Evening Types Have Higher Diabetes Risk, Lifestyle Factors Play a Role

Chronotype, Unhealthy Lifestyle, and Diabetes Risk in Middle-Aged U.S. Women

This study was conducted among 63,676 middle-aged nurses from 2009 to 2017. It found that nurses who identify as evening persons, or “night owls”, tend to have unhealthier lifestyles and are at a higher risk of diabetes than those who are morning persons, or “early birds”. When factors like diet, exercise, weight, and other lifestyle choices were considered, the diabetes risk for evening persons went down, but it was still higher than for morning persons.
