Japanese researchers found that having type 2 diabetes for at least 10 years and a glycosylated hemoglobin level of at least 7% at baseline, working at least 60 hours/week, skipping breakfast and eating late evening meals were associated with suboptimal glycemic control among male workers, while female workers with suboptimal glycemic control were more likely to use insulin and oral hyperglycemic agents and have a glycosylated hemoglobin level of at least 7% at baseline. The findings in the Journal of Diabetes Investigation were based on 478 workers, ages 20 to 40.
