Nasal congestion can lead to weight gain, Turkish newspaper Milliyet reports.
The media writes that nasal congestion does not allow a person to breathe fully, especially at night. A person suffering from this ailment does not sleep well, which is why he does not produce substances that regulate metabolism. The result is weight gain.
In addition, due to the fact that the nose does not breathe, a person usually sleeps with his mouth open, which leads to a decrease in the level of oxygen in the blood, and again slows down the process of burning fat in the body.
Moreover, such a person cannot completely relax at night and is always in a state of stress, which increases the production of the stress hormone cortisol, which also provokes the formation of fat in the body.
Thus, in order to normalize weight, you need to improve breathing and sleep.
As a rule, a curvature of the nasal septum, edema, or allergies leads to nasal congestion, the material says.
