Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2015 -- Diabetes, or Diabetes mellitus, refers to a group of metabolic diseases that involves extremely high levels of glucose or sugar in the blood. This disease has become interminably linked with various complications such as heart problems, hypertension, nerve damage, stroke, mental health problems, and infections, to name a few. Recent researches have surfaced that diabetes is now also connected to sleep loss or, more specifically, insomnia.
As of 2013, statistics show that 382 million worldwide are suffering from diabetes, and this number is expected to reach 592 million by 2035. The 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet reveals that diabetes affects 8.5% - or 25.8 million – of the U.S. population. By 2025, the Jefferson School of Population Health projects that 53.1 million Americans will suffer from any of the three types of diabetes. Insomnia, on the other hand, affects 60 million Americans. Taken together, these figures create an alarming picture that needs to be addressed immediately.
Z traced to the body's circadian rhythm or "body clock", which is instrumental in regulating the body's core temperature and sleep cycle. Disruptions in this rhythm caused by stressful situations, erratic meal times, and overeating, not only lead a person to develop insomnia, but is also likely to result to health problems such as diabetes.
But the relationship between diabetes and insomnia is more complex than we thought possible. Dr. Mark Mahowald, director of the Minnesota Regional Sleep Disorders Center, points out that sleep deprivation can lead to diabetes. On the other hand, the complications caused by diabetes are also likely to cause frequent sleep disruptions and sleep loss. This cause-and-effect connection makes for a vicious cycle that has left many medical professionals scratching their heads.
One solution to this problem – whether it is a diabetes-induced sleeplessness or sleeplessness-induced diabetes – is to attempt to bring the body's circadian rhythm back to normal. Regulating the body's core temperature is one way of going about it.
