Type 2 diabetes: Do you sleep like this? The sleeping pattern that increases diabetes risk
TYPE 2 diabetes is a serious condition that involves the insulin made by the pancreas not working properly. Sleeping patterns could increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Are you at risk?
Chronic insomnia is linked to an increased risk of developing hypertension, Type 2 diabetes, heart attack, depression, anxiety and premature death.
ConclusionIt would therefore appear that older diabetic patients would be a suitable target group for a strategy aimed at preventing falls. Early recognition of the multiple causes of falls in the older diabetic patient and prompt referral of this group of patients to a specialist falls clinic is recommend.
This study aimed to explore the association of obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) hypoxia indicators with early renal injury and serum fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) in obese type 2 diabetic patients.MethodsA total of 109 obese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) were recruited, including 70 males and 39 females, with an average age of 52.77 ± 13.57 years and average BMI of 29.08 ± 4.36 kg/m2. Overnight sleep monitoring was performed with a portable monitor to record respiratory parameters [apnea-hypopnea index (AHI), oxygen desaturation ind...
AbstractPurpose of ReviewSleep and environmental factors both impact glycemic control in persons with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). This narrative article aims to review research within the past 5 years, focusing on chronotype, light, noise, and neighborhood disparities in relation to sleep in people with T2DM.Recent FindingsSleep quality and duration have been shown to impact glycemic control in patients with T2DM. Later chronotype can lead to poorer glycemic control due to disruption of circadian rhythms. Light exposure also has similar effects, likely due to its inherent influence on sleep quality. Environmenta...
Conclusions: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a safe and effective procedure, with good results in the short and medium term. Long-term follow-up reveals a tendency to weight regain after approximately 2 years from primary surgery, with the need for revisional surgery in some cases. PMID: 31118990 [PubMed]
CONCLUSIONS: Obesity-associated comorbidities most notably appeared to have a greater relative influence on cognitive performance than BMI itself in adults with severe obesity. This likely reflects the fact that a very elevated BMI was ubiquitous and thereby probably exerted a similar influence among all adults in the cohort. Accordingly, in the context of severe obesity, diabetes and other comorbidities may have greater sensitivity to cognitive deficits than BMI alone. PMID: 31116012 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: While OSA severity independently predicted incident diabetes, regular long-term CPAP use was associated with reduced risk of incident T2D, after adjustment for various baseline metabolic risk factors and subsequent body weight change. PMID: 31128116 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsFuture studies need to examine the true prevalence of OSA in a more representative sample of women with PCOS. Nevertheless, our results suggest that the prevalence of OSA in women with PCOS and obesity is high and clinicians should have a high index of suspicion of OSA in these women.

ConclusionsWe were able to develop an interactive estimation application to provide a population-based guidance for potential outcomes of LRYGB. This might be useful not only for health professionals but also for patients interested in learning potential outcomes in specific circumstances.
