Sleep Apnea Treatment: Diet
Sleep Apnea has been called a lifestyle disease, meaning that it results from lifestyle choices. Diet is often a major contributor to a sleep apnea diagnosis. Obesity is the biggest risk factor in developing sleep apnea.
As little as a 10% weight loss can greatly reduce the number of sleep apnea episodes that occur each night, so consider losing weight or maintaining healthy weight to help with your sleep apnea.

Alcohol acts as a nervous system depressant which means it affects the brain, causing it to function more slowly and less effectively. Using alcohol will increase the frequency of sleep apnea episodes.
