Sleep Linked to Mood Disturbance and Poor Quality of Life in the Obese

Can lack of sleep be associated with a bad mood? A new study from the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom shows that poor sleep quality is strongly associated with mood disturbance and lower quality of life among people with extreme obesity. Results from the study showed that 74.8% of participants were poor sleepers, and their mean self-reported sleep duration was only six hours and 20 minutes. Fifty-two percent of study subjects were anxious, and 43% were depressed. After controlling for age, sex, hypertension, diabetes and obstructive sleep apnoea, sleep quality and daytime sleepiness were significantly associated with mood disturbance and quality of life impairment.
