Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This book chapter provides an overview of extant research and evidence on associations and effects of sleep in obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome (MetS). Specifically, the chapter describes the role sleep plays in the etiology of overweight-obesity, diabetes, and MetS. The chapter also describes the public health relevance of sleep in these three health outcomes and provides population and public health insights as to how improving sleep at the population level may impact the obesity, diabetes, and cardiometabolic disease epidemics in the United States. Lastly, the chapter describes evidence-based assessments and interventions of sleep disturbances that may stave off or better manage health risk.
