Re: [IP] Sleep Study Discrimination



I also had a sleep study done a few months ago. Was not on pump yet as I
just started on pump yesterday. The was no problem with me being a diabetic.
In fact I did go a little low and the lady doing the study gave me some
juice they had in the frig. I don't know about this place but where I went
all the people there were ex floor nurses. About doing this in a medical
facility. My neighbor had one done like this and he had to stay up all night
and they did it during the day. Not good because it is not his natural sleep
time. Sounds like this people had a problem.
