INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — More than 37 million Americans have diabetes, which is one of the leading risk factors for premature death.

If you’re one of those tens of millions and want to live longer, you might want to take a look at your nighttime eating habits.

Researchers in China assessed mealtimes in 4,642 people with diabetes who were at high risk of dying from heart disease. The results showed that the types of food eaten at different times of the day had a major impact on their health.

Diabetics who ate processed grains and meat at night were 1.54 and 1.83 times more likely to die of heart disease, respectively, compared to diabetics who ate only vegetables at night.

The research was published in the latest issue of Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.

“We observed that eating potatoes in the morning, whole grains in the afternoon, green vegetables and milk in the evening, and less processed meat in the evening were associated with better long-term survival in people with diabetes,” said the study’s co-author. , Dr. Qingrao Song in a Press release.

Quingrao went on to say that “nutritional guidelines and intervention strategies for diabetes should incorporate optimal consumption times for foods in the future.”
