Could fruit baskets help sleep apnoea sufferers?
Published on 08/11/2011

Buying fruit baskets for a friend or family member could help them if they suffer from sleep apnoea.

Marianne J Davey, director of the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association, stated that body weight and diet play a major role in how severe a person's symptoms are.

She made the claim after a study published in the European Respiratory Journal examined the impact a Mediterranean diet can have on obese people with sleep apnoea.

The research showed that consuming healthy foods and engaging in regular exercise can help alleviate the symptoms associated with the condition.

Ms Davey said the results from the study are encouraging.

"The Mediterranean diet clearly shows that they eat far less red meat and refined cereals - which are high in fat content - but eat more in the way of fresh fruit and vegetables," she added.

Combining this with exercise is an effective way to lose weight and reduce the symptoms of sleep apnoea, the expert concluded.
