Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) such as snoring or obstructive sleep apnea and metabolic syndrome are both related to cardiovascular diseases. Being a surrogate marker of high risk for cardiovascular disorder, the high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) level is thought to be elevated in patients with both SDB and metabolic syndrome. To understand better the development of cardiovascular disease in patients with SDB, we examined the association of metabolic variables with hs-CRP levels in… CONTINUE READING
