Sleep Duration May Affect Kidney Diseases’ Patient Daily Life

Sleep Duration May Affect Kidney Diseases’ Patient Daily LifeA new study indicates that sleep duration may influence the health-related quality of life experienced by individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD).

In patients with CKD, fatigue, lack of energy, and drowsiness are the most common symptoms that result in the poor health-related quality of life, a patient’s comprehensive perception of physical and mental health. To examine whether sleep duration may affect health-related quality of life in individuals with CKD, Kyu-Beck Lee, of Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul and colleagues examined data from 1910 adults in the Korean Cohort Study for Outcome in Patients with CKD, a study designed to identify risk factors related to CKD and its outcomes.

The team found that 7-hour sleepers had the highest health-related quality of life, based on survey scores. There was an inverted U-shaped relationship between sleep duration and health-related quality of life so that those who slept ≤5 hours/day or ≥9 hours/day had a lower health-related quality of life.

“Our findings suggest that short or long sleep duration is independently associated with low health-related quality of life in adults with CKD. Sleep duration is an important predictor of health-related quality of life in CKD,” said Dr. Lee. Additional studies are needed to determine whether promoting optimal sleep among patients may improve their health outcomes.
