What is Continuous Glucose Monitoring?

CGMS, Nutrition, Best combo, Khushboo Jain Tibrewala

Do you randomly start feeling tired, confused, and weak? This could be because of rollercoaster-like ups and downs in your blood glucose levels.

This is more common than most of us can even imagine. And it is not restricted to people with Diabetes. This happens to most people today.

These fluctuations lead to chemical chaos in your body.

Each time your glucose levels are up, there’s a surge of dopamine, there’s more fat storage, there is also more glycation (or ageing) of cells and it slowly and gradually is leading you towards insulin resistance-related disorders like PCOS, Type 2 diabetes, Obesity and more.

Irrespective of your age, maintaining stable glucose levels is a must, especially today!

 

Up until just 5-8 years ago, there were very few and ineffective ways of knowing this. But now, we can know better.

We now have a monitoring system that works 24×7 like a personal detective, making life simple.

This system is called Continuous Glucose Monitoring or CGM. Its a simple NFC reader that is attached to your arm for 14 days and it shares 20+ glucose readings through the day.

This device is the reason we can now Reverse Diabetes.

PS: If you already know what CGM is, I have a CGM Community Program coming up. You can see details and sign up if you like – CGMS Community By Khushboo

What’s the Buzz about CGMS?

CGMS is a biosensor that is worn to get data about blood glucose levels in “real time”. This device helps us understand exactly how glucose levels are moving through the day, what causes a spike, what causes a crash and what keeps them stable. (1)

This device helps you make smarter, targetted changes to your food and lifestyle efforts and helps monitor glucose levels without daily pricks.

The CGMS Advantage

As Indians, our love for food is immense. However, the dishes we enjoy can significantly impact our blood glucose levels, often in correlation with activities like sports, walking, and stress, etc. But with CGMS, you can have:

      1. Better Control: With real-time data, you can make informed decisions about your diet, exercise, and medication.
      2. Less Guesswork: No more wondering what your blood sugar is doing; you’ll have the info at your fingertips.
      3. Peace of Mind: Alerts and continuous tracking mean you can catch issues early, reducing the risk of severe highs and lows.
      4. Personalized Insights: Over time, you’ll learn how different foods, activities, and stress levels affect your glucose, allowing you to tailor your lifestyle for better health.

Let’s say ‘no more’ to those constant finger pricks or guessing games – just straightforward continuous data about what’s happening inside your body.

Join Our CGMS Community!

So, I started a small CGMS community where for 14 days I try to figure out the best options for my clients by keeping a check on their blood sugar levels, and the outcomes were remarkable

3 Fun Experiment with Our CGMS Community
1. The Surprising Power of Ghee!

My grandma always used to say that the best remedies for great health can be found right in our kitchen. Well, we decided to put this age-old wisdom to the test with our CGMS community. We tested out some popular home remedies for controlling blood sugar levels. We tried cinnamon water, methi seeds, lemon water, etc. You name it, we did it!

But guess what? The most surprising and effective solution turned out to be something so simple and traditional: 1 teaspoon of ghee!

Yes, you read that right—good old ghee stole the show.

Ghee helped with:

      1. Improved Blood Sugar Levels: Ghee helped keep their glucose levels stable throughout the day, making it easier to manage their health.
      2. Boosted Energy: Felt more energetic and lively, ready to take on whatever the day threw at them.
      3. Reduced Glucose Spikes: The immediate spikes in blood sugar after meals were noticeably lower, leading to more balanced and predictable glucose

2. Rice to the Rescue!!

I know right, who could have imagined that rice could actually be best friends with blood sugars. But yes, with the CGMS community, we included different cereals in their diet like jowar, ragi, quinoa, amaranth and of course, rice. And guess what?

Rice emerged as the clear winner!

During our experiment, we expected some increase with each cereal. But rice? It spiked blood sugar levels the least compared to the other cereals.

Rice has often been painted as the bad guy when it comes to blood sugar, but our experiment proved otherwise. This just goes to show how media can shape our perceptions. Rice isn’t the culprit it’s made out to be—it’s actually quite a friendly carb!

(We also tested cooked and cooled rice, but due to limited data, we couldn’t draw definitive conclusions about its effects. The mystery remains, and we’re excited to explore it further!) 

Let’s Get Moving!

In the community, we also introduced fun and easy activities like a 15-minute walk, 20 squats, climbing stairs, and more.

The result? An immediate drop in blood glucose levels by 30-35 points!

But that’s not all!! The members also had an increased energy levels, improved mood, and a greater sense of well-being throughout the day. These activities are simple to integrate into your daily routine and can be done anywhere, whether at home, in the office, or while running errands.

It’s incredible to see how incorporating these small, everyday activities into our routine can have such a powerful impact on our health. Who knew that staying active could be this easy?
