  1. Hi,
    I am on CPAP therapy and have a 99.3% compliance to using it.  My question is this.  If I am still getting only 5.5 – 6 hour per night, is it possible I am still doing my body damage?  The criteria for successful sleep apnea therapy seems to be this:  If there is no excessive day time sleepines, then you are doing fine.  But could I be causing a hormonal balance, such as with apetite hormones, ghrelin and leptin, because I only average 6 hour per night.  I found it impossible to lose weight, and it seem I am hungry much of the time.  Most of my meals are raw fruit and vegetables, salads, subarmines, home-made smoothies and soup.
    I have a Zeo that measures and records my sleep phases and cycles.  According to the standard percentages, that is–Light, 55%; Deep, 15%; REM, 25%–I am high on my REM sleep.  Getting as much as 45% in a night.  This shorts me in my deep sleep sometimes.
    Does my body pretty much adjust my percentages to what my needs are?  Is 45% REM something to be concerned about?

  2. Mr. Limkeman,

    It may be that what you're experiencing is something called REM rebound, where chronic sleep deprivation leads to a increase in REM sleep. Your percentages seem adequate, although the REM period is a bit high. It sounds like you need to increase your sleep time somewhat. Based on what you're describing, it still sounds like you're sleep deprived, either quantity or quality wise. This may be what's making you hungry and difficult to lose weight. Have you had a formal sleep study recently? If so, does the formal study correlate with your Zeo?
