CPAP Can Improve HDL Cholesterol Levels

With all the talk about sleep apnea and its’ association with high blood pressure and diabetes, little has been mentioned about how obstructive sleep apnea can affect your cholesterol and other lipid levels. We already know that OSA is linked with fatty liver syndrome. It’s not surprising that treating obstructive sleep apnea with CPAP has been shown to raise your HDL levels (the good kind of cholesterol). 

Have your cholesterol or other lipid levels changed after using CPAP?
