Job stress doubles the risk of developing diabetes in women who have little or no control over what they do at work, according to a new Canadian study. The same does not apply to men.
According to Peter Smith, author of a study conducted for nine years by researchers at the Institute for Work and Health and the Institute for Evaluative Sciences in Toronto, men and women react differently to stress labor.
Smith suggests, as a possible explanation of the results, that women under stress may be more likely to resort to foods high in fat and sugar than men .
The main reasons given in the study to the increased risk for women are interruptions to the operation of the neuroendocrine and immune system and increasing or prolonging the release of the cortisol hormone and sympathetic reaction to stress , and changes in diet and energy expenditure that this implies, possibly as survival mechanisms.
The researchers looked closely at 7443 women working in the Canadian province of Ontario, without filing a prior diagnosis of diabetes. Results showed that 19 percent of diabetes cases in women were due to what is understood as ” little control over their work “, a higher percentage than factors such as smoking, drinking alcohol or a low level of physical activity, although lower than obesity.
