A recent Stanford study revealed that 80% of healthy people had blood sugar spikes. 

Why does this matter? 

Because blood sugar spikes are dangerous when they occur often enough or for long periods of time and can cause...

  • Weight gain 
  • Cravings
  • Energy dips
  • Mood crashes 

...and increased risk of conditions such as insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease, reproductive issues, and cancer. 

But the silver lining is there is now a way for EVERYONE to see exactly what is happening with their blood sugar in real-time using continuous glucose monitoring (CGM).  

Wearing a CGM allows you to identify the foods that are not working for you and find YOUR perfect diet. This is exactly what we talk about in today’s podcast with glucose expert and Lead Dietician at Nutrisense, Carlee Hayes. Here are some of the valuable insights we discuss...

  • Signs you have a blood sugar issue

Many people today suffer from hormonal imbalance.
