How Many Of You With celiac disease Have Sleep Apena?
0

34 posts in this topic

Someone mentioned cost of the test and machine. My insurance didn't cover anything for me, and actually it has been good insurance otherwise.

They had a sleep study program here that I could have paid for, but it was more expensive then going to the philippines for the study. I am working on an island in the pacific. I stretched the trip out and made it a vacation so I could see the rice terraces too.

When I returned, I had to pay for the machine totally out of pocket. It wasn't cheap for any of it, but worth every penney in the long run.

I think it is awful that we have citizens that can't get proper medical care. Proper sleep affects everything.

I think when one reaches 62, can get help from Medicare on all of this. I hope that isn't too long for some to wait for help.

I am pre-diagnosis (negative biopsy in the past), but I have a sister with celiac and another with gluten-sensitivity (negative biopsy - Enterolabs results point to gluten sensitivity), I've had baaaadddd belly probs since I was a little girl. I'm 51 and have severe osteoporosis - so bad that in the last two years, I've lost 3/4 of an inch in height. That said, I have bad sinus problems and I "forget to breathe."

I also have moderate sleep apnea, but I refuse to do CPAP. Claustrophobic...23yo son also has mild sleep apnea, and considering how my ex snored like a freight train, I wouldn't be shocked if he had it too.

Recent immunological tests show I have an IgG2 (subclass 2) deficiency and Hashimoto's thyroiditis (the beginning stages) - both parents and three of four sisters have it. IgG2 deficiency can result in a predisposition to upper and lower respiratory infections. That could possibly be contributing to breathing issues while you're sleeping, too. Might be worth checking out.

Hi, I am new to this forum not sure where to begin. I too have sleep Apena but do not use a mask because I had the surgery. I think it did work a little. Before, the surgery I was waking up 36 times an hour. I would not recommend the surgery because, it was the most painful thing I have ever had done. Some doctors won't even do it anymore.

I have just recently been told I have celiac's disease not sure if the to have anything to do with each other but it sure seems a lot of people have sleeping problems have celiac's disease or a gluten intolerance. I have been gluten free since jan 4th and already feel a great deal better. I have drive again something I haven't had in almost 18 years. The depression has gone and I am losing weight down 8 pounds in just 11 days. I hope to lose 72 more pounds.

I don't know where the poll part is but... I was very recently diagnosed with sleep apnea. Whether directly caused by celiacs or because I am overweight so indirect cause I'm not sure... but I do have the other neuralogical probls a lot of celiacs have like mind fog, memory loss etc.

HI all,

I just joined this group this morning,and the first topic that I read was this one. I hope I'm not too late to discuss this.

I also have celiac, and sleep apnea, and I never knew that there is a possibility that they are "linked," other than by the fact that I gained lots of weight over the last 15 years--while I was being diagnosed with everything else under the sun--such as fibro, chronic fatigue, IBS, Epstein Barr, lactose intolerance, etc. etc. I did find out that I have Hashimoto's (that one was true).

I use a CPAP every night, and I'm totally gluten free (except for accidents), but I'm not losing any weight.

I'd welcome any discussion or tips.

For those suffering from sleep apnea, there is hope. I know the CPAP machine..well, sucks. But there is a special pillow designed to fit the mask or nasal pilows and help wild sleepers keep the cord in place so it doesn't get tangled.

try (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) sleep apnea pillow by CPAP

Thanks so the note...No time now to really write a long note but here are the main points-- and let's keep in touch ok.

can us the PM also or my email which i think is posted

Been gluten-free for 6 months and fibro is almost gone ---was TOTALLY Glutened by dairy from my gluten-free lasganna I made the other nite. In the am couldn't go down the stairs for 1 hr. pain in every single joint, muscle, and man was I fibro fogged..and had a board meeting

gluten-free diet and proper mask is the answer for me...keep up the gluten-free diet and think it will work for you. I've been fighting my weight for years and this 35 # weight loss has been so easy when gluten-free.

let's keep in touch..

HI

I'm really having a problem with my nasel pillow mask. I put a post on earlier and didn't get many responces so thought i'd try this poll option. I've never done a poll before but here goes...

I'm sure since so many people are having sleep issues ( did a search and found so many posts on this)

I know i can call the company but wanted to hear from the 'real experts' as you are the users and thought so many might have some ideas.

One nite i woke up and the hose was wrapped around my neck. Found if i put a pillow under my knees it keeps me from moving around so much.

Last nite I was sent to the guest room again....UCK! Hate to keep my dh awake and he's been so supportive of the noise etc but this has been a problem for the past week.

Lost 35 #'s but thought that the pressure was only a problem if you gained weight.

I hope i hear from some of you out there with this issue of sleep apena?

I know with so many people on this board there must be alot of us out there with sleep apena

I am curious if Sleep Apnea is related to Celiac. I was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea 5 years ago and went through several masks and was never really happy with the results. I think partly because I am a women and my hair would make the masks slip off. Anyway 2 years ago my sleep doctor said I may do well with a mouth piece to wear at night. It brings your lower jaw forward. At that time my insurance would not pay for it but now it does. A dentist does all the work and it did cost me 300 dollars but it is wonderful. It is so much better than the C-Pap. I would recommend it to anyone who has Sleep Apnea and confirm that you may do well with just wearing something that pulls the jaw forward.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
