I've just begun doing a longer-term juice fast (mostly vegetables), and I'm seeing some odd results with my S9 Autoset. I don't always look at the data, but will tomorrow. The data the machine's been reporting has been low enough that I don't usually bother. My typical night averages an AHI of 1.4. From 0.4 to 2.4 is common.
I've just finished day 4 of my fast; I started on Saturday morning. I've done a number of juice fasts over the years, so I know most of what to expect, and I'm focusing mostly on vegetable juices these days, unlike in the past when I tilted more towards fruit juices.
Saturday night I had the best sleep I've had in weeks if not months, over 8 hours with an AHI of 0.4.
Then Sunday & Monday nights I woke up (external causes) after 6.5 hours of sleep each night, both with an AHI of 8.2.
I've dropped ~10 lbs so far and I seem to be tolerating the fast pretty well overall. Good energy, light exercise, not much in the way of weird fasting sensations. I'm certain that dropping weight will improve the apnea, overall... but this speed bump certainly seems odd.
Has anyone else had odd experiences like this?
Thanks in advance.
