Sleep Quality and Day Time Sleepiness in Patients with Type-2 Diabetes
Keywords:Sleep quality, day time sleepiness, Diabetes
The present study was undertaken to observe the sleep quality and day time sleepiness in patients with type-
2 diabetes. The study included thirty type 2 diabetic patients and thirty age and gender matched healthy
participants. Pittsburgh Sleep Quality index (PSQI) was used to assess the sleep quality of the participants.
Epworth sleepiness scale was used to assess the day time sleepiness. There was significantly lower sleep
quality in the diabetic patients when compared with the healthy individuals (P<0.001). There was significantly
higher day time sleepiness in the diabetic patients when compared with the healthy individuals (P<0.001).
The study results suggest that there was a significant deterioration of sleep quality in diabetic individuals
which is reflected in day time sleepiness scores as diabetic individuals have higher day time sleepiness.
We recommend further detailed studies to understand the association and also to develop better treatment
strategies for the benefit of population in general.
