    Abstract

    Insufficient sleep, poor sleep quality and sleep disorders in middle-aged and older adults is associated with obesity, hypertension and diabetes. However, evidence for such associations In young adults (i.e. prior to the establishment of chronic diseases), is inconsistent. This thesis addressed this question using objective measures of sleep and sleep questionnaires in 1234 participants at 22-years of age from the Western Australian Pregnancy Cohort (Raine) Study. Dr. Hamidi showed a quarter of participants had insufficient sleep or poor sleep quality. There was, however, no evidence of any relationships between sleep characteristics and cardiometabolic risk factors including obesity, hypertension and diabetes.
