    hi, i have a very bad time latelly, it's probably caused by overdoing, or my wisdom tooth extraction..i cannot sleep at all, after 2 hours i wake up with sweats and stuff, i don t feel bad when i wake up ,just wired and awake, imposible to fall back asleep.. i was thinking i wake up because of hypoglycemia, so last night at 1 o clock when i wake up, i check it, it was 97 mg/dl..not very good bit still in normal range i guess..i take a sleeping pill and finally sleep till 11 in the morning..when i check my glucose again..it was 108 m/dl..wich means prediabetes...

    Can the bad sleep that i have in the last weeks cause this increase?..i'm also more stressed than usual..or am i develeped diabetes?? i test few months back and they told me i don t have it, fasting glucose was 85, h1abc was 5.1% and the most curios insulin sensititvity was very high..my mornin level of insulin were below the normal range ,2.4 something instead 6-13 if i remember corectly..the doctor say this is a good thing,that i need very little insulin to keep my blood sugar in order..i really don t want to go back to doctors,can i put this increase in blood sugar due to the insomnia that i have latelly ,didin t eat much either..or is somethin that i should investigate further??

    Sleep deprivation has been found to cause higher glucose levels all by itself.

    Overdoing it causes increased problems with sleeping for me, and for others according to past comments here on PR.
