Study finds link between too much or too little sleep and increased death rates in patients with or without diabetes

New research published in Diabetologia (the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes [EASD]) reveals that too much or too little sleep in people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) is linked to sharply increased death rates, with the effect much larger than that found in the non-diabetic population. The study, based on data from the USA, is by Dr. Chuanhua Yu, School of Health Sciences, Wuhan University, Wuhan, Hubei, China, and Dr. Xiong Chen, Department of Endocrinology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Wenzhou, Zhejiang, China, and colleagues.
