Abstract

[Extract] Inadequate sleep is associated with a range of adverse outcomes, such as increased risk of cardiovascular metabolic and endocrine problems in addition to obesity and impaired cognition [1]. However, the existing literature has mostly used 'sleep duration' as the main measure of sleep adequacy. Emerging evidence from epidemiological studies indicates that other dimensions of sleep, ie, sleep quality and pattern, also play important roles in the biochemical pathways related to glucose metabolism [2].
