Women sit more easily with diabetes

8:19 PM

Women are less active, sit too much are at risk for diabetes.

According to research by British scientists, women who sit more than 7 hours per day at risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those who increased movement.

That is the findings of a group of scientists from the University of Leicester (UK). The study examined the blood of 505 men and women participated, with ages from 59 upwards. The woman said to have sat from 4-7 hours a day and the men sit 4-8 hours per day. Results showed that, in the blood of women sat many have high levels of chemicals indicating the body is developing diabetes.

Besides, the study participants were asked to perform more tests to measure levels of certain chemicals in the blood to find out the relationship with the development of diabetes.

Accordingly, these women often have the longest sitting high blood insulin levels - a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels in the body. When high blood levels of insulin in the body to prove that they are becoming resistant to this hormone and diabetes are starting to develop.

However, these results are not true in men. Therefore, the scientists said: Compared with men, women are more likely to have more negative effects of sedentary habits. The researchers said that the reason there are differences between men and women on this issue is because women tend to eat more snacks while sitting man, or because men tend to engage in work health promotion activities at other times more often than women.

In fact, many patients with type 2 diabetes do not know they carry the disease but because they do not recognize the symptoms as fatigue, thirst, frequent urination, recurrent yeast infections and delayed wound healing.

The researchers said: "This study aims to provide additional new evidence to indicate the limits of time sitting, regardless of physical activity, how have adverse impact on insulin resistance chronic inflammation and the low level of women ".

Recognize early signs of type 2 diabetes:

- Frequent thirst and urination: When excess glucose builds up in your blood, fluids are collected from the tissue. This can make you thirsty. As a result, you may drink and urinate more than usual.

- Constantly hungry: Without enough insulin to move sugar into your cells, muscles and organs become depleted your energy. This triggers intense hunger.

- Weight loss: Despite eating more than usual to relieve hunger, but you can still lose weight.

- Fatigue: If your body cells are deficient in sugar, you may become tired and irritable.

- Blurred vision: If your blood sugar is too high, fluid may be pulled from your eyeballs. This may affect the ability to focus and a clear view of the eye.

- People with diabetes are also prone wounds sores, frequent infections. And this wound healing than normal by type 2 diabetes affect the ability to heal wounds and fight infections in the body.

Also, some people with type 2 diabetes have patches of dark skin which, especially in areas prone to multiply, for example in the armpits and neck. This condition, called acanthosis nigricans, may be a sign of insulin resistance.
