Does Stress Lead To Diabetes?

Chronic stress has a number of adverse effects on the human body. You age faster and are sick more often when dealing with permanent stress. Now, as Huffington Post reports, a study has revealed that for men, the chances of also developing diabetes is about 45-percent higher.

Researchers even took into account other typical factors that lead to diabetes, such as high blood pressure and advanced age, but still saw these profound results. However, this particular study fails to make a distinction on how diabetes and stress are related. Rather, it simply finds that they do effect each other.

Diabetes is a growing problem, particularly in the U.S. It is estimated that one in three people could be affected by 2050.
