Short sleep duration is associated with decreased serum leptin, increased energy intake and decreased diet quality in postmenopausal women.
Bottom Line: Women sleeping ≥8 hr also reported lower diet quality than the reference group (P = 0.02).Importantly, serum leptin did not confound these associations.These results provide evidence that sleep duration is inversely associated with serum leptin and dietary energy intake in postmenopausal women.
