Keeping blood glucose levels under control is essential for good health, both for people with diabetes and for those who do not have the disease. Not being able to sleep is a problem that diabetics usually suffer, this can trigger a serious effect on the blood glucose level.

Insomnia due to Hypoglycemia

Insomnia has also been linked to a period in which you can have less tolerance to glucose, since the levels of certain hormones produced by the endocrine system can be altered. This is responsible for releasing a certain amount of hormones at specific times of the day, including those that control appetite and insulin.

This can lead to getting up at night to take something from the fridge or to have a great feeling of hunger in the morning, which ends up modifying our blood sugar level.

During the hours in which we sleep, the body repairs tissues and prepares us to face the new day with renewed energy. It is important and very beneficial to go to bed at the same time every day, so that the body gets used to having a constant sleep routine. In this way you can prevent the annoying periods of insomnia and we will be helping the endocrine system to work normally.
