Short sleep duration and its association with energy metabolism
Obesity Reviews, 05/08/2012
Klingenberg L et al. – Although the authors found some evidence also in humans that suggests a possible effect on energy metabolism, the limitations of the studies make it difficult to draw conclusions on the effect of short sleep on energy metabolism under relevant free living conditions. To explore this area further, more studies using suitable methodology under relevant conditions to mimic real–life situations are needed.
