1. I am still getting some air swallowing so maybe a lower EPAP max would help but I will wait a few nights.
A moderate amount of air swallowing is normal with ASV therapy.
I suggest taking daily or twice daily a "probiotic" such as Garden of Life brand "Primal Defense Ultra" so that the air which is swallowed and passes through the system will not get smelly. Also, probiotics are a great boost to our immune system and general good health.
With the probiotic, I also take a time release Magnesium pill (Jig Saw brand sustained release Magnesium) to avoid constipation which sometimes happens when we take probiotics. A moderate amount of Magnesium is also very good in general for our health.
I will try the probiotic's my wife will be happy she has been after me to get back on them.
I cannot take Magnesium because of the severe effect it has on my daily constitution. It is something that test show I need but I have yet to find one that my bowel can tolerate. I will check out the dosage of the Jig Saw brand.
