Sleep quality linked to gut microbiome biodiversity

Key clinical point: Better quality of sleep, but not duration of sleep, was associated with greater species richness and diversity of the gut microbiome.

Major finding: In fully adjusted models, greater daytime sleepiness was associated with lower richness and diversity of the gut microbiome on all indices (P = .01-.06).

Study details: An assessment of 482 individuals who participated in the Survey of the Health of Wisconsin.

Disclosures: The study was supported by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health through the Wisconsin Partnership Program.
