Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 years ago):
The Dilantin side effects all went away after changing to a low-glycemic-index diet. Once blood sugar was under control, the hyperglycemia and everything else improved - memory, concentration, sleep quality, daytime sleepiness, anxiety, and depression.
The hyperglycemia was not detected by either fasting plasma glucose (FPG) or A1c, but only by a random postprandial glucose reading.
CPAP treatment for sleep apnea temporarily helped with daytime sleepiness and nighttime sleep quality, but the effect wore off after less than a year of consistent nightly CPAP use.
Paxil and Effexor treatment for anxiety and depression also helped for short times (less than six months per attempt) but long-term had no effectiveness.
The only lasting solution has been a low-carb/low-glycemic-index diet. As long as blood sugar was (unknowingly) out of control, all symptoms persisted.
