A new study suggests sleep apnea may be eliminated with weight loss.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – A new study suggests weight loss may help those who suffer with sleep disorders such as sleep apnea. As reported by HealthDay News, researchers have found that a ten percent loss of body weight could bring the problems into remission.
Lead study author, Gary Foster, with the Center for Obesity Research and Education at Temple University in Philadelphia, is quoted in the report as stating of the findings, “It’s been clear that obesity increases the risk of sleep apnea but less clear that if obese people or people with type 2 diabetes lost weight, it would result in significant improvements in their sleep apnea — and it did.”
More information about the study may be found in the Sept. 28 publication of the Archives of Internal Medicine.
