You would probably have heard of glucose monitoring as a way to track and assess the health level of a person, but what is glucose monitoring and what benefits does continuous glucose monitoring bring about?
Glucose monitoring is essentially measuring glucose levels, also known as blood sugar, throughout both the day and night. By tracking your glucose levels, you are able to make more informed decisions as you go about your day such as choice of food, medicines, as well as physical activity. Glucose monitoring is especially important for those who have a history of type 1 or type 2 diabetes. By tracking your blood sugar, you would be able to see the different factors that either increase or decrease your blood sugar. For example, what foods tend to significantly increase your blood sugar level? This data can then help you learn what foods you should be avoiding. Similarly, other than foods, you will also be able to find out if there are certain medicines or types of physical activity that you should avoid.
