As biohackers, and as women with a curiosity for optimal performance, we have found so much useful and data and anecdotal evidence from our Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGM. Our glycemic responses are not just reactive and relative to food, but to exercise, stress, sleep, emotional and even environmental factors. In this episode we share the basics on glucose testing, what causes spikes and drops in our glucose, and a comparison of our genetics for blood sugar imbalance risk factors.
