Although this article was written basically for T2 Diabetics, the same conditions, symptoms, and problems apply to T1 as well. I found and was found by a sleep study to have just about all of the symptoms described in this article and I am a T1. I had also put on a lot of weight after my bypass surgery.
I was waking up during the night gasping for air. I would toss and turn during the night. Start out the night on side of the bed and by morning be somewhere else entirely, on the bed.
The sleep study found that I had a lot of spastic type movements with my legs in general. I suffered from RLS too. I stopped breathing in my sleep several times a minute! I was shocked by what they found out!
I now sleep with a CPAP and get a very restful nights sleep. I am so thankful my doctor sent me to have the sleep study done! (I also don't snore anymore. LOL Yes, this woman is admitting she snores!)
I hope this article helps someone else, like my doctor did for me. Oh, and yes, I was tired all the time and would fall asleep at the drop of a hat! I don't do that much now, but that's another story…
