Sleep is good for diabetes

SleepIsGoodSleep is so important. And I’m a huge fan of sleep. I was a maniac about teaching my kids how to sleep – and in their own beds – when they were babies. And they are excellent sleepers to this day! Sleep is related to mood, productivity, even blood glucose.

Most adults do best with 7 to 8 hours of sleep per day (night). Poor sleep can cause high blood glucose, and high blood glucose can cause poor sleep. A sleep disturbance called sleep apnea puts people at risk for serious health problems.

It’s time for bed! Let’s get some sleep.
