    Background. Previous sleep studies suggest that type 2 diabetes mellitus is associated with poor quality of sleep and sleep disorders. Aim. To evaluate sleep parameters and diurnal preference in type 2 diabetic patients, using a questionnaire. Methods. Ninety seven patients (aged 55.8±8.3, sex ratio 1:1), previously diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus, together with 102 controls (aged 47.1±10.5, sex ratio 1:1), without diabetes, completed a questionnaire containing the Romanian translation of the Composite Scale of Morningness, the Sleep Disorders Questionnaire, the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, the Pittsburgh Insomnia Rating Scale, the Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory, the Epworth Sleepiness Scale, the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test and the Beck Depression Inventory II (BDI). The study was cross-sectional, as we included subjects from outpatient and inpatient facilities. The recruitment process was based on handing invitation letters to patients consulting their physician, as well as to their acquaintances, using the snowball sampling. Participation was voluntary and anonymous.
