Reduced deep sleep tied to poor glycemic control in children with type 1 diabetes

February 10, 2016

Children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes have a significantly reduced percentage of efficient and deep sleep time vs. healthy controls, leading to poor glycemic control, according to study findings presented at the ninth annual International Conference on Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes.

Miriam Ciljakova, PhD, of Comenius University, Bratislava, and University Hospital Martin, Slovakia, and colleagues analyzed data from 30 children with type 1 diabetes (15 boys; mean age, 15 years; mean diabetes duration, 9.25 years) and 10 healthy controls (five boys; mean age, 14 years). All children underwent standard evening polysomnographic examination; children with type 1 diabetes wore continuous glucose monitors (during polysomnography, day before and day after). Researchers compared sensor glucose levels with blood glucose; children with hypoglycemia were excluded. Researchers measured average sensor glucose, glucose variability, bedtime glucose and HbA1c in children with diabetes.
