Just ANOTHER reason to treat your sleep apnea (IGF1)

The effect of CPAP therapy on insulin-like growth factor and cognitive functions in obstructive sleep apnea patients - Kanbay - 2015 - The Clinical Respiratory Journal - Wiley Online Library

Pertinent info (OSAS = obstructive sleep apnea syndrome):

In the OSAS group, the baseline MMSE score was 23.5 ± 3.6, and serum IGF-1 level was 79.1 ± 36.1 ng/mL. Both values were significantly lower compared with the control group (mean MMSE score = 28.1 ± 1.4, P = 0.0001; mean serum IGF-1 level = 147.1 ± 49.1 ng/mL, P < 0.0001). Three months after CPAP treatment, OSAS patients showed a significant improvement in MMSE scores (26.5 ± 2.8, P = 0.0001) and serum IGF-1 level (129.1 ± 58.2, P = 0.0001).

Granted it's one study...but I know some out there wouldn't consider doing anything unless it will potentially lead to gains, so there you are!

Other reasons:

Prevent cardiac remodeling and arrhythmia
Prevent atrial fibrillation
Lower fasted and postprandial (after a meal) glucose
Improve memory and cognition
Possibly decrease cancer risk

Most bodybuilders probably have some degree of sleep apnea--I sure did. Most of us try and optimize our health through all sorts of supplements--but MANY seem in denial about apnea and have an unwillingness to seek treatment. Hopefully that changes.

There really is no up side to the cells of your brain and body getting less oxygen then they need. It has to impact most everything.

That's interesting. I wonder how much natural IGF-1 levels is an indicator of sleep apnea

Not sure...what really struck me is the mean age of the participants was ~47 having that high of IGF1 levels. Granted it means potentially less translation to differences in IGF1 of most of the users of this forum...but still. Wish I had pre-apnea bloodwork done to see the changes in myself, but I'm not going through putting myself in a state of living hell again just for the sake of science (at this point in my life I can't afford to).
