Sudden nocturnal death in type 1 diabetes (‘dead in bed’ syndrome) is thought to be due to ECG QT prolongation with subsequent ventricular tachyarrhythmia in response to nocturnal hypoglycaemia. We investigated this theoretical mechanism using continuous ECG and continuous glucose monitoring in a group of patients with type 1 diabetes. Twenty-five patients with type 1 diabetes (age 20–50 years) underwent two separate 24 h ECG and continuous glucose monitoring periods. Patients were fully… CONTINUE READING
