High blood glucose can wake you up to urinate, while low blood glucose can wake you with hunger. Too little sleep can raise your diabetes risk. If you already have diabetes, sleep loss can undermine blood sugar control. Poor sleep worsens diabetes and may even help cause it. Alway have a carb and a protein B-4 bedtime to balance your blood sugar. Also get some sunshine during the day. Sunshine drives your body to produce melatonin, which is needed for sleep! Happy zzz's

A big wake up call for me, I generally have trouble sleeping since I work 3rd shift at a hotel.
