Back home and a new diagnosis

Jude’s back home but a day late. They wanted to get the outcome of his recent sleep study and……Obstructive Sleep Apnea. It is, we’re told, mild. Errr, and that’s pretty much all we’ve been told. Thankfully, wikipedia stepped in. Possibly due to enlarged tonsils and/or adenoids, possibly due to his muscle tone, maybe both, maybe neither – I guess we’ll find out at the next appointment.

Jude’s keto diet means that all his old medications are gone and replaced with tablets that have to be crushed and dissolved, all of which could block up the tube. Much more complicated now.

His Ketones are still on the low side – they need to be hitting between 4 and 5 and so far they’ve been below 2, usually below 1. I guess there will still need to be tweaks to his diet. Matthew’s Friends is a decent site for information on the Ketogenic diet.

He’s home, he’s happy and so are we.
