Respiratory problems associated with obesity occur when added weight of the chest wall squeezes the lungs and causes restricted breathing.[stanfordhealthcare.org]

  • Morbid Obesity

    Adolescents who are obese have an increased risk of becoming obese adults. Taller children are more obese than shorter ones.[symptoma.com] Airway obstruction may be clinically obvious at the bedside, as patients with severe sleep apnoea may even ‘snore’ while awake, for example, when drawing breath while speaking[academic.oup.com] This includes hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes (too much sugar in the blood), heart disease, breathing problems or lung disease, sleep apnea (snoring), and arthritis[sages.org]

  • Asthma

    A wealth of epidemiologic literature has established that whereas asthma can lead to obesity, obesity is a risk factor for asthma, but mechanisms are unclear.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A meta-analysis by DiMatteo et al [ 50 ] revealed that patients with a chronic disease and depression were three times more likely to be noncompliant with medical treatment[doi.org] Depression is a risk factor for noncompliance with medical treatment: meta analysis of the effects of anxiety and depression on patient adherence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sleep Apnea

    Obesity is one of the major risk factors for the development of OSAS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] OSA causes or contributes to hypertension, arterial noncompliance, atherosclerosis, and glucose intolerance.[medscape.com] Our objective was to develop a simple clinical screening test for OSA in snoring patients.[doi.org]

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    The NLR ratio might be used as an inflammatory marker in obese OSAS subjects.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In noncompliant patients with extremely severe apnea, tracheostomy may be considered.[aafp.org] A progressive neuropathy of the soft palate and pharyngeal dilators may be associated with the progression of snoring to OSA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyperlipidemia

    Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) is a proven and effective procedure for the treatment of morbid obesity and its related co-morbid illnesses.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Overestimation of the actual ingested dosage may occur due to some degree of noncompliance.[journals.plos.org] Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Snoring may be a common night-time nuisance, but it can also signal a serious sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnoea.[healthhub.sg]

  • Hypoventilation

Effects of posture on respiratory mechanics in obesity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Previous history of venous thromboembolism, morbid obesity, male sex, hypertension, increasing age, and noncompliance with PAP treatment may further increase mortality risk[anesthesiology.pubs.asahq.org] SNORING Snoring is the sound of turbulence and soft tissue vibration in the back of the throat. The sound of snoring generally does not come from the nose.[americansleepassociation.org]

  • Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome

    Obesity hypoventilation syndrome is defined as the presence of obesity (BMI 30kg/m2) together with hypoventilation and daytime hypercapnia (PaCO2 45mmHg) in the absence of[symptoma.com] Previous history of venous thromboembolism, morbid obesity, male sex, hypertension, increasing age, and noncompliance with PAP treatment may further increase mortality risk[anesthesiology.pubs.asahq.org] Some of these symptoms include: Loud, chronic snoring Snoring with pauses. This is followed by choking or gasping.[lakelandhealth.org]

  • Essential Hypertension

    Abdominal obesity is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease worldwide, and it is becoming a dramatic issue for national health systems.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients who continue to be noncompliant will often return to the emergency room within weeks.[hyper.ahajournals.org] Snoring marked by frequent changes in loudness and frequency (as opposed to quiet and steady snoring) is highly suggestive of OSA.[aafp.org]

  • Otitis Media
