Sleep and health-related factors in overweight and obese rural women in a randomized controlled trial
- 427 Downloads
This secondary analysis describes sleep and health-related factors in healthy overweight and obese mid-life and older rural women enrolled in the” Women Weigh-In for Wellness” randomized clinical trial. The aim of the trial was to promote healthy behaviors and weight-loss. We analyzed demographic, anthropometric, and biomarker variables, self-reported measurements of sleep disturbance and pain interference, and objective 24-h sleep/wake patterns at baseline, 6 months, and the change over time. Although self-reported sleep disturbance reflected normal sleep, pain interference was slightly higher than normal. There were associations between higher self-reported sleep disturbance, pain interference and several other variables. Women who achieved 5 % or more weight loss exhibited positive associations between sleep, pain, and health-related factors. Weight loss and lower pain predicted lower self-reported sleep disturbance. Our results suggest that overweight and obese rural women who adopt healthy behaviors and achieve weight loss also may experience improved sleep and other health benefits.
