Of interest for Eric
Hi, just wondering what you thought about something (I was reminded of it when reading about the other poster's wife with celiac disease). A lot of people these days are being dx'd with sleep apnea (and put on Cpap for treatment). What's interesting is that there seems to be a whole syndrome, and while not everyone falls into all categories (that affect the patients), some of them include GERD (esophageal reflux), which also seems to be greatly helped by just raising the head of the bed x 6+" at night. Another common symptom is weight gain that's difficult to turn around, but it's been hard to discover whether it's a product of OSA (Obstructive SA) or an accompaniment). Many people are misdiagnosed prior to getting a sleep study, and so many of them are told they're just depressed (no sleep will do that to you!), hypothyroid, negligent about dieting, have underlying celiac disease (again, which came first, the CD or OSA?), along with a slew of other things. Have you looked into this at all, and what do you think of it in general? PS the best and by far most informative site would be Cpap.com/forum, but I'm not pushing anything here, just offering info.
