Are there any threads that I may have missed in regards to dealing with sleep apnea and using blood type or genotype to deal with this issue as opposed to the conventional sleep study and the breathing masks?

Here is some of the material on the site related to sleep apnea:

I had a pretty bad case of it - had the sleep study, slept with a breathing mask for a few months, lost 35 pounds and the sleep apnea was gone! No more waking up gasping for breath or elevated blood pressure (waking at night gasping for breath and elevated blood pressure are pretty good signs of sleep apnea). I still have my mask in case I ever need it again, but it has been several months since I did. Actually, the mask helped to train me to breathe differently. I don't know about you, but when I was at my worst, being really tired made mine a LOT worse. The very time I needed rest more than ever, it was impossible because of the sleep apnea. Dr. D. mentions it in the Encyclopedia. This is not word for word: Avoid alcohol, tranquilizers, sleeping pills and antihistamines before retiring. Sleep prone or on your side. Raise the head of the bed.(I sleep on a wedge that I was already using for acid reflux. And he lists these protocols for each type: Pulmonary Support Protocol, Allergy Control Protocol, Sinus Health Protocol. Hope this helps. :)

Oh, and I don't snore according to everyone else - so if you don't, you can't necessarily depend on that to rule out sleep apnea.

I would quit breathing more times than ever. Do you have this problem?

One summer, maybe. I would wake up in a panic with blood shot eyes all the time. Then one time I dreamed that I was dieing because I couldn't breath or get up, and so I just accepted death because no matter how hard I tried I couldn't move at all. Then I woke up, shooting straight up, and totally scared out of my mind.

Often I don't breath as hard as I should. I think I am always healthier when my body starts to want to breath during physical activity or things that require blood flow... I have experienced so much of it not at all, even when running etc, and my skin goes a little toward the numb side.

It is more like I don't feel tired, but know my body is total exhausted but I never enter deep sleep. At best I wake up but don't have to pee. (I drink too much water because my system seems to be on a perma-flush all the time, or like it is super easy to get dehydrated and then the gushy sounds in my head get worse) I don't pee yellow though when I try to drink water all day, no matter how much carbs I eat. It doesn't seem diabetic, except that one summer when I would wake up in a panic and if I went pee it was really obvious my adrenals crashed during the middle of the night and blood sugar went up.

So yeah... mostly no deep sleep, and I don't feel tired, I just lay there are sorta fall asleep, but some sorta hormones that make it feel good and go into deep sleep are totally absent. I should feel tired if I worked on a hill shoveling, carrying 50lb wood stairs, 80lb concrete bags, etc, but I don't. It is defiantly a problem with me. Only when I was a kid did I feel tired and fall asleep consequently because of it (like watching TV, or just in bed like a normal person).
