Thank you for sharing your experience with BP meds. I currently take a different ARB called Micardis. I am at the top dose of it, plus I take two other BP meds and still my BP is not where it should be. I have all but given up hope that I will ever find the right meds plus the right dose of those meds. I am not slim but I am trying to lose. I have a feeling I would have had sleep apnea even if I was slim. My Mother was a slim woman and snored like a trooper. She was never diagnosed but I wish she would have had a test to determine if she was. She is now deceased, so I will never know.
I see my GP at the end of this month and hopefully between the two of us, I can gain some information to work with from her.
I too was supposed to get the Climateline hose with my equipment a month ago but as luck would have it, the DME had run out and not received them yet. So, I went home with the Slimline hose. He said that during the summer when the air was naturally warmer, rain-out wouldn't be an issue and that I could get the Climateline hose when it was time to order a replacement which would coincide with the arrival of cooler weather. I would be so curious what they billed Medicare for....
You should be getting a statement from Medicare of whatever they pay out. I always check to make sure they bill for what I got.
