    Sleep apnea may increase the risk of diabetes 2-fold according to a new study from Sweden. Severely obese subjects who lost weight, but continued to have sleep apnea were twice as likely to develop diabetes, and 1.9 times as likely to develop elevated triglycerides than those who got rid of their sleep apnea.

    Those who did not get rid of their sleep apnea were not more likely to develop elevated blood pressure or elevated cholesterol levels.
