Waking up late in women increases the risk of diabetes

Late-night habits increase diabetes risk in women, Boston study finds.

Between 2009 and 2017, researchers at Brigham and Women Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, examined data from 64,000 middle-aged nurses to see which ones were more likely to have diabetes.

According to the review, women who sleep late at night and wake up late in the morning are more likely to develop diabetes than women who wake up early in the morning.

According to experts, women who sleep late are also more likely to adopt other bad lifestyle habits, such as less exercise.

These nurses provided information on their sleep patterns, diet, weight, BMI, number of hours of sleep, tobacco and alcohol use, and physical activity levels.

To assess whether the women had diabetes, the researchers also looked at their medical histories.

Sixty-five percent of women in the study were morning chronotypes (early sleepers and early risers). And 11 percent of evening include chronotype (evening-hour sleepers and late-night sleepers). The rest were classified as intermediate, meaning that neither the morning chronotype nor the evening chronotype applied to them.

According to the data, the evening chronotype was associated with a nineteen percent higher chance of developing diabetes.
