Obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome (OSAS) is a relatively new disease which is proven to be a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and a huge problem for public health. Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is another disease which is worldwide seen as an epidemic. The link between these two conditions makes it more important to provide a proper treatment option for such patients in order to prevent life threatening complications. This article is an up-to-date review of the relationship between OSAS and T2DM, diagnostic procedures and treatment options for patients who have both of the diseases since every particular case may be adjusted differently and may benefit from a multiple line treatment.
