TCOYD’s resident nutrition expert Janice Baker has a helpful tip for eating smart and taking control of your diabetes – and your diet!
Another “under the radar” but very significant reason for problems with blood sugar and weight control is disrupted sleep. Whatever the reason may be – sleep apnea, snoring, too much late night computer or tv viewing – we know that getting at least 7 hours of good quality sleep per night is an essential part of weight and diabetes control. Be sure to bring up any sleep issues at your doctor visits. If your spouse or other family member tells you that you snore loudly, it’s time to be screened for obstructive sleep apnea – a serious health issue.
