Early Benefits From Low-Energy Diet Treatment Of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea In Obese Men Can Be Sustained

June 1, 2011: 06:19 AM EST
A Swedish study found that preliminary improvements in obstructive sleep apnoea (also apnea) after a low-energy diet can be sustained after one year in overweight men with moderate to severe degrees of the condition. Results of the single-center, prospective observational follow-up study showed that study subjects who lost the most weight or have severe sleep apnoea at the start of the study benefit most from the treatment. The study focused on 63 men, 30 to 65 years old, with a body mass index of 30-40 and moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnoea. They were treated with continuous positive airway pressure.
