Sleep Apnea vs TRT - News
I am 39 years old and since the age of 15 I have chronic insomnia and at 28 I discovered that I had severe sleep apnea. As more than 70% of the patients also did not adapt to the cpap.
Then around 30, I started to have chronic fatigue and started having great difficulties to gain muscle mass and to lose weight.
At 35 I looked for an endocrinologist for TRT. I stopped at 6 months because my symptoms got worse, and as I read several articles saying that TRT worsened sleep apnea, I decided that Testosterone was not for me.
In the beginning of 2020, I read some intriguing articles, which showed that after 18 weeks of TRT, the symptoms of sleep apnea started to improve. That is the reason for sharing this data with you.
In the last 10 years I have read more than 20,000 articles in the pubmed about sleep apnea, looking for some news that could alleviate my condition. Incredibly almost 100% of the studies on TRT x Sleep Apnea, are at most 18 weeks. Quite suspicious isn’t it?
I resumed my TRT in 2020 and I am in week 16. So soon I will be able to tell you if I got consistent improvements or not.
Follow links on TRT after 18 weeks in sleep apnea patients.
I will create this new topic to discuss what I have learned about sleep apnea in the past 10 years. Including demonstrating which are the markers that tend to be altered in patients with apnea and links with possible new causes other than just weight gain.
