I have sleep apnea and I use a CPAP. I have had it for a year and I still wake in the night in a panic because something is on my face! Really embarrassing.

Anyway, the CPAP does help. I have lost a lot of weight (50#) but that has not improved my sleep apnea or my hypertension. I guess each person if different. I may also need to lose a lot more, too, to night a difference since I am still in the obese category.

I think my husband has sleep apnea tho he hasn't been to the doctors. He'll snore and just stop and its complete silence and then snores/gasps for breath...

Once he dropped about 10 lbs, it has helped a lot. I don't think he did anything too hard in particular. He got regular sleep, drank lots of water and walked the dog daily for at least 15 minutes and did a lot of hand weights.

I don't personally have it, but i know people who do.
Do you have obstructive apnea or central apnea?
Have you tried a CPAP machine?
