Low resistance to stress in men can increase risk of type 2 diabetes
Washington, D. C. Jan. 14 - The new study has found that the low resistance to stress in men at age 18 years may increase the risk of type 2 diabetes in adulthood by up to 50 percent.
Researchers from Department of Medicine, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA, have shown that the psychosocial stress in adulthood is associated with a higher risk of type 2 diabetes can be possibly mediated by behavioural and physiological factors.
In this new study, the authors examined whether low stress resilience in late adolescence is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes in adulthood.
Research suggests that psychosocial function and ability to cope with stress may play an important long-term role in aetiological pathways for type 2 diabetes.
Additionally, study found that people who are more stressed are more likely to exhibit unhealthy behaviours such as smoking, unhealthy diet and lack of physical activity, and it could be these behaviours that form most of or part of the increased risk of diabetes found in men with lower stress resistance.
