Losing Weight Can Cure Obstructive Sleep Apnoea in Overweight Patients

    NEW YORK -- February 6, 2009 -- Losing weight is perhaps the single most effective way to reduce symptoms of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), according to a study published in the January issue of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.

    "Very low calorie diet (VLCD) combined with active lifestyle counselling resulting in marked weight reduction is a feasible and effective treatment for the majority of patients with mild OSA, and the achieved beneficial outcomes are maintained at 1-year follow-up," said lead author Henri P.I. Tuomilehto, MD, Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Kuopio University Hospital, Kuopio, Finland.

    The prospective, randomised trial included 81 patients with mild OSA. Patients were randomised to either a very low calorie diet combined with lifestyle counselling (n=40) or to lifestyle counselling alone (n=41).

    Patients in the intervention arm who underwent a strict diet lost more than 10 kg (20 lbs) on average in 1 year and were able to keep the weight off resulting in markedly lower symptoms of OSA. The patients in the control arm lost on average less than 3 kg (6 lbs) and were much less likely to see improvements in their OSA.

    "The greater the change in body weight or waist circumference, the greater was the improvement in OSA," said Dr. Tuomilehto.

    Mild OSA was objectively cured in 88% of the patients who lost more than 16.5 kg (33 lbs) -- a statistic that declined with the amount of weight lost. Only in 62% of those who lost between 5.5 kg and 16.5 kg (11-33 lbs) were objectively cured of their OSA, as were 38% of those who lost between zero and 5.5 kg (0-11 lbs), and only 11% of those who had not lost weight or who had gained weight.

    "…while we would not necessarily recommend the severe caloric restriction used in our study to every patient, one of the first treatment for OSA that should be considered in the overweight patient is clearly weight loss," said Dr. Tuemilehto.  Soirce: American Thoratic Society
