Objective: Adiponectin plays an important role in the development of various lifestyle-related diseases suc. However, the determinants that affect adiponectin levels, including lifestyle and mental health factors, have still not been thoroughly investigated in workplace.

Method: Participants in this study were 17 full-time non-shift men workers (mean age, 44.898.35 years) with metabolic syndrome of a glass company in Japan. All were on no medication.Adiponectin, high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP),insulin and Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) were measured. The homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-score) was calculated. Participants completed self-administered questionnaires comprised of sociodemographic, lifestyle and GHQ (the General Health Questionnaire).

Results: In the studied workers, mean serum adiponectin level was 3.422.4g/ml and HOMA

score was 2.22.4. GHQ each score were Somatic symptoms 3.32.2,Anxiety2.32.2, Social dysfunction 1.31.7, Depressive symptoms1.62.5. Overtime working(hours/month) was 23.416.6. Sleep status(hours/day) was 6.10.9.Partial correlations analysis for serum adiponectin level, after controlling age, revealed a significant independent negative correlation between overtime working (r = -0.693, p = 0.009), anxiety(r = -0.603, p = 0.029). Further HOMA-score was significant correlated with overtime working (r = 0.624, p = 0.023).

Conclusions: These data suggest that increased overtime working may be significant independent risk for low serum adiponectin levels in men workers. Particularly, anxiety may influence for adiponectin levels. Moreover overtime working may influence for adiponectin levels and HOMA-score. Therefore, workplace and mental management is the intervention targets for decreasing risk for lifestyle-related diseases and cardiovascular disease in men worker.

Learning Objectives:
Objective: Adiponectin plays an important role in the development of various lifestyle-related diseases such as hypertension, obesity, type II diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, and metabolic syndrome, leading to the development of cardiovascular and vascular diseases. However, the determinants that affect adiponectin levels, including lifestyle and mental health factors, have still not been thoroughly investigated in workplace. Method: Participants in this study were 15 full-time non-shift men workers (mean age, 44.898.35 years) with metabolic syndrome of a glass company in Japan. All were on no medication. Adiponectin, high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), insulin and Fasting Blood Sugar(FBS) were measured. The homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-score) was calculated. Participants completed self-administered questionnaires comprised of sociodemographic, lifestyle and GHQ (the General Health Questionnaire). Results: In the studied workers, mean serum adiponectin level was 3.422.4g/ml and HOMA score was 2.22.4. GHQ each score were Somatic symptoms 3.32.2,Anxiety2.32.2, Social dysfunction 1.31.7, Depressive symptoms1.62.5. Overtime working(hours/month) was 23.416.6. Sleep status(hours/day) was 6.10.9.Partial correlations analysis for serum adiponectin level, after controlling age, revealed a significant independent negative correlation between overtime working (r = −0.693, p = 0.009), anxiety(r = -0.603, p = 0.029). Further HOMA-score was significant correlated with overtime working (r = 0.624, p = 0.023), triglyceride(r = 0.918, P < 0.001) and BMI(r = 0.596, p = 0.032). No significant correlations were observed between adiponectin and BMI, blood pressure and other factors. Conclusions: These data suggest that increased overtime working may be significant independent risk for low serum adiponectin levels in men workers. Particularly, anxiety may influence for adiponectin levels. Moreover overtime working may influence for adiponectin levels and HOMA-score. Therefore, workplace and mental management is the intervention targets for decreasing risk for lifestyle-related diseases and cardiovascular disease in men worker.
