Methods: Data were from a cross-sectional survey conducted in Jinan, China between September 2013 and November 2014. A total of 1008 children and adolescents aged 6-17 years were included. Sleep duration was self-reported by participants and categorized as normal or short (<9 h in children aged 6-12 years or <8 h in adolescents aged 13-17 years) according to the recommendations of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. MetS was defined based on the modified criteria of the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III.
Results: After adjusted for sex, age, parental education levels, and midpoint of sleep, compared with normal sleep duration, short sleep duration was associated with increased odds of MetS (odds ratio [OR]: 1.79, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.09-2.95) and abdominal obesity (OR: 1.60, 95% CI: 1.14-2.25). In the subgroups stratified by age and sex, compared with normal sleep duration, short sleep duration was associated with increased odds of abdominal obesity (OR: 2.34, 95% CI: 1.07-5.13) in girls aged 6-12 years; short sleep duration was associated with increased odds of MetS (OR: 2.49, 95% CI: 1.06-5.84), abdominal obesity (OR: 2.30, 95% CI: 1.10-4.82), and high TG (OR: 2.63, 95% CI: 1.11-6.21) in boys aged 13-17 years.
Conclusions: Short sleep duration associated with higher odds for MetS in Chinese children and adolescents. Interventions to improve sleep duration could help prevent and control MetS among children and adolescents.
