Impact of Sleep Duration on Obesity and the Glycemic Level in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

Abstract

RESULTSdThe HbA1c levels showed a quadratic association with sleep duration; namely, a shorter or longer sleep duration was associated with a higher level compared with a sleep duration of 6.5–7.4 h (P for quadratic trend ,0.001). This association remained significant after adjusting for potential confounders, including the total energy intake and depressive symptoms. Furthermore, additional adjustments for obesity, which also showed a U-shaped relationship with sleep duration, did not attenuate the U-shaped sleep-HbA1c association. A significant interaction between sleep duration and age or the use of insulin was observed for the HbA1c levels.
