Obstructive sleep apnoea in obese adolescents and cardiometabolic risk markers
Watson SE, Li Z, Tu W, Jalou H et al
What this study adds
Obstructive sleep apnoea is linked with greater cardiometabolic risk markers in obese adolescents.
Fasting insulin and homeostasis model assessment-insulin resistance may be especially linked with obstructive sleep apnoea among obese male Hispanic adolescents.
The relationship between obstructive sleep apnoea and cardiometabolic abnormalities in obese adolescents should be considered when evaluating patients found to have obstructive sleep apnoea.
