According to the Huffington Post, a study led by Peter Smith, Ph.D., involved 7,443 men and women working for nine years in Ontario, Canada. From all the participants involved, none had a previous history of diabetes.
According to Smith, the stress changes affect the function of the immune system and hormone levels in the body. Stress is also vulnerable to influence health behaviors associated with risk factors for diabetes, such as diet and energy release rate.
Why does the results of the study only shows a correlation of job stress with increased risk of diabetes in women? Smith believes that it is related to the tendency of women to vent stress by intake of fatty foods and high sugar levels.
The conviction was in line with the findings of previous studies in Finland that showed women tend to have higher levels of emotional and uncontrolled eating when they feel tired, cynical, frustrated, and lose confidence in the heavy workload.
Appetite craze When Stress
The desire to put food in your mouth seems difficult to control during a bubbling emotions. Why?
A study reveals, in the short term, stress will suppress appetite. This is because the structure of the brain called the hypothalamus releases corticotropin hormone, which suppresses appetite. The brain also sends messages to the adrenal glands to pump the epinephrine (adrenaline) hormones, which fight hunger.
However, it is a different story when the stress continues. In the long term, the adrenal glands release the cortisol hormone which causes appetite to go beyond normal.
The study, published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, found that prolonged stress affects the ghrelin hormone, which triggers hunger. That is, those who experience long-term stress will generally see food to be much more tempting. Previously, it was also known that work pressure is bad for your heart.Recent search: woman stressed at workTagged with: stress diabetes, women stress diabetes, work stress diabetes,
