Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is closely associated (comorbid) with a number of diseases, particularly obesity, diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.

Patients with these diseases are far more likely to have OSA. Treating it is proven to have a significant positive effect on primary diagnosis outcome; and treating OSA as the primary diagnosis can mitigate the likelihood of developing the comorbid diseases.

This document is intended to summarize just a few of the many clinical reports documenting the extent of the comorbidities and the impact of treatment.
