Several studies have suggested that individuals with long or short sleep durations are at greater risk for adverse outcomes relative to individuals sleeping 7-8 hours a night.
The mechanisms leading to these results have never been fully explained, but individual differences in how long an individual sleeps are usually considered to reflect lifestyle rather than disease.
Alternatively, individuals may sleep a particular amount because of characteristics of their sleep physiology.
In this study, we examined population-based data on the associations between sleep duration and several symptoms of sleep-related disease, reported snoring and daytime sleepiness.
