Poor sleep quality linked to higher type 1 diabetes distress
A cross-sectional study enrolled 46 young adults aged 18 to 30 years with type 1 diabetes for at least 6 months and no other major health problems. Of the study cohort, 54.3% slept fewer than 7 hours per night. The cohort had a mean sleep quality score of 5.91, with a score of greater than 5 signifying poor sleep quality. Moderate emotional distress was reported by 30.4% of the cohort, and 41.3% met the criteria for moderate diabetes distress. Females reported having more hypoglycemia symptoms (P = .001) and fatigue symptoms (P =.008) compared with males. Young adults with type 1 diabetes have more diabetes distress symptoms with shorter sleep time, lower sleep efficiency, and higher sleep variability.
