Your daytime sleepiness may be due to sleep apnea that you may not be aware of. It is good that you are losing weight. Once you reach a BMI of less than 25, you should see improvement. If after reaching a healthy weight, you still have an issue, you may need a sleep study to rule out central apnea. Wish you good health!
