Strong associations of diabetes with sleep impairment have been frequently reported. In the present review, we discuss current evidence and hypotheses for how type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus are associated with sleep impairment. This association may be described as a vicious circle, where sleep disorders favor the development of type 2 diabetes or exacerbate the metabolic control of both types of diabetes, whereas diabetes itself, especially when associated with poor metabolic control, is often followed by sleep disorders. In this review, novel findings concerning the neuro-endocrine-metabolic mediation of the mentioned circle are highlighted. Understanding how this association occurs, the impact of sleep impairment on diabetes, and the impact of diabetes on the development or exacerbation of sleep disorders should lead to potential new therapeutic strategies for treating both conditions.

Evidence suggests that short and long sleep are associated with a higher risk of type 2 diabetes. Using successive data waves spanning >20 years, we examined whether a change in sleep duration is asso...
To describe the relationship between objectively assessed sleep and blood glucose in a prospective cohort of women recently diagnosed with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).
To explore the interrelationship and mediating effect of factors that are beneficial (i.e., antioxidants) and harmful (i.e., inflammation and oxidative stress) to the relationship between sleep and ca...
Our purpose was to investigate the relationship between oxygen saturation (SpO2) and dynamic interstitial glucose level (IGL) in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) along with type 2 diabetes ...
This study aims to investigate 1. whether sleep extension results in improvements of endocrine and metabolic markers of obesity and diabetes in obese teenagers, 2. the rel...
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a disabling, unexplained disorder characterized by physical and mental exhaustion. Complaints of disturbed and unrefreshing sleep are very common in CFS p...
In this study the investigators plan to systematically characterise infra-slow EEG oscillations during sleep, explore their relationship to the microstructure of sleep, and investigate its...
In a Phase II trial in subjects with nonrestorative sleep, PD 0200390 demonstrated a positive treatment effect relative to placebo on the primary endpoint, the weekly version of the Restor...
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a serious sleep disorder in which a person repeatedly stops breathing, or experiences shallow breathing for short periods of time during sleep. Daytime sle...
The state of being deprived of sleep under experimental conditions, due to life events, or from a wide variety of pathophysiologic causes such as medication effect, chronic illness, psychiatric illness, or sleep disorder.
Periods of sleep manifested by changes in EEG activity and certain behavioral correlates; includes Stage 1: sleep onset, drowsy sleep; Stage 2: light sleep; Stages 3 and 4: delta sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, telencephalic sleep.
A condition associated with multiple episodes of sleep apnea which are distinguished from obstructive sleep apnea (SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE) by the complete cessation of efforts to breathe. This disorder is associated with dysfunction of central nervous system centers that regulate respiration. This condition may be idiopathic (primary) or associated with lower brain stem lesions; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (LUNG DISEASES, OBSTRUCTIVE); HEART FAILURE, CONGESTIVE; medication effect; and other conditions. Sleep maintenance is impaired, resulting in daytime hypersomnolence. Primary central sleep apnea is frequently associated with obstructive sleep apnea. When both forms are present the condition is referred to as mixed sleep apnea (see SLEEP APNEA SYNDROMES). (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395; Neurol Clin 1996;14(3):611-28)
Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
Movements or behaviors associated with sleep, sleep stages, or partial arousals from sleep that may impair sleep maintenance. Parasomnias are generally divided into four groups: arousal disorders, sleep-wake transition disorders, parasomnias of REM sleep, and nonspecific parasomnias. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p191)
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
