New study shows correlation between stress and type 2 diabetes.

Posted: Updated:

A new study finds that men with permanent stress are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes.

This is the finding of a 35–year–long study conducted by the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

The study monitored 7,500 men over a 35–year–long period.

At the end of the study, men who reported permanent stress had a 45% higher chance of developing type 2 diabetes.

Dr. Jaroslaw Aniszewski, M.D. agrees that there is some correlation between stress and the onset of type 2 diabetes, however, he says that other factors like poor diet and lack of exercise play a bigger role.

"You can imagine, 100, 200 years ago, type 2 diabetes was pretty much non–existent," says Dr. Aniszewski.  "And I don't think people were less stressed back then.  Life was pretty rough.

Dr. Aniszewski says multiple studies show exercise is the best way to relieve stress.
