118th Day of Therapy- Best night ever-Thanks Apnea Board
would not be at his point without your wisdom, insight, humor and hyperbole.
I can’t remember ever sleeping 7 hours. I have always been fascinated by people who sleep 8 or 9 or even 10.
Typically, (prior to Therapy) I would sleep between 2:15 and 3 hours and then wake up, make some water, and go back to bed. It’s been that way as long as I can remember. I always thought I slept well.
When I first went on therapy. My sleep cycle got screwed up by the therapy and I felt like crap. After about 7 weeks my sleep cycles normalized and I was back to my old sleeping cycle. I felt just like I did before therapy.
I continued to work on refining my sweet spot and improving the therapy. And whadoyaknow my sleep cycle started getting longer I started sleeping 3hrs or more on at least one cycle per night.
Last night I got closed to 5 hours on a sleep cycle 4:55 and broke the 7-hour barrier. So I have worked up at 4-month report for my doctor.
The longer sleep cycles seem to be reducing my insulin need. This may be coincidence. But I have had 4 hypoglycemic events in the last month and they all correlate with a 4 +hour sleep cycle. I plan to discuss this with him on my next visit.
it'll take more than a doctor to prescribe a remedy
