Good way to express it my doctor calls it organ efficiency. Which is dependent on respiration during sleep.

RE: OSA and Type 1 Diabetes
Thanks so much for this! My endo practices at Vanderbilt where he is also a professor. I am going to take this info with me on my next visit and see what he can come up with. My PCP did not think it was feasible for an under-110 lb. athletic woman, diabetic or not to have sleep apnea. I hope the endo will look into it. Clearly additional research would be helpful!

Thanks thanks so much for the information!!
