Summary: Those who report trouble sleeping are at increased risk of poor cardiometabolic health problems which can lead to type 2 diabetes.

As the Christmas season starts to ramp up, University of South Australia researchers are reminding people to prioritise a good night’s sleep as new research shows that a troubled sleep may be associated with risk factors for type 2 diabetes.

UniSA researcher Dr Lisa Matricciani says different aspects of sleep are associated with risk factors for diabetes.

“In this study, we examined the association of different aspects of sleep, and risk factors for diabetes, and found a connection between those who had troubled sleep and those who were at risk of type 2 diabetes.”.

Multidimensional Sleep and Cardiometabolic Risk Factors for Type 2 Diabetes: Examining Self-Report and Objective Dimensions of Sleep

The purpose of the study was to determine the association between objective and self-report measures of sleep and cardiometabolic risk factors for type 2 diabetes

Cardiometabolic risk factors for type 2 diabetes were examined in terms of body mass index and biomarkers of inflammation and dyslipidemia

Generalized estimating equations, adjusted for geographic clustering, were used to determine the association between measures of sleep and cardiometabolic risk factors

Both objective and self-report measures of sleep were significantly but weakly associated with cardiometabolic risk factors

Both objective and self-report measures of sleep are significantly associated with cardiometabolic risk factors for type 2 diabetes

Self-report troubled sleep is associated with poorer cardiometabolic health, independent of actigraphy-derived sleep parameters
