Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) is a disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of apnoea. This study evaluates the body composition in OSAS patients compared to normal weight, pre-obese and obese subjects. Body composition has been measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry in the whole body and in three different body regions. Abdominal region revealed no significant differences in fat mass percentage between patients and controls and no correlation between fat mass percentage… CONTINUE READING
