heart diseas / sleep apnea
I am a 42 year old male who was just diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea with snoring but is intolerant of the CPAP.  I am currently using an oral devise which forces my forward.  I would like to to know if sleep apnea directly related to heart disease can it be reversed with the start of a CPAP or an oral devise?

Sleep apnea, appropriately treated using any modality, can normalize your heart risk factors. This is why it's important to undergo a sleep test with your device in place to make sure that your numbers are within normal limits.
