This month, New York Cardiovascular Associates is promoting awareness of weight loss as a natural means of treating sleep apnea. The New York based sleep clinic hopes to educate the public on the connection between obstructive sleep apnea and obesity.
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when normal breathing is obstructed. “Being overweight or obese can lead to excess fat around the neck,” says a center representative. “This fat can block the upper airway, making breathing difficult.” Improved breathing can be achieved when this obstruction is removed through weight loss.
New York Cardiovascular Associates hopes to encourage weight loss as a natural way to relieve sleep apnea symptoms. They will be providing information on weight loss and its relation to sleep apnea through Twitter, Facebook, and an informative video.
Weight loss can help relieve sleep apnea and is associated with a number of other health benefits. The center recommends working with a doctor to develop a targeted weight-loss plan to anyone hoping to pursue this manner of treatment.
