Recognising obstructive sleep apnoea as a sign of developing diabetes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The number of people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) is increasing rapidly worldwide and it is known that this is a consequence of the rising prevalence of obesity, driven by unhealthy diet and reduced physical activity. Diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is often missed and yet it is increasingly recognised as an independent risk factor for the development of T2D. Since both OSA and T2D share common increased susceptibility to oxidative stress, the coexistence of OSA and T2D potentially places individuals at an increased morbidity and mortality risk. This article aims to increase clinical awareness of and draw therapeutic attention to OSA as a potential sign of developing T2D in high-risk individuals.
