New Delhi, Nov 09 (ANI): Sleep disturbance in female diabetic patients can give way to elevated blood sugar levels, neuropathic pain and fatigue, a recent study has suggested. In a study conducted on 90 women with type 2 diabetes, these life threatening conditions were found even after controlling factors such as age, diabetes duration, depressive symptoms, and distress. The findings suggest that a comprehensive sleep evaluation for diabetes patients should also include tests on symptoms such as neuropathic pain and fatigue.
