Depression and Wider Waist Linked to Sleeping Problem in People With HIV

    Factors Linked to Insomnia in People With HIV
    Figure 1. Depression raised chances of insomnia almost 17 times in a study of 243 people with and without HIV. Higher waist size almost tripled the odds of insomnia, while each additional year of schooling lowered the odds 20%. Illegal drug use raised the odds of insomnia 8 times, though this association fell short of statistical significance (adjusted odds ratio 8.07, 95% confidence interval 0.91 to 74.41, P = 0.06).
    Impact of Increased Waist Size in People With HIV
    Figure 2. Increased waist size raised chances of insomnia, loud snoring, poor daytime function, and daytime sleepiness in a study of 193 adults with HIV and 50 without HIV.
