Background: Inadequate sleep duration and sleep patterns have been associated with metabolic and circadian changes that promote obesity. The aim of this study was to applicate a translated version of the Adolescent Sleep Habits Survey to assess sleep habits and schedules in Russian obese adolescents.
Methods and Results: We questioned 87 adolescents aged between 15 and 17 years: 57 with obesity and 30 with a normal weight (NW). In total, some sleep problems were observed in 60.8% of obese respondents and 28.6% of NW participants (p=0.048). School-night wake times in obese adolescents did not differ significantly from the same variables in NW adolescents. School-night bedtimes and TST only in an obese sample were later and shorter, respectively, than in NW subjects (p<0.001 for both variables). Surprisingly, NW adolescents had a greater bedtime shift than obese peers (p<0.001). Finally, about half of obese respondents reported that they usually eat (62.7%) and watch TV (44.4%) in bed (p<0.001 for both variables compared with controls).
Conclusions: Applying a translated version of ASHS helps assess sleep habits and schedules in Russian adolescents, including obese patients.
