Nutritional Support to Help Maintain Healthy A1c Levels

Did you know poor sleep makes the body less effective at using insulin?

Aim to get at least seven to nine hours per night. If a good night’s sleep is not possible during the week, make sure you are catching up over the weekend.

A recent study showed that people who sleep more than 8 hours or less than 5 hours per night have higher blood glucose readings. This means that if they’re prediabetic, they’re more likely to develop diabetes. If they’re type 2 diabetics, then poor sleep leads to poor control of blood glucose.

In addition, participants who slept 7-8 hours daily had better HbA1c levels than the group who slept longer or shorter. Sleep is an often-overlooked factor in diabetes, so be sure to discuss sleep habits with the doctor.

What tips do you have for people wanting a better night’s sleep?
