“Night Owls” with Prediabetes Have Higher Chances to Gain Weight
A new study finds that people with prediabetes who prefer evening activities and go to bed late have higher chances to gain weight than early risers with the same condition.
A team of researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine examined 2,133 people with prediabetes aged 64 years on average. Scientists assessed their preferences for going to bed late and waking up early, respectively.
Dr. Sirimon Reutrakul, an associate professor of endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism, says: “Timing and duration of sleep are potentially modifiable […] People can have more regular bedtimes and aim to have more sleep, which may help reduce BMI and the potential development of diabetes in this high-risk group.”
