Consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages and type 2 diabetes incidence in Thai adults: results from an 8-year prospective study
Fondness for sugar-sweetened beverages may promote the development of type 2 diabetes in women.
This study examined the influence habitual intake of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) has on the incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in Thailand. Researchers matched sugary beverage consumption frequency with type 2 diabetes diagnosis status in a cohort of nearly 40,000 Thai men and women over an 8-year period.
Researchers found a hike in type 2 diabetes risk in women, but not among men. "Our findings suggest that targeting SSB consumption can help prevent a national rise in the incidence of T2DM," the authors wrote in the Journal of Nutrition and Diabetes.
