RE: CPAP and pitting edema (fluid retention)
What srlevine1 said... Edema is one of the things which shows up as the kidneys begin to fail, or with diabetes - hence the 'diabetes socks'. The progression of kidney failure (chronic kidney disease) can be slowed if attended to early. Have you had your creatinine levels checked? My nephrologist didn't enlighten me for a long time; he thought my GP had told me.

Sorry to go off topic; I wish I could find a CKD forum as good as this one.

I have been on my cpap for 4 nights now and have the same problem except that my swelling is everywhere. I can hardly get a breath sometimes. My morning weight jumped 7 pounds from one day to the next. Very uncomfortable!
