People with type 2 diabetes may benefit from exercising in the afternoon, study shows

(CNN) — People with type 2 diabetes should exercise in the afternoon instead of the morning to manage their blood sugar, a new study has found.

“In this study, we (have) shown that adults with type 2 diabetes had the greatest improvement in glucose control when they were most active in the afternoon,” co-corresponding author Dr. Jingyi Qian, from the Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders at Massachusetts’ Brigham and Women’s Hospital, said in a statement.
