Hello and hope you are doing well.

The most recent study is usually considered for therapy. If you persistently have symptoms of sleep apnea, you can opt for a repeat sleep study after a few months. In the meantime you could avoid taking alcohol and try to sleep on your side as this keeps the airways patent. If any nasal blocks try to keep them patent with OTC nasal decongestants. Aim for optimum weight with exercises or long walks and walk your way to sleeping well!!

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
