision. A VLCD diet can help an obese person in reducing weight between three and five pounds per week.
