CGMs first allowed individuals living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes to monitor their blood glucose levels constantly and informed them when to use external insulin. If an individual’s blood glucose levels spiked after a meal, they would know about the increase immediately due to the CGM. As these devices became more popular, they proved essential for managing diabetes.
For those without diabetes, CGMs can still be utilized in their wellness journeys. In fact, studies reveal that non-diabetics have larger fluctuations in their glucose levels than previously thought, and finding ways to stabilize glucose proves beneficial for health in many ways, such as:
- Weight loss
- Weight maintenance
- Building muscle
- Consistent energy and mental focus
- Optimal fueling strategy for peak athletic performance
- Lower and control inflammation
- High-functioning immune system
- Lower risk of chronic diseases
As we wait for more peer-reviewed studies on the benefits of CGM use in non-diabetics, a CGM program can provide visibility into how everyday life, such as quality of sleep, getting cut off on the freeway, or enjoying a still-warm cookie, affect your glucose. This personalized blood glucose data can prove invaluable not only for weight loss efforts but also for a better quality of life.
Signos is so much more than just a CGM. The Signos platform can help people short-circuit the cycle of glucose spikes, insulin release, and the storage of excess glucose as fat. By better tracking glucose sensitivity, we can help those who are at risk of developing diabetes. We’re working toward a healthier future for everybody by enabling insight into personal metabolic data that has never before been accessible to non-diabetics in this way.
