Sleep disturbances are increasing and may be even more pronounced in adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D). We aimed to investigate sleep and its association to glycemic parameters.
A pilot study with repeated questionnaire and actigraphy data from 45 patients for 7 nights, age 6-17 years old; 19 with T1D and 26 controls. Data was analyzed using principal component regression analysis (PCA).
96.5% of the participants had on average insufficient sleep duration. Children with T1D had a median age of 11; HbA1c 59.00 mmol/mol; Time-in-range (TIR) 60.2%; Time below range 3.5%. No difference in sleep duration or sleep quality between T1D and controls. Insufficient sleep was associated with a 4.3 mmol/mol increase in HbA1c (p 0.005) and a decreased TIR (-4.7%, p 0.06). It was a tendency that poor objective sleep was associated with an increased HbA1c (3.9 mmol/mol, p 0.09).
These results highlight the importance for further in-depth investigation of the association between sleep and glycemic outcomes in children and adolescents with T1D.
