A study published in Diabetes Care found that poorer sleep quality, lower sleep efficiency and higher sleep variability were linked to higher blood glucose levels, with sleep variability being the greatest sleep measure to affect A1C. Using data from 172 patients with type 2 diabetes, the researchers noted that "sleep may be an important modifiable factor" in patients with type 2 diabetes, and sleep variability may "be a promising therapeutic target."
