Who knew that diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) could be related? People who have both do, and are probably the most compliant with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy because they know its benefit to both conditions.
Consider this: Diabetes is a worldwide epidemic. Meanwhile, sleep-disordered breathing often remains undiagnosed and, therefore, untreated. A correlation between both conditions is not surprising, as today's research confirms.
