I had a low blood sugar episode last night. This is the first one I have had using the APAP. My AHI for that sleep segment was 12.8 all scored as OE Yet none of the other indicators Flow Rate, Flow limit or time in apnea reflect what I normal see when my AHI is elevated.
I went back to sleep after getting some milk and my AHI for the was .98 and the Flow Rate, Flow limit and time in apnea look typical which is a mix of HI CA and OA.
Does anyone have any experience with this?
Doe the Hypoglycemia effect the Algorithms ?
it'll take more than a doctor to prescribe a remedy

I have Type 2 and experience hypoglycemia. Never thought about the times I wake up shaky if it bothered the AHI or not.

I also have Type 1 and have encountered the hypoglycemic episodes you experienced. I guess when my Dexcom CGM "alerts" me to a low, that is all I can think about at the time. Sometimes I feel like I could eat everything in the refrigerator.
