Sleep Apnea May Predispose to Type 2 Diabetes

separator New research indicates that sleep apnea may change the way your body metabolizes insulin, which could lead to the development of type 2 diabetes. According to the researchers, sleep apnea triggers a “cascade” of events, including changes in endocrine function, which is related to diabetes. 

While further research needs to be done to prove a connection between sleep apnea and diabetes, if you suffer from sleep apnea it’s a good idea to get checked for diabetes. It’s a simple blood test, and you’ll find out quickly what the results are.
