||Markers of insulin resistance in day and shift workers aged 30-59 years
||Oct. 2002, Vol.75, No.8, p.562-568. 40 ref.
||To examine relationships between shift work and markers of insulin resistance (IR), a cross-sectional study was carried out, involving 2,824 day and 826 shift workers. All the subjects were male blue-collar workers aged 30-59 years. Four IR markers were checked. Data concerning the specifics of the job, work schedules and lifestyles were based on self-administered questionnaires. The prevalence of each IR marker was compared between the two worker groups, after adjusting for age, body mass index, job, drinking, smoking and exercise. It was found that the IR syndrome was associated with shift work in workers younger than 50 years. Furthermore, these relations may be underestimated due to broad definitions of shift work and healthy-worker effects.
