    RE: Sleep Apnea

    I have a mild-severe case of sleep apnea diagnosed in 2009. I've been successfully using a bipap since for the apnea. I've also smoked M for many years. What is it that you mean to "beat" sleep apnea? I've learned a ton about sleep apneas since being diagnosed. Perhaps I can help?...

    RE: Sleep Apnea

    Yes, many people who are over 50, or overweight have apnea. About 11 years ago, I was tested at a medical Sleep Center (expensive if your insurance does not cover it.) I had a light case of Apnea, but requested what they call a CPAP machine. From a friend who uses one now, I hear they are much more conformable to wear. Online Mayo Clinic talks about them at this link: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/sleep-apnea/in-depth/cpap/art-20044164
    I could not tolerate using the machine, so my dentist recommended an inexpensive device called a TSD (Tongue Stabilizing Device) which keeps you able to breath while asleep. You insert your tongue and the outer air pressure keeps it tightly on. It makes you look as if you are sticking out your tongue at your sleep, but It works for me. Check with your dentist.
