According to the study, for people who are obese, do not exercise, or are overweight, it is recommended that they exercise at night to have a better rate of blood sugar control.

The researchers conducted the survey on 186 participants. Half were women, with a mean age of 46.8 years and body mass index (BMI) of 32.9 kg/m².

In addition, all participants had at least one metabolic deficiency, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, insulin resistance, or blood sugar problems.

Using wrist-worn accelerometers and continuous glucose monitors, the researchers monitored physical activity and blood sugar levels for two weeks.

The scientists divided the participants into four groups based on the time they did physical activities. To formulate the study's conclusions, the researchers analyzed data related to day, evening, and mixed training.

Thus, the study found that participants who decided to train at night experienced a significant improvement in blood glucose levels in the following days compared to those who trained during the day.

The results were better for people with diabetes.

According to the study, exercising during the day also reduces blood sugar levels. However, the effect is less compared to training at night.

However, since this is a new study, researchers were unable to determine a causal relationship between night training and lower blood glucose. Furthermore, results may vary between different populations, including older adults and people already diagnosed with diabetes.
