Progression of Prediabetes
Chan-won Kim, MD at Kangbuk Samsung Hospital, said that the previous study defined diabetes according to self-report. He said that this could affect the association. He also said that there are no studies that have investigated the connection between progression of prediabetes and sleep duration. Kim and his team studied if there was a link between insufficient sleep and progression of prediabetes to diabetes. In their study, they found the connection between short sleep duration and progression of prediabetes. The study was independent of lifestyle characteristics and socioeconomic factors.
