The AHI for the second study was 3.6. I've lost some weight and I've also adjusted some lifestyle choices.
I'll consider contacting my insurance to see if they will cover another study, I doubt they will though.
Perhaps the ENT can help me too... the receptionist says she sees a lot of patients with sleep disorders.
I think that "normal" might actually be < 5. But either way, you were borderline 10 years ago, have lost some weight, and are now 3.6. Good for you, seriously. And now you have an idea of what might happen in the next 10 years if you start to gain weight.
Not all sleep problems are due to apnea. Even the sleep study recommended getting some other checks to make sure there are no other physical issues, like polyps or whatever. Your ENT would be the next logical step.
