CPAP Improved Glucose in Patients with Prediabetes, sleep apnoea

Diabetes is a medical condition characterized by elevation of blood sugar above normal limits along with signs and symptoms such as dizziness, non-healing ulcers, and cardiovascular problems. Sleep apnoea can worsen diabetes, as seen in some studies. According to data presented at the American Thoracic Society International Conference, patients with prediabetes could see improved glucose control with proper treatment for sleep apnoea. The investigators found that optimal treatment of sleep apnoea with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) for 2 weeks led to significant improvements in glucose levels following an oral glucose test without affecting insulin secretion, suggesting an improvement in insulin sensitivity.
