ABSTRACT

Up to recently the respiratory disturbances were considered a risk factor for hypertension, but there was no trace of a role in metabolic disorders. Only recently the existence of a connection among the respiratory disturbance caused by the obstruction of the upper airways and a wide array of metabolic disturbances has been demonstrated. The respective roles of anoxia/ hypoxia and the attendant disturbed sleep remain, however, to be clarified.
