Are you saying that THRT basically cures your sleep (apnea) problems, or are you also on CPAP?
Do you believe apnea was reduced due to weight loss and/or other benefits as a result of the T replacement?
One of the symptoms of low T is poor sleep, so presumably, getting proper amount of T would help alleviate that symptom by itself. Further help of obstructive apnea woild be relieved with weight loss which is also helped with having lroper T levels.
Asking for two reasons. First my wife has sleep problems and low T (NOT apnea). Also a male co-worker has problems with obstructive apnea and difficulties with using CPAP.
TRT helped me sleep better but really did nothing to help with the apnea, what also helped for sleep was taking Magnesium, and Vit D3.
My apnea doesnt seem to be related much to weight as I have always had it, a genetic thing really with a slightly smaller jaw.
Yes am on CPAP and use it 8 to 9 hours every night, the alternative is to ghastly to think about, I doubt I would have lived another 5 years with out it as the long term affects of life long Apnea would kick in ie Cardio vascular which has prematurely killed off all the previous generation of males in the family prior to age 60.
My advice regards CPAP, BIPAP VPAP or APAP is to persist and work on it until a viable protocol gets in place, explore all options, it does work but sometimes its a long road for some. I have found this site a fantastic resource http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Forum-Main-Apnea-Board-Forum
and far better than any medical doctor advice I have recieved.
