Working Overtime Could Raise Women's Diabetes Risk

He also looked on with interest as dozens of bars of pink soap were laid out before him by factory workers

This 12-year study involved data on 7,065 people ages 35 to 74 in Ontario, Canada, from the 2003 Canadian Community Health Survey.

Instead, men who worked more hours tended to have a slightly lower risk of incident diabetes, although this wasn't statistically significant. They discovered that the women who worked persistently for forty-five or more number of hours a week had sixty-three percent higher risk of acquiring diabetes in comparison to those who only worked for thirty-five to forty hours per week.

They also were unable to explain the gender difference found in the study, although they did suggest that women might work longer hours in part due to household chores and family responsibilities, which could prompt a chronic stress response in the body, increasing the risk of hormonal abnormalities and insulin resistance.

A 2015 study done by University College London found that people working long hours are more likely to have a stroke, and the reasons might be connected to stress, physical inactivity, and higher alcohol consumption. A study performed in 2006 even brought to light similar risks.

Response: Promoting the regular workweek of 35-40 hours might be an effective strategy for preventing diabetes among women.

Based on weekly working paid and unpaid hours, the participants' were grouped into four time bands: 15-34 hours; 35-40 hours; 41-44 hours; and 45 or more hours.

They found that the women working continuously for weekly 45 or more hours were having almost 63 per cent higher risk of developing diabetes that that of the people working 35 to 40 weekly hours. Further, the researcher added, "It's important for us to study women". Of course, that would impact women's health. A research on Long working hours, occupational health and the changing nature of work organization concludes that 'Working long hours appears to be a risk factor for the development of shortened sleeping hours and difficulty falling asleep'. If anything, the incidence of diabetes tended to fall, the longer was a man's working week.

"Weight loss was the dominant predictor of reduced diabetes incidence", study researcher Richard Hamman, from the University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center, and colleagues wrote in the study.

Obesity and doing jobs that require an individual to sit in one place all the time also increase the likelihood of an individual having type 2 diabetes, the study said.
