Abstract

In recent years, short sleep duration has been proposed and received attention as a modifiable factor of obesity. Observational studies on the relationship between sleep duration and obesity in children and adolescents in the Asian region have been carried out. This study aims to determine the relationship between short sleep duration and obesity in children and adolescents in Asia. This study used a meta-analysis method. Search for articles using the Pubmed, Proquest, Science direct and Google Scholar databases. Article search is limited to research in English, publications from 2000 to 2020 and free full text articles. Data is processed using the Revman 5.3 application. There were 12 research articles that were systematically reviewed from 1,281 identified articles. Ten of these articles were included in the meta-analysis. The results of the study proved that there was a significant relationship between short sleep duration and obesity in children and adolescents with a pooled OR of 1.15 (95% CI: 1.04-1.28), and an analysis of the age subgroup also showed the same results as the pooled OR. 1.17 (95% CI: 1.02-1.35) in the age group before 3-4 years and combined OR 1.29 (95% CI: 1.14-1.48) in children aged 6-12 years. Avoiding short sleep duration can be considered as one way to reduce the risk of obesity in children and adolescents.
