When it comes to optimization, glucose is a key vital sign that indicates our metabolic health, and gives us actionable feedback on how our bodies are reacting to our lifestyle factors.
The truth is, we can’t improve what we aren’t actively monitoring, and thanks to Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) technology, it’s now possible to get real-time measurements and data that helps us make better nutritional choices.
What are the benefits of this data? How do we interpret it and use it to tweak our habits?
In this episode, registered dietitian nutritionist and the lead dietician at NutriSense, Carlee Hayes talks about how the Continuous Glucose Monitor works, and its importance in optimizing our health.
