(Va Beach, Va)
41 year old male.
I have sleep apnea, gout and psoriasis. The gout and psoriasis are usually in my right ankle and right big toe.
They are all related to being overweight. I've always had a challenge with my weight but in recent years my weight had ballooned to 270 pounds. Not bad if you're 6'5, but I'm 5'8".
It's a vicious cycle. Overweight = greater chance of sleep apnea, gout and psoriasis. Sleep apnea = a body in "crisis mode" which means holding onto every fat cell it can 'just in case'. Evolution is a bitch sometimes. Sleep apnea = tired, no desire to exercise = slow metabolism = fat = vicious cycle. Overweight = greater chance of gout and psoriasis. Life sucks at this point. Tired, grossly fat, a nasty skin rash and extremely painful right ankle from time to time = depression and life sucks.
I was treated for sleep apnea and now use a CPAP (Continous Positive Air Pressure) machine. Works great, but a CPAP treats the symptom not the dis-ease. I'm working out, losing weight and feeling much better. ACV wraps and ACV/honey/water are helping with the gout and psoriasis.
Goal is to maintain a healthy weight (about 180 pounds) and I'm well on my way.
