Abstract: The prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) in children and adolescents is increasing, which has been a serious risk to their current health and increased the risk of cardiovascular disease in adulthood. Sleep behaviors are important components of the body's metabolic regulation. There is growing evidence that sleep insufficiency, sleep disorders and circadian rhythm disturbances are associated with an increased risk of MetS in children and adolescents. This paper reviews the associations between sleep problems and MetS in children and adolescents and explores the underlying biological mechanisms, in order to provide a scientific basis for the implementation of public health interventions to reduce metabolic risk in children and adolescents.

Key words: sleep, metabolic syndrome, children, adolescents

摘要: 儿童青少年代谢综合征(MetS)患病率逐渐升高,严重危害其当前健康,增加成年期心血管疾病风险。睡眠行为是调节人体代谢的重要组成部分,越来越多的证据表明儿童青少年睡眠不足、睡眠障碍、昼夜节律紊乱与MetS风险升高有关。本文综述了儿童青少年睡眠问题与MetS的关联,并探讨潜在的生物学机制,为开展公共卫生干预,降低儿童青少年代谢风险提供科学依据。
