The university adult population shows health difficulties related to their glucose level and variations in the sleepwake
relationship, which an early diagnosis will allow preventive actions, for which we seek to identify the association of anthropometric parameters, blood glucose level and chronotype of adults from the city of Popayán-Colombia; Through a correlational descriptive study with 182 university adults between 36 and 68 years old, evaluating anthropometric parameters, determining the chronotype with the Horne-Ostberg questionnaire and measuring capillary glycemia. In the same way, normality analysis and verification of the correlation were performed using the Pearson statistic coefficient (p <0.05). As results, normality of the anthropometric parameters was found, with indication of pre-diabetics, and an intermediate chronotype, the correlation analysis showed moderate associations of the glycemia levels with the anthropometric parameters, but low association with the chronotype. It was possible to conclude that the women presented alterations in blood glucose levels as with the Body Adiposity Index, with intermediate chronotype registration.
