    This study found that those with low vitamin D were 45% more likely to have Sleep Apnea. But when the study “adjusted” the data for high BMI, the increased risk went away. It has been shown many times that those with high BMI have low vitamin D – since vitamin D is stored in fat, and not available elsewhere in the body. BMI and Vitamin D ARE NOT independent variables.
