Background: Glycemic control is important to reduce the risk of micro - vascular problems among patients with diabetes mellitus. Sleep limitation leads to increase Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) levels; though, slight is known regarding the metabolic impacts of usual sleep limitation. The current study was a hospital-based cross-sectional study which performed to evaluate the association between habitual sleep quality with glycemic control and HbA1c fluctuations among contributors in the medical merjan city among Type 2 diabetics. Objectives: The purpose of current study is to assess sleep quality among Type 2 diabetic patients and to consider the influence of sleep value on glycemic control among those patients in Al-Hilla City. Methods: Our study was “descriptive cross sectional study” to assess the sleep quality using Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index by filling out the questionnaire formats which designed for usage of the study. This study include a “convenient sample” of 150 Type 2 diabetic patients who visit the specialist day clinic in diabetic center of merjan medical hospital between the 25th of February to the end of June, 2018.

Results: The mean age of diabetic patients was (53.20 ± 13.53), Male represents (42.7%) and female represents (57.3%). Poor sleep quality represent (35.3%). There was a significant increase in level of HbA1c and random blood sugar among patients with Type 2 diabetics with poor sleep quality and significant decrease of cholesterol and triglycerides levels with increase duration of diabetes mellitus. Conclusions: Poor sleep was common among diabetic patients.
