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!

I am seriously considering bilevel, and will be discussing it at my next appointment - which will be with a new doc, hopefully next month. My old doc left the practice for greener pastures somewhere... I really hope the new one is as amenable to the idea as he was.

Hello DariaVader,
I am new to the forum, I have new onset moderate pitting edema since began with my CPAP 1 month ago... - as your post was 1 year ago - did you meet with resolution? If so, would you kindly share on that? Thank you!

PS I am not seeking medical advice from this forum, as multiple posts offer warning on...I am simply interested in hearing of successes dealing with this issue.
