Changes in energy metabolism after continuous positive airway pressure for obstructive sleep apnea

Tachikawa R et al.
Used Parameters : FFM, SMM, BFM

Publication Year : 2016

Country : Japan

Journal : American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine

Rationale: Disrupted energy homeostasis in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may lead to weight gain. Paradoxically, treating OSA with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) may also promote weight gain, although the underlying mechanism remains unclear. Objectives: To explore the underlying mechanism by which patients with OSA gain weight after CPAP. Methods: A comprehensive assessment of energy metabolism was performed in 63 newly diagnosed OSA study participants (51 men; 60.8±10.1 yr; apnea–hypopnea …
