Obesity is often associated with a condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea, which causes severe excessive daytime sleepiness, and can have serious medical consequences. She needs to be seen by a sleep doctor, who will probably want to do tests to get to the bottom of the problem. She will then need the appropriate treatment. Quite often, after being treated, it becomes much easier to lose weight.
