RATIONALE Although obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with impaired glucose tolerance and diabetes, it remains unclear whether OSA treatment with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) has metabolic benefits. OBJECTIVES To determine the effect of 8-hour nightly CPAP treatment on glucose metabolism in individuals with prediabetes and OSA. METHODS In a randomized controlled parallel group study, 39 participants were randomly assigned to receive either 8-hour nightly CPAP (n = 26… CONTINUE READING
