Diabetes type 2 disease is spreading like an epidemic around the world and now a major cause has been discovered.
Sleeping at night in a room where artificial light (bulbs, etc.) is spread, then the risk of getting infected with diabetes increases.
This was revealed in a medical study conducted in China.
A study of nearly100,000 Chinese citizens found that exposure to artificial lights during sleep at night was 28 per cent more likely to develop diabetes due to exposure to artificial lights during sleep at night. increases to.
According to research, there is a link between outdoor artificial lights and the risk of diabetes.
These artificial lights played a role in more than nine million cases of diabetes across China, the researchers said.
The researchers called it light pollution which is more common in urban areas.
The study examined medical data from more than 98,000 people and took into account risk factors such as body weight and family history.
The researchers then created different groups of these individuals, taking into account the rate of use of artificial lights at night in residential areas.
They discovered that the more artificial lights are used, the higher the risk of getting infected with diabetes.
The results of this study were published in the journal Diabetologia.
Earlier in early 2022, a study by Northwestern University in the UNITED States showed similar results.
In this study, it was reported that moderate light in the room during sleep damages the functions of the heart and veins, which increases insulin resistance.
The study found that sleeping in dim light just one night increases blood sugar levels and heart rate.
There is already evidence that daylight increases the speed of heartbeat, which prepares the body to deal with the challenges of the day.
The researchers said that our results indicate that a similar effect can be caused by light during night’s sleep.
The term insulin resistance is used when cells in our muscles, fats, and liver cannot react properly to insulin and use the glucose in the blood for energy.
When this happens, the pancreas starts making more insulin, which increases blood sugar levels over time
