Diabetic Patients Who Eat Less Processed Food at Night Can Live Longer: Study

Diabetes is increasing at an alarming rate in the United States. It is a chronic health condition that can affect anyone at any age, so it is vital to understand how to reduce the risk and reduce the symptoms.

New research has found that the time of day when people with diabetes eat certain foods may impact their health. The study published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism suggests timing may be more important to a diabetic’s well-being than portion size and calories.


The biological clock is a natural internal clock that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. Researchers believe that people with diabetes should consume foods at certain times, following the biological clock, which could help to improve symptoms and lengthen lifespan.

For the study, researchers analyzed data from 4,642 people with diabetes from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, focusing on their risk of dying from heart disease. It was found that those who consumed potatoes or starchy vegetables in the morning, whole grains in the afternoon, and dark vegetables in the evening were less likely to die from heart disease. Additionally, people who consumed a lot of processed meats in the evening were less likely to die from heart disease. Overall, processed foods play an important role in heart health in people with diabetes. 

It is well known that processed foods are an unhealthy choice, but they could be deadly for those with diabetes who eat them in the evenings. Foods are meant to fuel the body with good vitamins and minerals, but processed foods are often loaded with sugar, sodium, and unhealthy fats.
