Type 1 Diabetes is a chronic disease characterized by the body's inability to regulate blood sugar due to a disabled pancreas' not producing insulin. People with diabetes regulate their own blood sugar "manually," by administering insulin either by syringe, pen, or pump to lower blood sugar levels, and sugar or glucagon to raise it.
Different substances can have unintended effects on the treatment of diabetes; for example, caffeine can raise blood sugar (possibly because it can be a stressor) while alcohol will do funky things like raising it and dropping it quickly. Acetaminophen doesn't appear to affect blood sugars, but it can affect the accuracy of a continuous glucose monitor.
So I'd like to know what, if any, affects melatonin might have on the treatment of T1DM -- has this been studied at all?
