BACKGROUND Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with several conditions that could facilitate the onset of cardiovascular and metabolic dysfunctions. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy has been shown to improve cardiovascular morbidity and mortality related to OSA, but the mechanisms underlying this association are not fully understood. OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether sleep apnea contributes to insulin resistance and inflammatory marker… CONTINUE READING
