Does fatty food in the evening have an impact on breathing pauses?

Nutrition plays an important role in restful sleep. What to do and what not to do in the evening.

Everyone likes to eat a pizza in the evening. But be careful with fatty and rich food, especially in the evening, because it affects sleep.

Short and sweet:

  • Late meals in particular worsen the quality of sleep and lead to increased breathing interruptions in patients with sleep apnea. 
  • In general, an unhealthy diet can lead to obesity, which in turn is a risk factor for sleep apnea.
  • A healthy lifestyle with few carbohydrates or a Mediterranean diet has a positive influence on the risk factor weight.
  • Weight reduction, in turn, significantly improves the symptoms of sleep apnea in most patients.
