Sleep Apnea – I’m done with it!

I no longer have sleep apnea! Last year I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and had to use C-Pap machine or get a dental device to treat my sleep apnea.  Great news is that I no longer have sleep apnea!  How?  I lost 35 lbs in the past two years.  Last year when I got diagnosed for sleep apnea, I was about 330-35 lbs heavier than I am now.  I lost weight so I went back to my neurologist and took another sleep test.  And she told me my AHI was in the normal range.  She said I should still avoid sleeping on my back and recommended some devices, way cheaper and more comfortable than C-Pap machine.  So I’m just going to post them here.  This is not an advertisement, just a public service announcement of sorts.  After I checked out websites, I decided to use my fanny pack, the kind you wear around your waist like when you are running or something, going to fill it with some old clothes and wear it around my chest when I go to sleep.  Cheapest training device was $79, and can be upwards of few hundred dollars depending on what the device is capable of doing.  So anyway, in case you want a more comfortable and cheaper solution to improving your health and managing your sleep apnea, see below.

My Neurologist recommended the following:
