RE: Lost Weight, AHI went sky high
Any thoughts on why your leak rate is so erratic? Is your mask or cushion aging?

New within the last 2 months. I’m a side sleeper and the pillow is a little hard. I could make it tighter I guess.

You might want to review the mask fit article in the wiki. Going tight isn't always the best answer. Some tend to go too tight and get more leaks and pain.
