Type 2 diabetes patients who slept for less than 4.5 hours or more than 8.5 hours had significantly higher A1C levels than those who slept for 6.5 to 7.4 hours, a Japanese study indicated. "Our findings suggest that patients with either a short or long sleep duration should be considered high-risk patients for poor glycemic control, and this may have important implications for the clinical management of diabetes," researchers wrote in Diabetes Care.
