Sleep Duration & Risk for Impaired Glycemic Control (video)

We examined how habitual sleep duration interacts with recent sleep (2 nights) to predict morning oral glucose tolerance test results. We hypothesized that short habitual and recent sleep durations would be additive for poor glucose control. Methods A biracial population of adults (n = 1559) without known diabetes and recruited from the workforce of 2 urban […]
