Washington: Men who reported permanent stress have a significantly higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes than men who reported no stress, according to a study by the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.The finding is based on a 35-year prospective follow-up study of 7,500 men in Gothenburg.Since the 1970s, a large population based cohort study has been undertaken at the Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg to monitor the health of men born in Gothenburg between 1915 and 1925.Using this unique material, researchers are now able to show that permanent stress significantly increases the risk of type 2 diabetes.Of the total sample, 6,828 men without any previous history of diabetes, coronary artery disease or stroke were analysed. A total of 899 of these men developed diabetes during the follow up.
