Timing of Exercise on Diabetes and Sleep
Older adults who have overweight or obesity, low physical activity, and poor sleep may be at a higher risk for developing diabetes. Research is needed to learn if exercise in the morning or afternoon/evening is better at reducing the risk of diabetes and improving sleep. The information we gain may aid in the prevention and treatment of diabetes for future patients.
