The blood DHEAS levels are measured by what are called immunoassays.

I could find no evidence of Obs, Sleep Apnea being related to low DHEAS level.

Assuming that there is a well documented, valid reason to use CPAP my advice is that you seek a way to avoid not using it for 3 years.

Sorry, I can’t answer your question about carotid arteries.

Good luck
