UK researchers used a cohort of 1,275,461 adults with and without diabetes, who were categorized into six different weight classes, and found a higher prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea among those with type 2 diabetes and obesity of any kind, compared with those of other weight classes. The findings in Diabetic Medicine also revealed that type 2 diabetes patients were at higher OSA risk if they were male, with overweight or obesity classes 1 to 3, and ages 35 to 54 and 55 to 74, compared with women, those of normal weight and those ages 18 to 34, respectively.
