Transcript

  • 1. Sleep Apnea and DiabetesWhat’s the Connection?
  • 2. Sleep Apnea Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by obstructed airflow and upper airway collapse during sleep Apnea: absence of breathing This causes arousal and interrupts sleep  It could happen hundreds of time during the night!
  • 3. Picture of Obstructed Airway
  • 4. Symptoms Loud snoring Frequent choking or gasping that causes brief wakening during sleep time Excessive daytime sleepiness Morning headaches Increased urination at night Weight gain Irritability or depression
  • 5. Sleep Apnea and Diabetes Lack of quality sleep and low oxygen levels that happen with sleep apnea cause a stress response in the body Increases cortisol and other stress hormones which raise blood glucose and cause insulin resistance Increases inflammation markers in the body
  • 6. Sleep Apnea and Diabetes Sleep apnea can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes because of the increased blood glucose levels and insulin resistance Persons with type 2 diabetes who are overweight have a much higher incidence of sleep apnea  Several studies found around 73% of persons with type 2 diabetes had sleep apnea
  • 7. Sleep Apnea and Diabetes Persons with diabetes AND sleep apnea:  Harder to control blood glucose  Less energy to be physically active  May cause weight gain  Increases the risk for cardiovascular disease For more information: National Heart Lung and Blood Institute http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/health-topics/topics/sleepapnea/
