Home sleep study said moderate sleep apnea w/severe oxygen saturation <70 & in-clinic study said no sleep apnea & perfect oxygen levels. Which right?

Home sleep study said moderate sleep apnea w/severe oxygen saturation <70 &  in-clinic study said no sleep apnea & perfect oxygen levels. Which right?

My reaction: Advise you to sit down with your doctor and go over both studies in full detail, as one of these is clearly WRONG. Although I would favor a clinic outcome due to presence of skilled personnel, I cannot clarify the outcomes from this perspective. Good luck with this. ...Read more

Always tired. Fitbit tracker says low sleep efficiency. Videotape confirmed constant tossing during sleep. Should I do a sleep study? Recommended tx?

Consult sleep clinic: Good sleep helps you feel healthy and vital. Sleep apnea (frequent awakenings due to low oxygen levels during sleep) can increase your risk of high blood pressure, heart rhythm problems, and even obesity! so consult a sleep doctor. If necessary, they will recommend a polysomnographic exam where they monitor your vital signs, movements, oxygen levels, and video your sleep in an overnight sleep lab. ...Read more

Name a website and android (methyltestosterone) app for searching calories in our food?

MyNetDiary is great: I personally use and recommend to my patients - mynetdiary as it has one of the most extensive databases available. If the food item is not included in the database you can enter the information, take a picture of the front and back of the item and it will be added to the database. For those patients with pcos or diabetes they have an excellent version focused on tracking carboydrates. ...Read more

Have ob apnea, use cpap nightly. Fatigue persists! could not nap for mslt. Rem sleep from 6-7am in overnight study. Rem interruption in am = fatigue?

? diet: I know this may sound strange but I have treated many cases of sleep apnea with a mixture of thiamine (vitamin b1), magnesium and a well rounded multivitamin. See a nutritionist for doses. But you have to give up all forms of sugar if you want to try this approach. Go to my blog "oxygen the spark of life" that you an google and see the post "sweet and dangerous". ...Read more

1 doctor agreed:

Likely not: Depends on what kind of monitoring you need. If you need monitoring of the sleep cycles, then I don't think there's an app that can do that. Discuss with your doctor about a formal sleep study if you trouble sleeping. ...Read more

Would red-tinted glasses increase sleepiness? Hypersomnia despite regular cpap use. Mslt normal. :(

Would red-tinted glasses increase sleepiness? Hypersomnia despite regular cpap use. Mslt normal. :(

What is your epworth score (search ess)? >40% are still too sleepy after CPAP regardless of light exposure (red or blue). If you are sleepy and not depressed/fatigue.. Nuvigil etc? ...Read more

Can slowness/difficulty in reading come from lack of detailed reading (looking at headings, titles, skimming/not reading content often) or dyslexia?

Either!: Skill and speed at reading certainly depends on practice! Every improves with practice, even with learning disorders.
