I'm a type two diabetic with sleep apnea and wear my mask every night. Recently i've had some days where my so called naps (like today)lasted 10hrs, waking once to eat a bowl of cereal at midnight and then fell right back to sleep. I will be honest and say that I did have some sweets earlier in the day. If my sugar intake is too high could it cause these prolonged periods of sleep? I only had 4 hours of sleep the night before but I wouldn't think I would need more than a couple hours for a nap. I checked my bg 3 hours after my cereal and it was 165, which is high for me. My doctor won't do another sleep lab because I don't have contiuous sleep habits. I haven't talked to him about this yet. I wanted to see if this happens to any of you and if this could be diabetes related. Hope someone can give me tneir veiwpoint on tnis before I call my pulmonologist.
