I am mystified why my AHI is going up as I am losing weight, so far I have lost 23 lbs and have 30 to go. I know I was told that if the CA's were increasing, then that would possibly be not a big deal, but it's really the OA. I was having about 0.2 something or other and now it's up to 2.16 last night. Funny thing, I am sleeping very well, and hardly waking up and before I was waking up 2-3 times a night. My stats are:

I am not sure what to look for so I am attaching a screen shot of last night. Does this look like a REM issue? I was told that when you go through REM cycles you can have this happen, but I just don't know if that is the deal.
I think I remember reading a post by someone who lost significant weight and had to raise their therapy pressure. Probably not the norm but not necessarily something that needs to be worried about. It also might be your body readjusting.
Just keep on truckin' Marnid you are doing great.
You included the AHI graph which is unnecessary but excluded the event graph which I like to see. You also omitted the color key at the top of the image and I am not smart enough yet to remember which events are what color, but I can easily match them to the event chart.
