Women who work long hours are more likely to develop diabetes. Higher stress can also disrupt sleep and lead to poorer mental health, which in turn can contribute to changes in weight and insulin levels, and contribute to diabetes.

Orfeu Buxton, a professor of bio-behavioural health at Penn State who was not involved with this particular study, but has done similar research, was quoted by CNN as saying that another factor possibly driving this risk is that when women work a lot, in addition to the stress, there is less time for self-care. The study claims the long hours causes people to eat unhealthy food, which can lead to the condition.

The study was supported by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences.

Overtime work may have financial rewards, but findings of a new study have revealed long hours at work may have serious consequences particularly to women. "The only thing women don't do more of is watching TV and exercising", Smith added.

Type 2 diabetes is on the rise.

By the year 2030, it is expected that diabetes among the adults across the globe will soar to 439 million.

An earlier study showed that being overweight is a big risk factor that can influence the development of the lifestyle disease, and losing weight can help reduce diabetes risk.

The comments from Diabetes UK after a poll of 1,000 Britons found many were not able to name any of the risky complications associated with the disease.

Previous studies on this connection between risk of diabetes and longer working hours were only conducted with data only from male participants. Workplace factors included number of weeks worked, shift work, primarily active or sedentary work, and number of weeks worked.

Long work hours did not increase the risk of developing diabetes among men.

The results showed that overworking among women was associated with 63 per cent of higher risk of diabetes among women where as incidence of diabetes in men was found mainly among older age groups, and those who were obese.

It should be noted, though, that the study could only show an association between long work hours and diabetes; it wasn't created to prove a cause and effect.

However, the team also found that for women, working more hours significantly increased the risk of developing diabetes.

He said many things might account for the gender difference, including family-work responsibilities, sleeping problems, depression and the perception of a high total workload from jobs and non-paid work at home. The effect, however, was not found in women who work 30 to 40 hours per week, suggesting that this amount of work may curb the risk of the disease.
