ABSTRACT

<Objectives> Sleep duration and sleep quality are closely related to obesity, however there are few studies considering the Sasang constitution. This study is to investigate the relationship between sleep status and obesity according to Sasang constitution. <Methods> This cross-sectional research studied 2,672 participants (1,293 men and 1,379 women) using the Korean Medicine Data Center (KDC) of the KIOM. Sasang constitution was diagnosed by KS-15 questionnaire. Obesity was divided into two categories: general obesity was defined as Body Mass Index(BMI) ≥25 kg/m2, and abdominal obesity was defined as waist circumference ≥90 cm in men and ≥85 cm in women. Sleep quality was assessed using the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index. <Results> The distribution of the subjects was 56.9% for Taeumin and 43.1% for non-Taeeumin., Poor sleep quality increased both BMI and waist circumference in Taeeumin. In men Taeeumin, sleep duration was correlated with BMI, and sleep quality was correlated with waist circumference. The prevalence of obesity was significant difference according to sleeping duration in men Taeeumin, it was the highest at 6 hours of sleeping time. <Conclusions> Sleep duration and sleep quality was associated with obesity in Taeeumin. Especially, in men Taeeumin, adequate sleep duration was an important factor for prevention and treatment of obesity.
