Weight Loss and Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a condition in which an individual simply ceases to breathe while they are sleeping and therefore careful monitoring or devices which can wake the individual or assist the individual in breathing are often necessary as the airway can become blocked while the individual sleeps, which causes the cessation in breathing.

Living with sleep apnea can be a terrifying experience, as individual are often liable to require intervention with symptoms, such as these devices that are worn while sleeping to measure and regulate the breathing symptoms that are associated with the disorder.

In the majority of cases where an individual is suffering from sleep apnea as well as being overweight, the leading treatment for the disorder is the recommendation of weight loss. In the majority of cases, patients that have been diagnosed with sleep apnea are recommended to lose at least ten percent of their body weight before choosing alternate, more invasive treatments for the condition. In the case that the weight loss has been successful, many patients are able to avoid the intervention from other invasive measures to control the sleep disorder which commonly affects the obese and can lead to other conditions.
