the sugar challenge
Maintaining optimal blood sugar is important for preventing diabetes, hypertension and abnormal cholesterol (metabolic syndrome). Blood sugar also plays a critical role in how you feel and perform on a day-to-day basis.
Spikes and crashes in blood sugar can lead to:
Research shows that blood sugar response is difficult to predict and highly variable across individuals, even under identical dietary and lifestyle conditions. This is why generalized dietary recommendations can be very misleading.
CGM for Physician-Guided Self Discovery
The P4Mi Clinic now offers a cutting-edge continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) program that provides patients with deep insights about their unique blood sugar responses to lifestyle factors such as food, activity and sleep. Originally designed for diabetes management, CGM technology is a powerful tool for healthier living.
Each program participant will wear a CGM patch for 2 weeks while logging their food intake and activities, allowing them to understand their unique responses to:
Your favorite restaurant meals (you will be surprised!)
Combinations of foods
High-intensity exercise vs. moderate intensity exercise
Relaxation and stress
Natural alternatives to medicine such apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, berberine, etc.
The CGM program at the P4Mi Clinic will empower you to make easy, sustainable lifestyle changes that have major positive impacts on the way you feel, look and perform in your daily life.
Live Better With CGM Analytics
CGM as a Motivational Tool
Continuous glucose monitoring is not just about self-discovery: it is also a unique motivational tool that can help people improve their dietary choices. We all have a limited capacity for behavior change. For individuals who are trying to minimize or avoid their intake of processed carbohydrates and sweets, CGM provides immediate feedback. There is a big difference between being told that a donut is not a good dietary choice, and seeing a dramatic spike in blood sugar after indulging. For most people, the visceral feedback from a CGM will improve their capacity to maintain behavior change. With CGM, you cannot cheat.
CGM as a Source of Better Lifestyle Solutions
CGM analytics can give you more practical and sustainable solutions to health issues impacted by blood sugar fluctuations. The CGM program at P4Mi will empower you to make targeted changes that will have a significant impact on your unique health. That is the power of personalized actionable information!
