Sleep Apnea and Weight Loss

Research conducted on overweight adults with sleep apnea found that among those who lost over 33 pounds, nearly 90% saw all symptoms of their sleep apnea disappear. They were also rewarded with remarkable improvements in blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Sleep Apnea and Weight Loss

For those who are overweight and suffering from obstructive sleep apnea (a nighttime breathing disorder in which the soft tissues at the back of the throat temporarily close during sleep), substantial weight loss could limit or even completely stop bouts of OSA. 

Research conducted on 72 overweight adults with sleep apnea found that of those who lost over 33 pounds during the course of the research, 88% showed no signs of the disorder. The disappearance of sleep apnea in these adults was also accompanied by drops in blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
