Sleep Hygiene

Sleep hygiene is crucial for diabetes patients as it directly impacts blood glucose levels and overall health. Establishing a consistent sleep schedule by going to bed and waking up at the same time each day helps regulate the body's internal clock, promoting better sleep quality. Creating a relaxing bedtime routine, such as reading or taking a warm bath, signals to the body that it's time to wind down. Additionally, maintaining a comfortable sleep environment by ensuring a dark, quiet, and cool room enhances sleep onset and duration. Avoiding stimulants like caffeine and nicotine close to bedtime and limiting screen time before bed can also improve sleep quality.
