Sleep and depressive symptoms in adolescents with type 1 diabetes not meeting glycemic targets.


Adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D) are at risk for problems with self-management and suboptimal glycemic control, and depressive symptoms and sleep disturbances predict poorer diabetes outcomes. Despite evidence for associations between adolescent depressive symptoms and sleep in the general population, few studies have investigated this link in the vulnerable group of adolescents with T1D not meeting glycemic targets. The current study sought to assess both depressive symptoms and sleep in relation to diabetes indicators in adolescents with T1D.
