Aminta Rodrigues | Safeekh A. T

Abstract: Background: Diabetes is one of the rigorous health crises of the twenty-first century. Population growth, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, unhealthy diet and habits, and short sleep duration are common risk factors which would lead to increase in prevalence of diabetes. In this background, the aim of this study was to determine the effect of sleep quality among glycaemic controls. Method: A cross sectional study was conducted among 43 poor and good glycaemic controls in the Father Muller Medical College Hospital. Cut-off of Glycated haemoglobin level < 7 was considered as good glycaemic control. Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and Epworth Sleep Scale (ESS) self-reported instruments were used to assess sleep quality. Results: Out of total, 75.6% had poor sleep quality and 46.5% had daytime sleepiness symptoms. The study showed that score of PSQI subscales and ESS was higher and statistically significant among poor glycaemic controls compared counterpart. There was significant associations of sleep quality with family history of diabetes (p value = 0.016) and duration of diabetes (p value =0.024). Conclusion: Sleep disorder is common in diabetic patients and as a bidirectional relationship between glycaemic controls with sleep disorders. Therefore, it is important to address sleep problems for eliminating the complications caused by sleep disorder which may in return lead to better glycaemic control as well as improvement in quality of life.
