Exposure to LED lights at night raises the risk of diabetes. Have a look on the story for all details on this matter.

In order to keep us awake and alert, bright lights decrease melatonin while triggering cortisol. Inadvertently, this results in insulin resistance and raises levels of hormones that are counter-regulatory, stressing the body. 

The anti-insulin hormones adrenaline, cortisol, and norepinephrine, according to Dr. V. Mohan, Chairman of Dr. Mohan's Diabetes Specialities Centre in Chennai

Have you ever been distracted while driving by neon-lit billboards, laser light shows at amusement parks or malls,........

 ........LED-lit building and complex facades, or extravagant string light displays during the holidays? 

It has now been discovered that nighttime exposure to artificial outside light (LAN) may increase your chance of developing diabetes by triggering aberrant hormone reactions.

Chinese researchers from Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine have discovered a link between elevated diabetes risk and LAN, which causes a synthetic sky glow.

They discovered that short-term exposure to LAN can change the profiles of hormones like melatonin and cortisol as well as mess with our circadian rhythms........

Therefore, nighttime bright light-induced physiological alterations disrupt glucose metabolism.

Researchers discovered further that the greatest exposure group to artificial LANs had a 28% higher incidence of diabetes than the lowest exposure group.

Additionally, they discovered that individuals in the lower exposure groups reported higher levels of physical activity and those in the higher exposure groups often had higher BMIs.
