Living alone, I have no one to tell me if I snore, or stop breathing. At 67, probably not a bad idea to have a study!!
As for EATING FOR YOUR TYPE....don't bother.....it is all a scheme. God gave us all to the herbs , fruit and veggies for us to eat, and he didn't name a TYPE....he also gave meat for all.
Setting out to eat a well balanced diet, is superior to getting crazy with blood types and food!!!
MY NEW saying: (borrowed from Delila)

CPAPs can work wonders for a variety of physical problems. My husband has been on one for almost 15 years now.

Isn't it strange that lack of potassium contributes to high blood pressure but also taking potassium can raise blood pressure.
One day at a time; one pound at a time.
Lack of sleep (possibly due to a sleep disorder you don't know you have)
Lack of food (being hungry or not eating enough)
Lacking Vitamins and Minerals (pottasium, magnesium along with others)
Lack of exercise
Allergies to foods (Check out the book "Eat Right 4 Your Type")
Here's my story below:
In my early 30's my always perfect blood pressure began to slowly falter and I was put on meds. I was not the perfect patient for the first 8 years. Then I finally decided to try and lose weight and cut salt as the doctor suggested. After cutting out salt almost completely, losing weight, taking lots of supplements including pottasium and magnesium and taking my meds faithfully my blood pressure continued to rise. I gave up after a year and after a few months of no medication I started experiencing severe headaches. I went to a new doctor and he put me back on meds. Less than a week later I was back with a headache and the doctor began to ask me questions in an attempt to figure out what was causing my bp to be high regardless of whether I was on meds or not. She asked me if I snored, which I do and if anyone ever told me I stopped breathing when I was asleep, which they had not. She suggested a sleep study. I went and the results were terrifying to me. I stopped breathing an average of 31 times per hour! I was always sleepy and now I knew why. I was not able to fall into the deepest sleep which is REM because of my new found medical condition sleep apnea! Struggling to breath at night would put an excess strain on my heart and would prevent my blood pressure from dropping at night. I would often wake up with my heart racing! It took 10 years to discover this problem and now that I sleep with a cpap machine, eat a healthy diet of foods compatible with my blood type and take my medication as I should I am now ready to lose weight again and see if it works this time.
