Sedentary behaviour associated with type 2 diabetes

25 Apr 2016Registered users

The findings of a large prospective cohort study suggest that sedentary behaviour increases the risk of developing metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. When the data were analysed, increased sedentary time was associated with both metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. An extra hour of sedentary time was associated with 22% increased odds of type 2 diabetes and 39% increased odds of metabolic syndrome, independent of high-intensity physical activity.
