Sleep Apnea – does it make diabetes harder to control?

In a small study by the University of Chicago, researchers are stating clearly that obstructive sleep apnea that is undiagnosed and untreated leads to complications of diabetes from poor blood glucose control.

While 60 individuals was the number used for the study, we know nothing about the health of the individuals other than that they must have had diabetes and sleep apnea before the study.

Since it is known that sleep apnea does relate as a risk factor to diabetes, this study is still important to be aware of. Read about the study here.
