Study Finds Link Between Short Sleep and Gestational Diabetes

Study Finds Link Between Short Sleep and Gestational Diabetes

A new Singapore-based study suggests a link between insufficient sleep during pregnancy and gestational diabetes in Asian women. Researchers out of the National University of Singapore Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and Duke-NUS Medical School studied 686 multi-ethnic Asian pregnant women who completed a sleep questionnaire and had their glucose levels tested at 26 to 28 weeks of gestation. The researchers found that 19% of the women whose glucose levels were tested were diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Additionally, the frequency of gestational diabetes was highest, at 27.3%, among women who slept less than 6 hours per night.

Gestational diabetes may contribute to risk factors such as fetal macrosomia and other complications including a higher risk of shoulder dystocia, or instrumental delivery by forceps or vacuum, among others. If you developed gestational diabetes during your pregnancy and you or you baby were injured during the labor and delivery process, please contact us at 877-262-9767.
