Women who suffer from two or more sleep disorders such as difficulty in sleeping, frequent snoring and sleep apnea, are at an increasing risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, indicated the study.

The risk ranges from 47 percent for one sleep disorder to more than four times the risk for four different sleeping problems combined, the study revealed.

The findings highlight the importance of good sleeping patterns and having enough sleep for preventing Type 2 diabetes, the researchers noted.

The study also provides evidence to clinical physicians and public health researchers for future diabetes prevention among a high-risk population with multiple sleep disorders, the research, published in Diabetologia, revealed.
