Endocrinologist to explore the diabetes-sleep connection

Aug 1,2013
Join endocrinologist Sarah Swarts, MD, for an evening discussion on the diabetes connection to sleep apnea — a condition where even 10 hours of “sleep” each night can lead to fatigue-filled days.

Sleep apnea affects a large proportion of the population, and those with diabetes are at a higher risk. Getting sleep apnea under control can improve blood sugar levels, which can reduce complications such as heart and kidney disease.

Controlling your diabetes can help you sleep better, and sleeping better can help control your diabetes. Learn more at the Dream On support group, which aims to help those who suffer from a sleep disorder find the help and support they need. Refreshments and sleep-related giveaways will be available.
