The link between excess weight and sleep apnea is well established.
People who are overweight, are more likely to have extra tissue in the back of their throat.
Which can fall down over the airway and block the flow of air into their lungs, while they sleep.
Losing weight, can yield real results!
Half or more of the people who try CPAP don’t stick with the treatment.
Research has found that losing just 10% of body weight, can have a big impact on sleep apnea symptoms. In some cases, losing a significant amount of weight could potentially even cure the condition.
The only sure way to rid yourself of the condition for good is to either lose weight or have surgery to remove the excess tissue from the palate of your throat.
