THAT is the right reason to loose weight.
But will it help you reduce your CPAP pressure setting. Maybe. I know we've actually had some people who saw an INCREASE in pressure needs. So, don't bet on it. It might decrease some. It might not. And in fairly rare instances, your pressure might need to be increased.
So, loose weight for your overall health. That's the right reason to loose it.
