Sitting while watching TV, working, reading or for any other reason may significantly increase risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to new research published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
In this study, scientists looked at how long people sat and compared that to long-term risk of type 2 diabetes. They found that those that sat the longest had higher markers of diabetes-causing compounds in the body, including the pro-inflammatory C-reactive protein.
The researchers also found that chronic sitting contributed to insulin resistance –the underlying cause of type 2 diabetes.
Surprisingly, sitting around did not have the same negative effects on men.
