Newly reported from the USA: Morning, Afternoon Exercise May Cut Diabetes Risk

Morning and afternoon physical activity are associated with a lower risk for developing type 2 diabetes, according to a study published online Sept. 20 in Diabetologia.

Caiwei Tian, from Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and colleagues examined the relationship between morning, afternoon, or evening physical activity and consistency (e.g., routine) and the risk for type 2 diabetes. The analysis included data from 93,095 U.K. Biobank participants (mean age, 62 years) free from type 2 diabetes who wore a wrist-worn accelerometer for one week.
