Diabetes and Sleep Problems: Treatment tips
freestyle libre cover
All of us like to have a sweet dream, however, it is not that easy when you have type 1 or 2 diabetes.
The most important thing is not to accept bad sleep as part of your life. Listen… you can’t let it get you, alright?
There are some tips on how to improve your sleep quality:
- Increase the “high alarm” on your glucose monitor to reduce interruption frequency
- Raising your blood sugar and insulin doses overnight can help you sleep better
- Check your blood sugar every night before bed.
- Shadows and curtains help you make your bedroom dark which let you sleep well without light interrupting
- Try not to use your phone/computer/laptop an hour before sleep. Furthermore, put it on silent mode, therefore social networks won’t disturb you.
- Create your own rituals before sleep: cold and hot shower, relaxing music for meditation, etc
- Try our freestyle libre cover, which protects your sensor throughout the night.
We hope these tips will help you to sleep better.
Sweet Dreams!
