I was on CPAP for about 3 years and decided to give serious weight loss a chance. I have lost over 50 pounds (255 to 200) and no longer suffer from OSA. Thinking back, my sleep apnea began after a big weight gain. Perhaps sleep apnea caused by weight gain can be cured with weight loss. It worked for me.
