Pitt+Me DSTT-1: Diabetes Sleep Treatment Trial


STUDY BASICS

Do you have type 2 diabetes? Do you also have difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking too early? If so, you may be eligible to participate in a research study to help find out if an online insomnia program can help people better manage their diabetes on their own. Compensation is provided.


STUDY PURPOSE

Millions of Americans have type 2 diabetes, a disease that affects the body’s ability to process sugar. Many people who have type 2 diabetes also have trouble sleeping, which can lead to daytime sleepiness, fatigue, stress, and a decreased ability to self-manage their diabetes.

The purpose of this research study is to find out if an online insomnia treatment program can help people sleep better and improve their diabetes management. Researchers hope their findings will lead to better health for people with diabetes in the future.

MEET THE RESEARCHER


Eileen Chasens

The focus of my research is the effect of sleep disorders and daytime sleepiness on management of chronic disease. More specifically, my research tests the efficacy of treatment of sleep disorders on the ability of persons with type 2 diabetes to integrate diabetes education into their daily behavior.
