Sleep & Heart Failure
A Case of Sleep Apnea and Weight Loss
For nearly 20 years, Sarah suffered from constant fatigue. She was so tired that she couldn't even manage a daily walking routine. She felt like she was "living in a fuzz all day long," so she began to eat to "wake up." The more tired she was the more she ate, thinking it would provide her energy. Sarah went from a size 10 to a size 23. The weight gain caused her to become depressed. She was ready to go back to bed 10 minutes after waking up. Her lack of energy was spiraling her life out of control.
