Abstract

LIGHT AT NIGHT (LAN) AND ROTATING NIGHT SHIFT: RISK FOR INSULIN RESISTANCE AND OTHER METABOLIC DISEASES

Anjum B., Verma N. S.*, Tiwari S., Naz Q. , Gautam S. and Mahdi A. A.

ABSTRACT

Background: Compromised Quality & Quantity of sleep, exposure of
light at night (LAN) and rotating night shift may be a novel risk factor
for type 2 diabetes, obesity & metabolic diseases due to interference
with diet, circadian metabolic rhythms, and lifestyle. Present study
aimed to investigate the risk of insulin resistance and metabolic
disorders in rotating night shift nursing professionals. Material &
Methods: In the present case-control study, 30 healthy nursing
professionals, aged 20-40 year, performed day and night shift duties
were randomly selected from the Trauma Center, GM and Associated
Hospitals, King George Medical University and 30 age sex matched day workers as controls
were also recruited. Results: Insignificant difference (p>0.05) found in fasting blood sugar
between night workers (78.38 +9.40) and controls (75.14+14.77). Fasting insulin level was
increased in night workers (4.05+ 2.45) than controls (2.75+ 2.53) and was statistically
significant (p<0.05). Insulin resistance was slightly increased among night workers as
compare to controls which was statistically significant (p<0.05). Conclusion: Light at Night
and rotating night shift is associated with increased risk of insulin resistance and lipid
disturbances making them more prone for metabolic diseases in future after several years of
night shift work.
