An excess risk of gastric ulcer (GU) (ICD-8: 531) has formerly been found in shift workers and ex-shiftworkers but little is known about the risk of GU associated with other forms of non-daytime work.
This study deals with associations between non-daytime work and GU.
A fixed cohort of 122 116 men in occupations in which at least 20% had non-daytime work and a reference group of 593 281 men in occupations with daytime work only, was followed in the National Inpatient Register for first discharges with GU as the principal diagnosis.
For men with daytime work only we found a steep inverse association between GU and employment status.
