Time to talk to your boss about your work or maybe change jobs soon. Because if you are highly stressed at work then you’re more likely to develop diabetes.
A 12 year research in China done on 3,730 petroleum industry workers in China showed that workers who experienced increasing stressful tasks at work were 57% more likely to develop the illness.
Workers who experienced a decline in coping resources such as social support from friends and family or time for recreational activities were 68% more likely to develop diabetes.
According to the World Health Organization, diabetes will be the 7th leading cause of death by 2030. In 2014, 1 in 1 adults worldwide had diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes is the most common among people. This is associated with obesity and ageing. If left untreated, it can lead to nerve damage, amputations, blindness, heart disease and stroke.
To minimise complications of the disease, you might want to exercise, lose weight and have a healthy diet to control blood pressure.
So if you’re super stressed at work (like Limpeh), quickly talk to your boss…
