Sitting Is Silent Contributor to Diabetes In Women

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.

    I am convinced that all your informations are very closed to the reality and that they help us an extrem natural and healthy way in our lifes to choose.
    Thank you for doing that with very good results.
    All the best to you from

  2. That’s a bit of a shocker! But, thinking about it, it does ring true. Those of us, either older and/or disabled, do tend to sit around more and we do tend to be also more liable to having diabetes 2. Ouch!

  3. Yes, something tells me that the major rise of sickness in our high-tech society is largely associated to sitting on our as*es and being too comfortable. I’ll bet that one of the best anti-oxidants going is moderate movement!

  4. Oh come on guys – there must be more to this story than that. Hypotheses, conjectures……why does it affect women more and how could it be a factor in insulin resistance?

    Not good enough to just give out the bare bones.

  5. Schoking revealation! So, what are we supposed to do; stand up/lie down while watching TV, or reading? wont that be absurd? And, why the different effects on men and women? It will be intresting to know.

  6. Yes sedentary life styles ruin your health,regards.

  7. This applies to anyone with a Sedentary lifestyle. As a matter of fact this can contribute to the deadliest of health problems known to humans.

  8. interesting,,but why only women,,,I am 66+ I eat sleep well, keep working out,doing every thing I was doing when 25, my energy level is grate,,,and very healthy

  9. Come on people use your imagination. What activity do men use more muscle power in than women?

  10. I'VE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT LIVING ON PLANET EARTH CAUSES DEATH, JUST BE READY WITH JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOUR. AMEN

  11. From an evolutionary point of view, it is not natural to sit for long periods of time on a regular basis…

  12. FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD.
    LIVING ON PLANET EARTH IS A MARVELOUS OPPORTUNITY TO PUT INTO PRACTICE WHAT JESUS CHRIST TAUGHT AND DEMONSTRATED! THEN YOU WILL OVERCOME SIN, SICKNESS AND DEATH AS HE TOLD YOU YOU WOULD. AND YOU WILL DO THE THINGS HE DID AND EVEN GREATER THINGS. DIDN'T HE SAY THAT? THE PROBLEM IS, DO YOU BELIEVE IT????

  13. Any sedantary lifestyle, for men or women, can have health consequences including heart problems, weight gain, diabetes etc. Just use common sense. Stay as active as you can. This article is waaaay to generalized to simply assume it effects one gender over another. Causation can be proven/disproven for many parameters in studies. Its how its ‘interpreted’ that matters. Stay active + eat whole/natural foods + happy mindset = being healthy. Hows that for a good formula :)!

  14. So are you saying you can’t sit too long to watch TV or reading, so how are you expected to do anything then? They say that relaxing is good for you, but now they’re saying the exact opposite. I think that this so-called fact is a load of baloney and we shouldn’t take any notice. We all have a lot of stress in our lives, let us have that one pleasure of relaxation, we deserve it – and it’s free too!

  15. This sounds like a stastical correlation rather than a causal relation. It would take years for an intensive study to rule out other factors; the article didn’t mention this happening. (It has been years since college stats but I still remember the main points.)

    I would like to see the results of a more in depth study.

  16. that is if it's done through the faith of jesus christ, not yours because it becomes works then EPH.2:8,9

  17. Because we are descendants from fallen man we are imperfect and our DNA has Sin ingrained within it and our limbic system accepts much of the rubbish taught to us as truth. There is only one truth and that is the I AM, The Door that leads to eternal life. His name is Yeshua and he came that we may have life and life in abundance. We are merely Complementary Medicine Practitioners to help the afflicted along the journey of life. However no matter what therapy we use, it is only ONE who can truly heal our hurts and disappointments that we ALL go through.

    Until we deal with the curses and bitterness within our own lives, we cannot expect healing to happen. When we utter curses on others and hold onto bitterness and un-forgiveness, we will not be free of contamination and our health will suffer…I know because I have had to come to that place myself.

    We are writing a book entitled 'Unlocking the Wombs and Tombs in our lives'.

    It deals with all of this stuff and how we can come to a place of forgiveness and healing…we need to start blessing others and the area's we live.

  18. Anyone who claims to follow Christ, demonstrates His good news: salvation from sin, suffering and death. Much needed right now here on earth…

  19. Oh for heavens sake.
    Sitting just keeps the heart rate at a nominal pace, engendering.
    lack of activity. Everyone knows that exercise and activity helps the whole body perform better. Evolution is a fact.

    How so many of you connect the bio-physical with "faith" is a bit much, in my view. This site is beginning to sound like a Sunday morning at the local (Dallas) Baptist church….

  20. •Green Tea Extract Boosts Pancreatic Insulin Production so while you’re watching tv drink some green tea.

  21. so long as you don't put your faith in your own faith?

  22. am really little bit confused that because one of my friends has conginantal problem from beginning. she has extra quality for all work. all the work she try to complete by sitting position. she has also Masters degree.so how could i accept the research result. though i know one or two sample is not enough for example.

  23. i also would like to see the results of a more in depth study.

  24. Amen to that. We are all appointed a time to die, except those that here when THE RAPTURE happens and they will be changed in a twinkly of an eye. I'm a Diabetic. The Doctors told me 10 years ago they would probably have to amputate my legs. Only problem is they forgot to ask JESUS. For a 57 year old I'm getting around pretty good! PRAISE JESUS!

    WITH THE LOVE OF OUR

    LORD JESUS CHRIST

    TY

  25. the begining of the 20th century the life expectancy was about 47 years, so quit bitching.
