Good advice and I am, of course, doing just that. The real
challenge is to not “FIND” the weight once again. However,
I come to really enjoy low cal. foods; maybe I can maintain
It’s no wonder I’m feeling better !! Out of curiosity, I weighed a
large 12 volt automobile battery this morning. It weighed 40 lbs.
I was carting around the equivalent of that large battery 24 hrs.
of every day !! That makes me feel better and bolsters my will
power just thinking about it !!

No! night sweats and night time peeing are a result of OSA.

Hhhmmm. Haven’t heard that before. At my age I expect
“nightime peeing” as a result of enlarged prostate……
Been up at least once a night for years…
But have not noticed nightime sweats.

This has been discussed here frequently. Check the archives for
a couple references/links to two medical theories as to why OSA
can result in the (apparent) need to urinate during the middle of
My internist diagnosed me with an enlarged prostate, without any
kind of diagnostic test, not even the finger test, just based on
my telling him of multiple awakenings, long before I even had an
OSA symptom. IMHO, this results from OSA ignorance.
Very shortly after starting cpap, the symptoms improved.
I actually went to a urologist to get an ultrasound of my
prostate to determine if it was enlarged. The ultrasound
equipment has the outline of a ‘normal’ prostate. The doctor
noted that I had the prostate of a 20 year old (at 68) and that
it was smaller than normal.
Pretty persuasive for me.

I’m 33 and was having to get up 3 or 4 times a night to urinate.
Copiously On CPAP I sleep all night long. As I age I won’t be
surprised to ahve to start gettign up again one time a night, but man 3
or 4 was a drag.

rather than playing with fire, why don’t you just determine for sure you
don’t have a problem before you stop using the CPAP….. at the least –
follow Norm’s advice and use a pulse ox meter for a couple of nights

I do appreciate your concern. And, I may do just that. My apnea
was never of a “severe” nature (about 18 “episodes” per hour).
The diagnosis was “mild” apnea.
But, I’ve always listened to my body and trust my own opinions as much
as anyone’s. I don’t want to make this apnea business any more
serious than absolutely necessary……..
Besides, “playing with fire” at my age might be just another
interesting experience !!
Thanks, again, dear…
