Sleeping at night increases the risk of developing diabetes, according to a new medical study.
Busy life has severely damaged the natural clock of our body. In the busyness of life, we are neglecting the important principles of health. After eating dinner, sleeping has become a part of the routine of most people nowadays.
Which are extremely harmful to health.
The report Published in the medical journal Diabetes Care, is by Richa Saxena, a senior author and PhD principal researcher at the Center for Genomic Medicine at MGH.
We decided to investigate whether late eating which usually causes melatonin levels to rise also interferes with blood sugar control he said.
The study included 845 Spanish adults who ate before going to bed late at night which had elevated melatonin levels which reduced their insulin levels and blood sugar due to eating late at night. Insulin works to lower blood sugar levels and its deficiency raises blood sugar levels.
High levels of melatonin and food intake can lead to impaired insulin secretion and affecting blood sugar levels in people who eat late. Researchers have found that eating late at night affects blood sugar. And it can lead to type 2 diabetes.
