spirulina, vit d?
I still have wheezing when I exhale but I still wheeze and squeak when I exhale.  I take extra shots of my inhalers but it doesn't seem to help, maybe the nebulizer might.
I've been trying spirulina and vitamin D a little- I read one claim online that spirulina controlled someone's asthma as well as inhalers, but I don't notice a big difference in my sleep breathing problems and asthma

it's really weird I don't understand how I got sleep apnea, central apneas and now after a bad flu I wheeze all the time when I exhale

Hi  you may want to go back to your doctor to be re-evaluated in case you need to be on an inhaled steroid and be followed.  Welcome to our community!

vitamin D is defintely a good thing to take whether or not you have asthma.  Other vitamins to talk to a naturopath or doctor about that can help asthma are N-acetyl-cysteine (VERY good for extra mucus), magnesium (relaxes muscles), omega 3 oils (anti-inflammatory so like steriods just not as potent and few side effects) and CoQ10 (powerful antioxidant).

Hopefully you feel better soon!

I've tried advair, symbicort, dulera and dulera seems to be the best along with singulair... I think spiriva helps and I'm not sure if I have COPD
I was starting to give up so I stopped the nebulizer treatments but am restarting the combivent on nebulizer

I don't know why I wheeze on exhale all the time after taking azithromycin for 6 weeks and having a bad 8 week flu even the inhaled steroids don't really help

I'm on an asv and oxygen for sleep apnea but it doesn't seem to be that effective.  I've tried MANY settings- does anyone know a good ASV setting like should you go with a higher more uncomfortable epap and ps max/min to reduce AHI?

how much vit D can you take safely daily?  I read the upper limit might be 2,000IU/day?  but doctors will prescribe 50k/week
I think it's better to divide the doses to prevent kidney damage

vitamin D normal levels are 2000-4000IU a day depending on body mass.  Anything higher than that should only be tried with a doctor's orders.  

I don't know much about sleep apnea and thus can't help you with setting levels but hold on and maybe you will get some answers from the others on the forum.
