Sleep Apnea in Type 1 Diabetes (DIASOM)

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:2nd Sep 2013
Sleep apnea syndrome is strongly associated to type 2 diabet, partly and this is partly due to obesity. Treatment of sleep apnea may improve hypertension, cardiovascular risk and in some studies diabetes status. Few data are available for type 1 diabetes but suggest that the prevalence of sleep apnea syndrome may be high. We plan to compare the prevalence of sleep apnea syndrome assessed by polysomnography in a sample of type 1 diabetic patients and a control group matched by age, gender and body mass index. The secondary objective is to determine if the presence of an autonomic neuropathy or poorly controlled diabetes (assessed by glycosylated haemoglobin) may or not contribute to the presence of sleep apnea in the diabetic group.
