According to a recent poll by the National Sleep Foundation, a growing number of people are getting less than 6 hours of sleep everyday against the recommended 8 hours. While increased screen time, usage of digital media and emotional and physical stressors are known to affect sleep, people with diabetes face an additional challenge that impacts their sleep; they’re prone to nocturnal hypoglycemia— low blood sugar during the night— which can lead to a range of consequences, if left unchecked. Nocturnal hypoglycemia, a condition in which the blood sugar drops below 70 mg/dL during the night, may impact people with diabetes, especially among those with type 1 diabetes mellitus. Studies suggest that nearly half of all severe hypoglycemia episodes occur at night. It is possible, in some cases, for episodes to be asymptomatic, while in others, people may encounter sleep disturbances or experience symptoms like headaches, confusion, irritability or damp clothes from sweating, on waking up. Irrespective of its extent or ability to cause symptoms, however, hypoglycemia needs to be tracked and tackled, to ensure the glucose level returns to its normal range without delay or serious repercussions.
