Diabetes and Sleep

Getting a good night's sleep can be hard for people with Diabetes.  A stressful day, being thirsty, or having to urinate often are just some of the problems that can keep someone awake at night.

Try these tips for a good night's sleep:

  • Go to bed and get up and the same time each day
  • Exercise 30 minutes a day (but not late in the day)
  • Limit caffeine and alcohol (especially after 3 PM)
  • Have a quiet hour of talking, listening to music, or reading before bedtime (no TV, cell phone, computer)
  • Sleep in a cool, dark room
