Abstract

Both short and long sleep duration have been consistently studied as a risk factor for obesity, hyperglycemia and hypertension. In this cross-sectional study, we provide an updated analysis of the Health Examinees (HEXA) study on the association between sleep duration and metabolic syndrome (MetS) occurrence among Koreans age 40-69 year olds. A total of 133,608 subjects (44,930 men, 88,678 women) were enrolled in the HEXA study 2004-2013. Sleep duration was categorized into 4 sleep categories (< 6 h, 6 to < 8 h, 8 to < 10 h, ≥10 h). MetS criterion was based on the National Cholesterol Education Program, Adult Treatment Panel III. Logistic regression was used to calculate adjusted odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). Compared with individuals sleeping 6 to < 8 h per day, less than 6 h of sleep was associated with MetS (multivariable adjusted OR: 1.12, 95% CI: 1.05-1.19) and elevated waist circumference (1.15, 1.08-1.23) among men; with elevated waist circumference (1.09, 1.04-1.14) among women. Greater than 10 h of sleep was associated with MetS (1.28, 1.08-1.50) and elevated triglycerides (1.33, 1.14-1.56) among men; with MetS (1.40, 1.24-1.58), elevated waist circumference (1.14, 1.02-1.27), elevated triglycerides (1.41, 1.25-1.58), reduced high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) (1.24, 1.12-1.38), and elevated fasting glucose (1.39, 1.23-1.57) among women. Less than 6 h of sleep is associated with elevated waist circumference among both men and women and with MetS among men only. Greater than 10 h of sleep is associated with MetS and elevated triglycerides among both men and women and with elevated waist circumference, reduced HDL-C, and elevated fasting glucose among women only.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 565. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 22 July 2021.
All research outputs
#26,957
of 20,048,249 outputs
Outputs from BMC Public Health
#32
of 13,049 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#783
of 294,651 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Public Health
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 20,048,249 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 13,049 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 13.5. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 294,651 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
