With the overweight bearing so many medical problems or soon to be difficult health conditions and diseases, the media and medical professional associates weight problems closely with sleep apnea.
It is certainly a vicious cycle because people who don’t sleep normally have a tendency to gain weight. Now with the weight gain, sleep apnea is harder to fix.
Bottom line is that losing a bit weight by becoming more active, and eating right is good for the body and your overall health. (Adding on sleep apnea that can be cured by losing weight is not going to motive any one.) Do it for yourself because everyone deserves to live a normal life.
