Men with severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) had a significantly lower bone mineral density than participants without OSA, according to a Japanese study published in the January issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine. OSA and bone mineral density had no association in females. According to the authors, CT imaging may be useful to measure bone mineral density as a marker of osteoporosis in OSA patients.
