Hi, I just wanted to say hello. I have been using my CPAP since I got it in March 2014 and feel much less tired during the day. People have said that it is easier to lose weight once one is getting sufficient sleep, but I have not yet found that to be the case. What is the scoop with that?!

Sorry no one has posted earlier. This is a new forum.

In general lots of people who start treatment of sleep apnea are able to loose weight more easily. When I first got a cpap I did.

The reasons are you are getting better blood oxygen levels while sleeping. That helps you metabolise or burn calories better while you sleep.

The problem is most folks are able to loose weight more easily. ..there is no guarantee.

I think you are one of the unlucky ones the fickle finger of fste picked. ...

sorry
