Shift workers getting too little sleep at the wrong time of day may be increasing their risk of diabetes and obesity, according to researchers.

The team is calling for more measures to reduce the impact of shift working following the results of its study.

Researchers controlled the lives of 21 people, including meal and bedtimes.

The results, published in Science Translational Medicine, showed changes to normal sleep meant the body struggled to control sugar levels.

Some participants even developed early symptoms of diabetes within weeks.

Shift work has been associated with a host of health problems.

Doctors at Brigham and Women's Hospital, in the US, were trying to study its effects in a controlled environment.

Lower insulin levels

During this part of the study, sugar levels in the blood were "significantly increased" immediately after a meal and during "fasting" parts of the day.

The researchers showed that lower levels of insulin - the hormone that normally controls blood sugar - were produced.

Three of the participants had sugar levels which stayed so high after their meals they were classified as "pre-diabetic".

They also highlighted a risk of putting on weight as the body slowed down.

"The 8% drop in resting metabolic rate that we measured in our participants... translates into a 12.5-pound increase in weight over a single year," they wrote.

Known this for decades.

Growing up with migraines. If I don't get sleep, I'm gonna be in pain.

And also eating breakfast like a king/queen.

Do the above and you can't get fat.

Did you ever work nights? I did for 10 years. It was the weekly transition to night sleep on my days off (so I could have some daylight time) that I found was the hardest adjustment.

I didn't develop diabetes but many on my shift did. Sort of like gestational, only in some of these cases once they went back on day shift it went away.

Almost every country in the Middle East is awash in oil, and we have to side with the one that has nothing but joos. Goddamn, that was good thinkin'. Esso posted on 2012-01-13 7:37:56 ET

There's no way around it.

unless you have an extremely high metabolic rate.

Like a Russian Wolfhound for instance...they look like they're burning calories when they're just standing still....;}

Impossible. I even stopped 'cramming for exams' in college' cause it was such a waste of time.

My mind just shuts down. And if I push it, I get migraines guaranteed.

Besides, I found I could learn/do in 15 minutes at 4:30 AM

what it would take me two hours of frustration at 11 to 1 AM...;}
