Working out and changed lifestyle to lose weight. Doc says I need sleep study due to overnight pulse ox reading. Should I be scared?

Working out and changed lifestyle to lose weight. Doc says I need sleep study due to overnight pulse ox reading. Should I be scared?

No: No and congrats on lifestyle changes. A sleep study is a diagnostic aid in helping to determine sleep apnea and if it is mild, moderate or severe. No need to have anxiety. If you are anxious, it may make the sleep study less effective because you may not be able to sleep to help the sleep lab get accurate readings.

I wanted to know when you sleep do you lose weight and if you do how much is lost?

I wanted to know when you sleep do you lose weight and if you do how much is lost?

A little: Your body is still burning up calories when you sleep, although at a slower rate than when you're active and when awake. So you do lose a tiny amount of weight when you sleep. How much depends on factors like your baseline metabolic rate, temperature of the room and how much you toss and turn when you're asleep.
