Poor sleeping habits in adults with type 2 diabetes was linked to high blood sugar levels, neuropathic pain and fatigue

A study done by researchers at the Chicago College of Nursing, University of Illinois, Chicago, the United States shows an association between poor sleeping habits to worsening health problems such as high blood sugar levels, neuropathic pain and fatigue in adults with type 2 diabetes (T2D). This study was intended to find out the effects of type 2 diabetes (T2D) related events with disturbed sleep. They conducted studies among 90 adult individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) condition. In their studies, researchers have collected sleep data and health of the participants. Researchers accounted factors such as age, depression symptoms, duration of the type 2 diabetes (T2D) in their study findings.

The study findings show high blood sugar levels, neuropathic pain and fatigue were strongly associated with the sleep disturbance and sleep-related impairment such as DIMS (disorders of initiating and maintaining sleep) and insomnia. The findings also show that the negative effects were more enhanced among women.

Author of the study says sleep disturbance is common among diabetes patients and sleep disturbances worsen blood glucose or sugar levels. The author further says diabetes symptoms assessment questionnaire must include assessment of sleep disturbance symptoms to treat the sleep disorder effectively. They urged healthcare professionals to pay extra attention to sleeping patterns among adult individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) condition and particularly women. Experts say individuals suffering from sleep disturbances should consult health care professionals to find out whether their lifestyle or type 2 diabetes (T2D) may be the reason for their disturbed sleep.

Poor sleeping in type 2 diabetes adults was linked to high blood sugar, neuropathic pain and fatigue.

Senior author of the study was Dr. Cynthia Fritschi, PHD, RN, CDE, Assistant Professor, Department of Biobehavioral Health Science, University of Illinois. The study findings were published 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 : Damage or disease to somatosensory nervous, which contains 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.


The study shows a very low-calorie diet (VLCD) could help reverse type 2 diabetes

A study done on mice models by researchers shows the reversal of type 2 diabetes (T2D), lower blood sugar glucose levels and fat content levels by cutting daily energy intake by 75 percent or with a very low-calorie diet (VLCD). Researchers have found positive health benefits in just three days.

Researchers already started applying the current finding among humans to reverse their type 2 diabetes (T2D) condition. They are conducting studies on that type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients who are undergoing bariatric surgery or by applying very low-calorie diet (VLCD). If confirmed in humans, this study provides innovative drug targets for the effective treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2D) condition.

Reversal of type 2 diabetes blood sugar glucose fats by cutting calories or very low-calorie diet VLCD.

Senior author of the study was Gerald I. Shulman, M.D., the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), Yale, United States. The study findings were 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 : Daily diet of an individual contains between 1,600 and 3,000 calories. But a daily diet containing 500 to 800 calories is called as a very low-calorie diet (VLCD). This diet plan is intended for those individuals who are very overweight and failed to reduce their body weight with other diet plans. But this diet plan is dangerous and should be performed under medical supervision. A VLCD can help a very overweight individual in reducing weight between three and five pounds per week.
