A research conducted in Beijing, China has found that girls who got their periods at an early age are at greater risk of getting type-2 diabetes later on.

Carried out by researchers from Zhengzhou University, the new large-scale study looked at 15,346 postmenopausal women in rural China to investigate whether early menarche, which is a female's first period, is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.

Women who started their period age 14 or younger had a higher risk of type 2 diabetes compared to women who started their periods at age 16 or 17.

In addition to this, women who got late periods were found to have a lower risk of getting diabetic. With each year of delay, the risk of type-2 diabetes reduces by 6%.
