Go To Bed Earlier For Better Blood Sugar Control, Study Says
For this study, researchers set out to investigate how sleep duration, timing, and quality can affect people’s blood sugar fluctuations.
To do so, they pooled nearly 1,000 healthy adults for a two-week study. Over the course of the two weeks, participants wore movement-tracking devices that measured their sleep quality and glucose-monitoring devices that recorded their blood sugar after eating a standardized breakfast each morning.
The change in blood glucose levels after eating a meal is known as “postprandial glycemic control.” Maintaining better postprandial glycemic control is a sign of healthy blood sugar balance.
