Title : The relationship between sleep duration and Insulin resistance in non-diabetic Korean adults

Abstract:

As industrialization progresses in modern society, sleep time is getting shorter. As a result, sleep time is reported to be associated with chronic diseases such as metabolic syndrome and diabetes, and the importance of sleep is emphasized. Previous studies have shown that inappropriate sleep time increases the prevalence of diabetic and prediabetic stages. However, these studies have been conducted in the West, and in the East, there is a relatively lack of research on the correlation between sleep duration and insulin resistance. Recently, as westernization has been progressing in the East, it is necessary to study the correlation between sleep time and insulin resistance. The aim of this study is to examine the associations of sleep duration with insulin resistance in patients without type 2 diabetes using The Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. This cross-sectional study included 7646 Korean adults (3402 men and 4244 women) 19 to 64 years of age who participated in the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey between 2019 and 2020. Subjects were categorized into three groups based on self-reported sleep duration (<7, 7, or >7 h/d). We used homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) as indicators of insulin resistance. The association between sleep duration and insulin resistance was investigated using multivariable logistic regression analysis. A total of 7646 adults aged 19-64 years old were included in this study. Short sleep duration (<7 hours) was associated with increased odd ratios (ORs) for having high HOMA-IR, compared with normal sleep duration (OR=1.208, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.050–1.390, adjusted for age, gender, education, income, occupation, marital status, smoking, drinking and physical activity) Based on HOMA-IR, short sleep duration was significantly associated with insulin resistance in apparently Korean nondiabetic adults. An inappropriate sleep duration was associated with insulin resistance. This finding suggests that extending sleep duration may reduce diabetes risk.
