PURPOSE: Complex interrelationships between metabolic parameters and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) exist. OSA is often associated with obesity, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and dyslipidemia. Moderate or severe OSA is generally treated with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). In this study, we assessed several alternative metabolic parameters in patients with and without OSA, and the effects of CPAP therapy on these parameters.
