Type 2 diabetes means that the human pancreas does not produce enough insulin to control blood sugar levels.
Out of time, uncontrolled blood sugar levels can pose serious health risks, such as an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.  It is well understood that reducing some sugars and beverages may help to keep blood sugar levels on hold.
Surprisingly, studies have found that just an hour on the screen of a phone or tablet at night can also lead to increased sugar consumption
Teams from the University of Strasbourg and the University of Amsterdam examine the effects of blue light – the light produced from devices – and its effects on the regulation of blood sugar.
As reported by Diabetes.co.uk, there has previously been artificial light associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes and other health conditions, which is thought to occur because it disrupts the circadian rhythms of the body.
The study involved exposing male rats to an hour of blue light in the evening, then measuring food intake and glucose tolerance the next day.
The rats used in the study were daytime, meaning that they were awake during the day and fell asleep at night.
The following day, the animals were given the opportunity to choose nutritionally balanced food (standard rodent food), water, lard and sugar water.
Researchers found that an hour of blue light was enough time for rats to drink more sugar water at night than at night; they were not exposed to blue light.
The researchers explained that this connection may exist because the retina is sensitive to light transmitted by the devices and sends information to the part of the brain that controls the appetite.
It is said that these findings suggest that people who use phones, tablets and laptops at night may be more prone to sweet snacks.
The author of the leading study, Anayanci Masís-Vargas, stated: "Limiting the time we spend in front of screens at night for the moment is the best measure to prevent the harmful effects of blue light.
"In case you need to be exposed to devices at night, I would recommend the use of night-time applications and features on devices that turn screens more orange and less blue, or use goggles to filter blue light already on the market. "
According to Diabetes.co.uk, drinking alcohol can also affect blood sugar levels up to several hours after stopping drinking.
Other factors that can affect blood sugar regulation include: [1
According to the NHS Exercise are an effective way of lowering blood sugar levels.
"You have to aim for 2.5 hours of activity per week, "the health body recommended.
This adds:" You can be active anywhere as long as what you do leaves you breathless. "
This can be:  Walking fast
