Lack of Sleep Affects Blood Sugar Levels
A new study at the University of Chicago. suggests that lack of sleep may affect blood sugar levels in people with diabetes.
"We've known for some time that skimping on sleep can impair glucose tolerance even for healthy people," writes lead author Kristen Knutson, a University of Chicago researcher. "Now we have evidence connecting chronic partial sleep deprivation and reduced blood-sugar control in patients with diabetes."
