At Nairobi Bariatric Center, we often see a significant link between obesity and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Understanding and addressing this connection is key to improving overall health and well-being.
The Obesity-Sleep Apnea Connection:
Excessive weight, particularly around the neck, can affect breathing during sleep, leading to OSA. This condition not only disrupts sleep but also lowers oxygen levels in the body. With research showing that a majority of people with OSA are overweight or obese, it’s clear that tackling weight issues is important in managing sleep apnea.
The Cyclical Challenge:
OSA can make it hard to stay active due to sleepiness or fatigue, creating a vicious cycle where lack of exercise leads to even more weight gain, which in turn worsens sleep apnea. Additionally, poor sleep quality can increase appetite, again leading to more weight gain.
A Range of Weight Loss Solutions:
In Kenya, our center offers various weight loss procedures that can help treat and cure sleep apnea. These include non-surgical options like the gastric balloon and surgical choices such as bariatric surgery. These procedures have shown significant success in not only reducing weight but also improving sleep in general.
