Sleep Apnea Dad Forced To Lose Weight After Being Given Two Years To Live
Former Overweight Sleep Apnea Dad Loses 17 Stone After Docs Gave Him Just 2 Years To Live.
"I couldn’t walk without getting out of breath. Playing with the children left me exhausted and I knew I had to do something and lose weight but didn’t know where to start".
He was 30 Stone at his heaviest. –“You have 2 years left to live.”– is what doctors told 32 year old, father of 3, Kayes Uddin.
Because of his vast weight caused by years of overeating and binging on Junk foods and sweets, Kayes developed a disorder known as Sleep Apnea.
Sleep Apnea is very common in overweight people, Sleep Apnea caused Kayes Uddin to stop breathing as much as 80 times per night.
The only solution for Kayes was simple, to lose weight or die.
Now a trim 13 stone, Kayes said: “Being diagnosed with sleep apnea was my lowest point. To be told my heart was stopping at night because I was so fat was terrifying. I was scared to sleep in case I never woke up.”
There are common types of Sleep Apnea:
- Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common type of sleep apnea. It occurs when the soft tissue inthe back of your throat relaxes during sleep and blocks the airway, often causing you to snore loudly.
- Central sleep apnea is a much less common type of sleep apnea that involves the central nervous system, occurring when the brain fails to signal the muscles that control breathing. People withcentral sleep apnea seldom snore.
- Complex sleep apnea is a combination of obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea.
Major Sleep Apnea Symptom:
If pauses occur while you snore, and if choking or gasping follow the pauses, these are major signs that you have sleep apnea usually due to being overweight weight with a serious need to lose weight.
Kayes Uddin Says: “It didn’t make sense because I was going to bed at the same time but woke feeling like I’d stepped out of the boxing ring.”
Kayes successfully lost over 17 stone a significant reduction from his former 30 Stone weight.
Kaye now walks to work everyday and regularly embarks on 3 mile runs.
He also completely changed his eating habits.
This is how a typical day might look for Kayes:
Breakfast: Lemon and water followed by weetabix or porridge
Snack: yoghurt or apple and bottle of water
Lunch: chicken or fish with salad or soup
Snack: low fat yogurt, sometimes blended with kiwi, pineapple and pumpkin seed
Dinner: Either fish or chicken with salad or vegetables, depending on what he had for lunch
Snack: bottle of water
