Does Weightloss Help With Sleep Apnea?
In this short video, Dr. Paul Rodeghero answers a question regarding the impact of losing weight on OSA.
“The question is: Can losing weight help with sleep apnea?
Absolutely, OSA gets a little bit better if you lose weight! So if you’re significantly overweight and you lose maybe 25 pounds or more, your airways will open up a little bit, and you could increase or increase your airways enough that your sleep apnea can get 10, 20, 25% better.
Will it make the apnea go away? Absolutely not, but it does help.”
