CPAP benefits: The immediate benefits of proper CPAP use include more restful sleep, better focus and attention and no morning headache if you tend to get that. Confirm any issues you are having with your CPAP device with your sleep specialist.

One benefit: Can improve diabetes. Using CPAP to treat your sleep apnea can improve insulin sensitivity. Sleep apnea is related to glucose intolerance and insulin resistance, both factors in type 2 diabetes. Untreated sleep apnea increases your risk of getting type 2 diabetes.
