Diabetes type 2: High blood sugars affect the body which in turn affects sleep
Blood sugar – the main type of sugar you get from eating food – supplies the body’s cells with energy. However, consistently high levels can unleash destruction on the body. If you have type 2 diabetes, you are prone to high blood sugar levels because the main regulating force – insulin production – is impaired. This in turn can affect a person’s sleeping habits in a number of ways.
According to Diabetes.co.uk, there are three main symptoms of high blood sugar.
- Increased urination
- Increased thirst
- Increased hunger.
