PURPOSE: To explore the association of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with liver enzymes and lipid profile in Han Chinese subjects.
METHODS: A total of 172 Han Chinese subjects, 133 men and 39 women, aged from 18 to 69 years with an average body mass index (BMI) of (33.51±5.90) kg/m2 were enrolled and divided into three groups based on full-night polysomnography (PSG): severe OSA group (AHI>30 events/h), mild to moderate OSA group (5<AHI≤30 events/h) and control group (AHI<5 events/h). Liver enzymes and lipid profile were measured after an overnight fast. Measurements were compared among groups by one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). Stepwise multiple linear regressions were conducted to determine the independent linear correlation of liver enzymes and lipid profile with PSG parameters.
