Sleep complaints played a role in predicting the development of metabolicsyndrome MetS in the general population. This cross-sectional survey wasperformed among elderly people age ≥ 65 years who underwent a healthexamination for senior citizens since March 2009 to November 2009. 1181 participantswere surveyed, including 433 men 36.7% and 748 women 63.3%. We aimed at theassociation between self-reported insomnia symptoms and risk factors of MetS inthe elderly population living in northern Taiwan. The modified National CholesterolEducation Program-Adult Treatment Panel III NCEP-ATP III was used forcriteria of MetS. Logistic regression examined the impact on the MetS and itscomponents according to individual insomnia symptoms and syndrome. The resultshowed that difficulty falling asleep DFA, a specific symptom of insomnia,was significantly associated with MetS OR: 1.42, 95% CI = 1.09 - 1.86. DFAincreased the risk of abdominal obesity, hyperglycemia, and hypertriglycemia.Frequent waking from sleep or dreamy increased the risk of abdominal obesity.Difficulty staying sleep increased the risk of hypertension. Other insomniasymptoms non-refreshing sleep were not associated with the increased risk ofany MetS factors. Insomnia symptoms, including DFA, difficulty staying sleep,and frequent waking from sleep or dreamy increased the odds ratio of riskfactors. Evaluating insomnia symptoms can help identify individuals that are atrisk of MeS.
