    Abstract

    Sleep disorders are a common problem in pediatrics with a prevalence of about 30% and several studies have found a link to nutritional status. However, in Colombia this relationship has not been reported. Objective: To assess the relationship between the frequency of sleep disorders and nutritional status in children and adolescents in Bogotá, Colombia. Methods: A cross-sectional study of 3,330 children and 3,391 adolescents (58.2% female, average age 12.7±2.3 years, weight 45.2±12.1 kg and BMI 19.9±3.5 kg/m2) between the ages of 9 and 17 in Bogotá, Colombia. The BEARS questionnaire (B=Bedtime Issues, E=Excessive Daytime Sleepiness, A=Night Awakenings, R=Regularity and Duration of Sleep, S=Snoring) was applied in Spanish and measurements of weight, height and body mass index (BMI) were taken as an indicator of nutritional status. Results: 29.9% of those evaluated were overweight and obese (35.0% in women and 23.2% in men, p<0.01). The average number of hours of sleep during weekdays and weekends was 8.1±2.0 h and 9.5±2.4 h, respectively. Sleeping and daytime sleep problems were the most prevalent sleep disorders among obese vs. normopeso school children with values of (21.55 vs. 12.2, p<0.01) and (34.8 vs. 26.2%, p<0.01), respectively. Conclusion: Sleep disorders are related to alterations in nutritional status in the sample studied. Strategies that improve sleep quantity, quality, and schedules should be considered when designing interventions to combat obesity.
