Sleep Apnoea May Raise Osteoporosis Risk

pelvicObstructive sleep apnoea is associated with disrupted sleep and daytime fatigue. Sleep apnoea impacts various organs including the skeletal system. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism has indicated that people who are diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnoea are at high risk of developing osteoporosis. Women and the older adults were at a higher risk.

The study carried out by researchers in Taiwan recruited 1,377 people diagnosed with OSA and 20,655 without OSA who were followed up six years later. They found that the incidence of osteoporosis among OSA patients was 2.7 times higher when compared to people without OSA.
