Can lack of sleep cause you bg to run higher than normal?

Thanks for all of your responses. I was totally sleep deprived Monday, had spent the whole night before in the ER with my hubby and was able to lay down until after 2pm yesterday and when I got home my BG was higher than normal for me in the am. Now I know if I don't sleep at all the night before what it will do.

I'm sure STRESS was a big factor in the higher than normal BG. Sleep, or lack of, does play a part in your BG also.
If I'd spent the night in ER, with hubby, I'd surely be high! Hope all are better !

Sleep, or lack of it, can affect your BGs. I say affect, because it can make you higher, or lower. There seems to be no rhyme or reason that I can determine why it does what it does because of my lack of sleep. I am t2 and use insulin.

Im Type I, insulin dependent, and yes, it does affect me. When i get up later on the weekends, than I do during the week (like a 2 hour difference) it runs my sugar higher. Or,…if you dont get enough sleep during the night, that will also do it. I honestly cant even tell you the last time I slept ALL the way through the night without getting up to pee or drink! Ugh,…it really does make you tired every morning after so many years of this. Hope this helped ya!
