Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome – Mayo Clinic

The CDC statistics are alarming. More than one-third of adults in the U.S. are obese. You likely know that obesity can increase your risk of diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and heart attack. But you might not know that it also increases your risk of a condition called obesity hypoventilation syndrome, or OHS. And doctors at Mayo Clinic say, if left untreated, OHS can destroy quality of life and cause heart failure.
