Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the moderating role of anxiety in the links between sleep and insulin resistance (HOMA-IR). The current study used a sample of 420 participants from a subset of the PSQI Midus II Biomarker Project in 2012-2017. The participants reported sleep problems, anxiety levels, and blood assessments of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR). The findings of this data indicate a significant moderating role of anxiety in the effects of sleep on HOMA-IR.
