Sleep shortening during pregnancy may alter the mother’s environment, affecting the offspring. Thus, the present study evaluated the metabolic profile of female offspring from sleep-restricted rats during the last week of pregnancy. Pregnant Wistar rats were distributed into two groups: control (C) and sleep restriction (SR). The SR was performed 20 h/day, from 14th to 20th day of pregnancy. At 2 months, half of the offspring were subjected to ovariectomy (OVX); the others, to sham surgery. Studied groups were Csham, Covx, SRsham and SRovx. Cholesterol (HDL, LDL and C-total), triglycerides (TG) and glucose and insulin tolerance tests (GTT–ITT) were evaluated at 8 months. RSsham presented higher values of TG, while SRovx presented higher TG, LDL and C-total. Basal glucose concentration was increased in SRsham and SRovx. These data suggest that SR during pregnancy may be a risk factor for the development of diseases in adult female offspring.
