Continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) are small, wearable sensors used to measure the sugar in your body.
They give instant feedback on which foods and lifestyles are best for your health goals.
At Veri, we go a step beyond and translate CGM readings into trends and scores. Our app makes it easy for people who aren’t necessarily glucose experts (aka:everyone) to stick with healthy habits.
CGMs are used for every problem that can come from blood sugar spikes. Here are some of the surprising issues that people use CGMs for:
The main reason you’d want to use a CGM is if you’ve tried multiple diets without seeing results. CGMs help you see exactly which foods trigger insulin and fat storage in *your* body, which helps you tailor your diet with precision.
Seeing how your blood sugar responds to even the healthiest foods is an eye opener.
(Spoiler: some people spike from 'health foods' like sweet potatoes just as if they'd eaten a dessert.)
With Veri, you'll learn the foods, habits, and glucose hacks that will help you hit your health goals while still enjoying nights and weekends out being a human ;)
We useAbbott’s FreeStyle Libre glucose sensor, which is around the size of a double-stacked quarter.
It sits on the back of your upper arm and pairs with your phone through NFC technology. So whenever you want to check your glucose, all you have to do is scan the sensor with your phone.
(Think it’s safe to say that the future has arrived 😂)
The sensor automatically measures your glucose every minute and stores eight hours of information. You can wear it for up to 14 days.
And you don’t have to change your lifestyle to wear a CGM: Showering, exercising, and even swimming up to one meter deep are fine.
With Veri, your sensor is covered by a sleek, dare we say sexy, patch. So you don’t have to worry about catching your sensor on a doorway.
Not a chance. There wouldn’t be over 400,000 people using our particular sensor worldwide if it hurt.
The Freestyle Libre detects your glucose with a rubbery filament –not a needle!
(Just FYI: the sensor applicator uses a needle only to place the filament in your arm. But you can’t even feel it.)
And after the 14-day sensor cycle is over, you just peel it off like a band-aid.
Generally, you’ll get the most benefit from wearing a CGM for at least two consecutive months.
This is enough time to help you gain the deepest understanding of your metabolic health:
which foods spike your glucose, which foods create stability, and how much sleep/exercise you need for balanced glucose.
Many people use a CGM indefinitely because they want to continue their amazing results.
Continuous glucose monitors are a safe, pain-free technology that you can use to reverse the effects of processed foods and crash dieting.
