The Quantified Self Approach to Lowering Blood Glucose
Justin Lawler has been using a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) to lower his blood sugar and improve his health. His latest post describes eight different lifestyle changes he has made around meals, exercise and sleep to avoid becoming diabetic.
Comparing before and after:
Fasting glucose down 7%
Daily average down 12%
Spikes are lower — I used to spike over 180 regularly
Levels come down faster after meals
Low carb breakfasts actually
lower glucose levels Levels are higher at night — related to later meals and more carbs in my evening meals, to
help with my sleep.
After three months I’ve improved my glucose control — achieved without major lifestyle changes.
Most importantly I’ve reversed my trend towards pre-diabetes (above 100). My fasting glucose levels are now 90, down from 97.
