The Power of Continuous Glucose Monitors
Now, let’s talk about continuous glucose monitors. These devices are game-changers in the world of health and wellness. They provide real-time insights into blood glucose levels, helping individuals understand how their diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices impact their glucose levels. For those managing diabetes or prediabetes, CGMs are invaluable tools. But even for those simply seeking to optimize their health and wellness, understanding blood glucose fluctuations can be incredibly enlightening.
Oura and CGMs: A Powerful Integration
Now, imagine combining the power of Oura with the insights provided by CGMs. That’s exactly what Oura has done. They’ve announced integrations with three leading CGMs - Levels, Veri, and SuperSapiens.
With these integrations, users can now view their glucose data alongside their Oura data. This means you can see how your sleep quality impacts your glucose levels or how your activity levels affect your glucose fluctuations. It’s a holistic view of your health that empowers you to make informed decisions about your lifestyle.
