  1. Sorry, but we’re not transcribing our podcasts at this time. It’s something were thinking about starting sometime in the near future.

  2. Dear Dr. Park,
    I (thin, 65 year-old-female) have had years of sleep breathing issues. Four years ago I had a sleep study with AHI of 1.0, but confirmation that I wake up during REM. I think I might have UARS. (I have a history of a lot of respiratory issues — sinus surgery and nasal polyp removal which cured my profound sinusitis and frequent bronchitis, but now I’m left with chronic instead of periodic asthma.) I’ve been told recently that I have non-allergic (vasomotor) rhinitis. I plan to use a HEPA filter in the bedroom. (I practice all the sleep hygiene recommendations.) If no luck, I’m considering another sleep study. My question: Would a dental appliance work for me if I still don’t show OSA? Many thanks for your very informative articles and podcasts! Sincerely, Arna Rubman, Columbia MD (DC/Baltimore area).

  3. Ms. Rubman,

    A mandibular advancement device is a good option for anyone with UARS. It doesn’t work for everyone but it’s worth trying. Good luck.

  4. Thank you, Dr. Park, for your reply!

    I have an excellent dentist and very good (so far) supplemental dental insurance (GEHA). I suspect my challenge will be getting this device covered if my AHI is again shown to be normal. In any event, you give me hope!

  5. I also encounter one of these problems, I believe this is also a problem that many people encounter. Here are a few suggestions from my personal point of view. To limit urinating, divide your drinking water several times, each time you drink a little, you will not feel thirsty and you will less urinate.
