SDB and type 2 diabetes
SDB is common among patients with type 2 diabetes1 and is independently associated with glucose intolerance2, insulin resistance2, 3, and metabolic syndrome4.
However, despite the number of type 2 diabetes patients with SDB, sleep apnoea largely goes undiagnosed.5
Screen your patients for type 2 diabetes and SDB
As a result of accumulated research, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) recognises the association between type 2 diabetes and sleep apnoea, and recommends routinely screening OSA patients for type 2 diabetes, and considering the possibility of OSA in all type 2 diabetes patients.6
Use these helpful sleep and diagnosis resources to get your patients screened for SDB.
