Today we look at what may or may not be affecting the adoption of continuous glucose monitors for the general public. Tune in today on Episode 1672 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.
“You’re not moving the earth here, it’s showing you the relative change and that’s valuable information.”
– Jimmy Moore
Continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) are increasing in popularity in the keto and carnivore community lately. Even people who don’t have diabetes are using them to do all kinds of experiments to test their carbohydrate tolerance, look at their post workout glucose, And to see in real time what impact stress is having on their blood sugar. I think just about anyone and everyone who cares about their health should be using a CGM as a way to track one of the most relevant markers in the body. In this episode of JIMMY RANTS on The LLVLC Show, I read from a new study published a couple of weeks ago in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition by a calorie hypothesis apologist researcher from the NIH named Kevin Hall who tested simultaneous use of the Dexcom G4 vs. Freestyle Libre CGMs to see if there was any disparity between the readings. Duh! He didn’t even have to do the study for me to tell him that this was true. Listen in today to get full details about the study designed to discourage people from using a CGM. When you don’t believe in the insulin hypothesis like Kevin Hall, why would you find value in using a continuous glucose device? Nice try Kevin but we’re not buying it. Check it out now!
