[Best Syndication News] Bariatric weight loss surgery helped patients with sleep apnea lose the weight, but most still suffered from obstructive sleep apena (OSA) a year after undergoing the stomach reduction surgery. A study published in the August 15th issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine determined that how much a person was overweight before surgery was less of a factor as to the severity of the OSA before surgery. The more severe the OSA, the more likely the patient will continue to have OSA even after weight loss.

The studied encompassed 24 patients that were on average 47.9 years old and mostly (75 percent) were women that were obese and were going to have the bariatric surgery. The researchers studied the patients with an overnight polysomnography before the bariatric surgery and another time one year later after the procedure.

Sleep hyperhidrosis is the term given to the condition wherein you experience profuse sweating when you sleep at night. Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, usually happens during the day, when the body is all worked out from one's daily activities. However, sleep excess sweat is a rare instance wherein you sweat during the time that your body is practically at rest. People with sleep hyperhidrosis may not experience excessive sweating during the day. The same is true for people suffering from regular hyperhidrosis - they may not have problems at night as much as they do during their waking hours.

Sleep hyperhidrosis is as inconvenient as sweating during the day. Most people suffering from this condition tend to wake up in the middle of the night all soaked up with sweat. As such, they have no choice but to get up from bed and change into a different nightwear. It is not uncommon for people suffering from this condition to be insomniac or have problems staying asleep.

Monitor Blood Pressure

(Best Syndication News) Victorville CA – If you snore, pay special attention to this article. Spanish researchers say that blood pressure can be lowered by treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine while sleeping. Not everyone that snores will have OSA, however many will. Snoring is indication that there is some sort of obstruction.

The researchers evaluated 394 patients with high blood pressure and non-sleepy OSA—those with mild enough OSA that their daytime alertness was unaffected. On average, patients who used a CPAP machine while sleeping had an average 2mmHg drop in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure at the end of the year when compared to patients who did not use the CPAP machine.
