Sleep duration and plasma leptin concentrations in early pregnancy among lean and overweight/obese women: a cross sectional study


Early-pregnancy short sleep duration is predictive of gestational diabetes and preeclampsia; mechanisms for these associations are unknown. Leptin, an adipocyte-derived peptide involved in regulating food intake and energy expenditure, may play a role in these observed associations.
