Link from WebMD, family/work safe . . .(well, unless you're burned out at work).

Interestingly, the article claims to not know why 'burned-out' workers were 84% more likely to get a Type-2 Diabetes diagnosis in the next five years.

While I suppose that's strictly true (i.e., they don't "know" in the double-blind placebo-controlled study sense), I'm willing to bet that stress-based eating will have something to do with it.

"I'm willing to bet that stress-based eating will have something to do with it."

I tend to agree it may be that people may have a predisposition for "burn out" for similar reasons they may have a predisposition for Type-2 Diabetes rather than one causing the other. I would venture that in certain cases people prone to burn out may be less proactive with carry over to eating and exercise. Just a thought. Then again it might be their job plain sucks.

It also occurs to me that those people who exercise hard probably control both job burnout and diabetes at the same time. (Lord knows I would have burned out at my job long ago, if not for CrossFit.)

The article indicates that they took "physical activity" into account, but I bet it was self-reported, which means that a 10-minute walk counted as "hard exercise".
