Type 2 diabetes is condition where the body produces insulin, but their cells don’t use it as well as they should, resulting in spiked blood sugar levels. People with Type 2 diabetes have need to be extra careful about their diet. Not just their diets, the timing of their meals may have an impact on their blood sugar levels. According to a latest study published by the journal of Diabetic Medicine, people with Type II diabetes who eat breakfast later, are more likely to have a higher Body Mass Indices (BMI).According to the study, an ‘evening person’ is linked to higher body mass indices among people with Type II diabetes, and having breakfast later in the day is quite likely to drive this association.
Previous studies have found a strong link between obesity and type 2 diabetes. It has been found that having an ‘evening preference’, i.e people who wake up later and hit the bed late, may have an increased risk for obesity. But research is lacking regarding this phenomenon among people with Type II diabetes.
Researchers of the study, wanted to determine if morning or evening preference among people with Type II diabetes was associated with an increased risk for higher BMI too. The study also looked into what specific factors about evening preference contributed to the increased risk.
