Hey Jason...For the past 6 years or so I have had chronic elevated inflammatory markers, ESR & Crp, marked as highly elevated. I always wondered if sleep apnea can cause those markers to be elevated? Hopefully you will know the answer to this! Thanks so much!!

it's entirely likely that apnea would cause elevated inflammatory markers, OSA causes you to have greatly elevated stress hormones as your body fights for air all night long, that and the other side effects of it very likely do cause inflammation.

(note, the above is just a guess based on a lot of various tidbits and no actual googling for studies or such on the subject)

Terri, did your doctor order labs that included CRP? Did they do any follow-up work or discuss your inflammation with you? Many conditions can cause inflammation, like infection, injury, or serious diseases. Chronic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or fibromyalgia can result in high inflammation.

If your doctor has evaluated you for serious conditions and isn't concerned about the inflammation, you could look at reducing inflammation on your own by changing your diet, such as Whole30. My husband was evaluated for a condition called Chiari, and since he was not a candidate for surgery, the neurosurgeon recommended that we do a Whole30/paleo type diet to cut out processed foods, sugar, grains/flour, dairy, etc. My husband won't do it, but I have, and I feel a lot better.

I also have an autoimmune condition that causes hypothyroidism and cutting out wheat and grains has helped a lot. Modern wheat is hybridized and many people have an autoimmune reaction to it without even realizing it. I didn't notice much of a difference until I had been on it about a week. If you decide to give it a try, it's only 30 days, you don't have to do it for life if you don't want to, and it's simple enough for most people to follow. You could try it for a certain period of time and get follow-up blood work to see if your inflammation status has changed, if you want.
