WEIGHT LOSS

Untreated Sleep Apnea can cause changes to your metabolism that makes losing weight more difficult. If you use your CPAP device regularly, these changes can be reversed over time and you may find you have more success with the weight loss methods you are trying.

Having more energy and being less tired as a result of CPAP treatment will make it much easier to eat well and exercise more.

LIFESTYLE BENEFITS

Sleep Apnea therapy may result in improvements in the following conditions:

  • No more snoring
  • Waking up feeling more refreshed
  • Reduction in daytime tiredness and fatigue
  • Improved concentration and memory
  • Reduction of morning headaches

Your bed partner will also benefit with a better night’s sleep, as not only will the snoring have stopped but he or she will have peace of mind in knowing that their loved one is not stopping breathing during the night.
