Longer Sitting Hours Could Put Women At The Risk Of Developing Type-2 Diabetes

A recent study has found that the women leading an inactive life are prone of being affected with type 2 diabetes. The findings of the study targets only women and not men. The study was conducted by the researchers of the University of Leicester.

For the study, the researchers analyzed the sitting of habits of 500 men and women. Blood tests were also taken for the better understanding of link between sedentary lifestyle and type 2 diabetes. During the study, the researchers found that women with longer sitting lifestyle had higher levels of insulin, of C-reactive protein and chemicals released by leptin, and interleukin6 in their body. All these factors are responsible for triggering type 2 diabetes.

Although the researchers have pointed out that women are at higher risk of being affected with diabetes, it is yet to be found out as to why men with longer sitting habits are not at the risk of being affected with diabetes.

The lead researcher of the study, Thomas Yates was reported as saying, “This study provides important new evidence that higher levels of sitting time have a deleterious impact on insulin resistance and chronic low-grade inflammation in women but not men and that this effect is seen regardless of how much exercise is undertaken”.

Thomas Yates further noted that women should avoid sitting for longer period as it is could push her to life threatening disease, type 2 diabetes. Meanwhile, it has been reported that a teenager, affected with type 1 diabetes, is asking the government to increase the funding of diabetes research so that a treatment to cure type 1 diabetes could be found.

It has been informed that a rally of 40 children would be seen at the parliament, asking the government to increase the funding for the research and to bring awareness among the public about the type 1 diabetes.
