Cat got your fat tongue?
Experts recently found a link between patients with a mild to severe obstructive sleep apnoea (which leads to snoring) along with a body mass index or BMI over 3o.
Interestingly enough, those who lost weight found that their sleeping improved by a third. But what does that have to do with your tongue?
Well, it can lose weight too.
According to MRI scans, a reduction in tongue fat volume was what made all the difference.
One of the researchers, Professor Richard Schwab, revealed to The Sun:
“Most experts have not typically focused on fat in the tongue. We now know it is a major factor.”
