Date:10/4/2011

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The benefits of a good night's sleep to overall health have long been reported. Now, new research has emerged relating to the role gender and weight management play in overall sleep patterns.  The abstract, Gender Differences in a Naturalistic Observational Study of Sleep and BMI, was presented during a poster session at the annual Obesity Society meeting in Orlando, Florida this week.

The observational study, which was conducted by the Northwestern University Comprehensive Center on Obesity and BodyMedia Inc., makers of body monitoring Armbands, sheds new light on the relationship between BMI and sleep between gender and weight classes. Results from the study provide additional insights into the differences between men and women's sleep times and how their weight can impact the amount of sleep they get.

The purpose of the study was to evaluate differences between genders and sleep duration across a wide range of BMI categories using information taken from users wearing the BodyMedia FIT™ Armband.  It represents one of the largest epidemiological studies to illustrate a link between BMI and sleep using actual measurements taken from the body.

Key findings:

  • Although there is wide variation, there are significant differences in mean sleep time between certain BMI categories.

  • Gender is an important factor in explaining the relationship between sleep and BMI.

  • Overall, people with higher BMIs had less sleep, but the increase in weight and sleep is more closely related in women than men.

  • Among adults in the BMI range of 18.5 to 40, women
