Truth or Lie (Sleep Apnea)
The more people that take part in these polls then the more accurate they will be.

According to facts, most people who have sleep apnea have large necks. With many thousands of people now on the forum, I would like to know if this is fact or fiction. It will only take a moment to complete so please post your vote and a comment. Thanks

And this is precisely why the metric system never worked over here! Oh-jeez

As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.

I measured mine a month ago...so I know what mine is now...but pre-op to my weight loss surgery, mine measured a 16, which would have been large, now I am considered an extra small.

The average collar size for a man is around a 16 1/2 to 17 inches

There isnt one for women Too-funny Maybe they fib too much lol

Sleep apnea patients have a larger than average neck size. Looks like that could be a false fact?

RE: Truth or Lie (Sleep Apnea)
I had to take part in this poll.

Prior to my bariatric surgery which occurred 19 months ago today, my neck measurement was 18.25 inches.

My most recent set of measurements were taken last month. My neck measurement was 14.25 inches.
