    I've recently been diagnosed with borderline diabetes at 52 yrs old because my blood sugar was 130
    after 12hrs of fasting. Assuming the diagnosis is right i have a question about the affect of
    diabetes on sleep. Sometimes at night i get so hungry i cant sleep until i eat to calm he craving
    down. In the hours between eating and when i drop off i get a twitching in my muscles which makes it
    hard to sleep.I wonder if this is an affect of high blood [email protected]

    You may have "restless leg syndrome". I don't think there
    is a strong association with diabetes and blood sugars
    levels. I am not sure though when blood sugar levels are
    really high. I find that doing some leg exercises even in
    the middle of the night to point of fatique lets me fall
    back to sleep..

    Cravings can be cut by lemon juice.

    Stay away from diet dodas sweetened with
    Aspartame/Nutrasweet and anything thathas this sweetener.
