Thanks a lot for the heads-up in the presentation Ajin. I better start doing some serious cardio exercises regularly. Though I believe I'm more or less following a heart friendly dietary habits for sometime now...

The presentation is really informative. Thanks  a lot.

Inorder to download the presentation attached on Ajin's post right click it and choose 'Save Link As' option.

For users who doesn't have a compatible version of MS Powerpoint (It needs MS Powerpoint 2007) I have converted it to older version compatible format as well. Please find it at the end of this post.

CPAP helps in Metabolic syndrome according to a new study. Short description from the study is qouted below:
Three months of treatment with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) was associated with improvements in many different components of the metabolic syndrome in a new study in patients with both metabolic syndrome and obstructive sleep apnea. Lead investigator, Dr Surendra Sharma (All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi) said: "Currently, we use medicines for the treatment of metabolic syndrome. The message of this study is that, if metabolic syndrome is associated with obstructive sleep apnea, then CPAP should be the first-line of treatment." He added: "Ours is the first evidence-based study with positive results and gives a ray of hope for patients that have obstructive sleep apnea with metabolic syndrome."
CPAP Therapy and Changes in End Points
Variable Difference with CPAP
Abdominal circumference, cm –0.73
Systolic blood pressure, mmHg –3.86
Diastolic blood pressure, mmHg –2.49
Glycated hemoglobin, % –0.21
Triglycerides, mg/dL –18.65
Total cholesterol, mg/dL –13.26
LDL cholesterol, mg/dL –9.55
Following CPAP therapy, 14 patients (20%) no longer met the criteria for metabolic syndrome, with the specific criterion resolved being blood pressure (five patients), fasting blood glucose (two patients), triglycerides (two patients), HDL cholesterol (three patients), triglycerides and HDL cholesterol (one patient), and triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, and fasting blood glucose (one patient).
Sharma added that the cessation of airflow in obstructive sleep apnea leads to nocturnal oxygen desaturation, release of sympathetic hormones, and endothelial dysfunction, all of which result in metabolic abnormalities. "These can be prevented by CPAP," he added.
