Endocrinologist Dr. Anastasios Manessis discusses the connection between diabetes and sleep, specifically around how the condition can impact sleep quality, and how disorders such as sleep apnea can worsen the ailments for Type 2 diabetes by impacting insulin production. In treating sleep apnea and addressing any other issues that interfere with sleep quality, individuals who also live with Type 2 diabetes can improve glycemic control and delay progression of the condition.
Anastasios Manessis, M.D. , a faculty member of NYU since 2011, has been involved in many clinical research projects including long-term studies to evaluate efficacy and safety of GLP-I agonists and weight loss agents. His primary clinical interest includes treatment of diabetic patients with insulin pumps and how it has benefited the well-being of patients long-term.
