Relief for sleepless nights
« on: January 12, 2020, 12:25:14 am »
If the forums ever get reorganized, there should be one for health, & it would fit it into this category if it were renamed the 5H Club, for Head, Heart, Hands, Health, & Home. Just a thought. :)

Anyway, here is the latest in health news. If you have sleep apnea, it might be time for a diet - but how do you slim down part of your body that can fit in the palm of your hand?

Curelom, please put your suggestions for reorganization up in the thread about possible reorganization.

As to particular weight loss for apnea--I know there are surgeries to remove extra...'flesh' that can contribute to apnea and snoring. Often losing weight (especially as we get older) doesn't help much because the skin/tissue is stretched out and won't just bounce back (sometimes EVER).

Plus there's a common misunderstanding that only fat people get obstructive sleep apnea. Nope. Skinny people get it, too.

AND some people lose weight and discover apnea will tether them to a CPAP til death do us part because the soft tissue collapses, nothing to do with weight. 

I wish I knew a physiology research person because I wonder if going from singing all the time to singing 3 songs on a Sunday caused muscle flab in the vocal area and thats what caused the apnea along with menopausal weight.

I will never know but I sure hate lugging that machine around the world.

My father was one very skinny man. He snored so loud that us kids thought the cracks in the ceilings & exterior walls was because of his snoring. He also stopped breathing. Mom could not sleep with him because of that - she would shake him awake and then neither of them could get back to sleep.

He was never diagnosed with sleep apnea - methinks that was before it was commonly known & treatable. He died at age 60 from his one and only heart attack. ALL of us kids believe he suffered from sleep apnea.

ALL of his children have sleep apnea. His baby boy was the first to be diagnosed and is still on BPap. The rest of us are users of CPaps. Half of us are overweight. All of us are Type II Diabetics. Dad was never diabetic.

That article, in my opinion, is a lot of hooey. Losing weight is NOT going to cure you of sleep apnea.

The story is NOT about weight loss to cure sleep apnea.

It is about slimming one's tongue as a possible remedy.
