Diabetes [Caused by Sleep Apnea?]
RE: Diabetes [Caused by Sleep Apnea?]
From today's New York Times: 

Former linemen have big necks, and as they age their throat tissue becomes flabby, so their tongues can block their airways, said Anthony Scianni, a dentist who runs the Center for Dental Sleep Medicine, which works with former N.F.L. players.

The lack of oxygen, Scianni said, stimulates the body to produce more sugars, which can cause Type 2 diabetes and lead to overeating and other problems.

Not likely.

Fat people are more likely to develop sleep apnea.

Fat people are more likely to develop diabetes.

Fat people are more likely to be turned down for dates by hot, Sports Illustrated or Victoria's Secret models.

Maybe my diabetes and sleep apnea are due to my lack of dating hot models.
There.  I said it.
