Night Shift Workers Here is an Alert: It May Raise Your Diabetes Risk.....

  • Working the night shift increases women’s risk of type 2 diabetes
  • Working a night shift periodically for three years increased diabetes risk by 20 percent, and this increased to 58 percent among those who worked the night shift for 20 years or more
  • Irregular sleep-wake cycles may interfere with your body’s blood-sugar metabolism, leading to insulin resistance and increased blood-sugar levels, both of which are linked to diabetes
  • If possible, avoid night shift work to protect your health. If you can’t avoid it, keep to a schedule so your body’s clock will eventually adjust to your sleep/wake cycle
  • When sleeping during the day, it’s important to keep your bedroom as dark as possible to simulate nighttime. Your body releases important hormones in response to exposure to light and darkness
