Optimize your sleep by using different Bilevel or BiPAP pressure settings. I use in three different situations so as to wake up refreshed and energized each day. On this Blog Post, is an Example of the results using my actual sleep data and SleepyHead reports when using the Bilevel auto adjusting pressure machine. You may have other circumstances which another situation may arise. The three different situations that I use are as follows:
On the blog post Change or Reset your Circadian Rhythm, when I use a Bilevel auto adjusting machine with different settings, I have a different circadian rhythm or sleep cycle for each different setting. By using the Bilevel machine I have optimized my sleep every day.
Circadian rhythms are your body's internal clock or sleep/wake cycle which repeats roughly every 24 hours. Ideally, wake up at the end of a sleep cycle not in the middle of one otherwise you may feel tired and sleepy all day.
In addition to sleep apnea, I also have a genetic disorder, Hemochromatosis. This disorder is characterized by having too much iron absorption from the foods that you eat. Where your iron levels are too high, you may feel incredibly tired and lethargic and may lead to health issues such as cirrhosis of the liver, heart disease and diabetes.
Body iron level helps regulate
our circadian rhythms and their link to metabolism. You can

Importantly, Research is supporting that a brain's ability to clear a protein closely linked to Alzheimer's disease is tied to our circadian cycle.

On the blog page Guide to Success using CPAP and Bilevel, I list the 4 steps that I believe are the The Secrets to Success.
You have only one opportunity at life. Make the most of each and every day, free from pain and suffering.
Should you be having side effects and issues with your sleep apnea therapy; CHANGE what you are doing so that you can wake up feeling refreshed and energized each day.
