Fast Eaters May Have Higher Risk Of Type 2
Research presented at the International Congress of
Endocrinology and European Congress of
Endocrinology shows that people who eat fast have a 2.5-
times higher risk of Type 2 diabetes, compared with slower
“The prevalence of Type 2 diabetes is increasing globally
and becoming a world pandemic. It appears to involve
interaction between susceptible genetic backgrounds and
environmental factors,” study researcher Dr. Lina
Radzeviciene, of the Lithuanian University of Health
Sciences, said in a statement. “It’s important to identify
modifiable risk factors that may help people reduce their
chances of developing the disease.”
For the study, researchers examined the eating habits of 468 people without diabetes and 234
people who had just been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Everyone answered a questionnaire,
where they explained whether their eating habits were slower, faster, or the same as others. The
researchers also noted their waist and hip circumference, height and weight.
After adjusting for other factors like body mass index (BMI, a ratio of height to weight), smoking
status, diabetes and education, the researchers found that Type 2 diabetes risk seemed to be
linked with eating faster.
This is certainly not the first time research has suggested a link between eating speed and health
risks. A previous study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association showed that speed eaters
are more likely to be obese than slow-eaters.
And the faster people ate, the more their BMI rose – 2.8% for each “step” increase on the five-step
eating-speed scale (equivalent to an extra 4.3 pounds), researchers found.
