The study was aimed, therefore, at evaluating the nutritional knowledge and selected elements of lifestyle of obese patients with diagnosed obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), treated at the Lower Silesia Center of Pulmonary Diseases in Wroclaw. Assessment of nutritional knowledge was conducted among 49 patients including 12 women and 37 men with diagnosed obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), treated at the Lower Silesia Center of Pulmonary Diseases in Wroclaw.

It included questions from different fields referring to, among others: knowledge on rational nutrition, type of physical activity, frequency of cigarette smoking, etc. Despite the demonstrated some knowledge of good nutrition, its use by patients with OSA in everyday life raises many objections.
