- ObjectivesThis study was conducted in order to evaluate the association between the working hours ofKorean employees and the metabolic syndrome and the effects of long working hours onmetabolic syndrome based on the 5th Korean National Health and Nutrition ExaminationSurvey (2010-2012).
MethodsBased on the 5th Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2010-2012),4,456 Korean employees without shift work, aged over 15, who work 30 hours or more perweek were targeted in this study. The association between the general characteristics,including age, smoking, alcohol drinking, exercise, and the metabolic syndrome criteriadefined by International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and weekly working hours were analyzed.
In addition, the association between weekly working hours and the metabolic syndrome ofthe subjects stratified by gender was analyzed through multiple logistic regression analysesand generalized linear mixed model after adjusting the general characteristics. ResultsIn the results of stratified analysis by gender, in male subjects, in comparison with the 30-39weekly working hours group, there were no significant adjusted odds ratios to the otherworking hours groups. In female subjects, in comparison with the 30-39 weekly workinghours group, there were no significant adjusted odds ratios to the other working hours groups.
In addition, no trend associations were observed among weekly working hour groups in bothstratified genders.
ConclusionNo significant differences in prevalence of metabolic syndrome of the subjects stratified bygender were found according to weekly increasing working hours. However, due to somelimitations of this study, further prospective studies may be necessary for verification.
