How is sleep related to diabetes?

Well, poor sleep quality and sleep deprivation can contribute to insulin resistance, which is the first step in developing type 2 diabetes.

Every cell in our body has circadian machinery, which is affected by sleep.
Thus, our hormonal changes that occur during sleep affect insulin sensitivity.
Elevated blood sugars as a consequence of type 2 diabetes worsen inflammatory markers and contribute to poor quality sleep.
If blood sugar dips too low, one can have restless sleep due to feeling clammy and aroused from sleep.
