Blood sugar balance is the key to happy, healthy hormones and overall health. Continuous glucose monitors (CGM) are a helpful resource for identifying the root cause of blood sugar imbalances.
A continuous glucose monitor (CGM) is a device that continuously monitors your blood sugar levels. With today’s advanced technology, many CGMs connect directly to your phone via app, providing you with a live, real time reading, day or night. Over time, use of a continuous glucose monitor can help you track blood sugar patterns and trends, which allow you to make informed dietary decisions throughout the day.
Due to processed diets, stressful lifestyles, and poor eating habits, the occurrence of blood sugar imbalance in individuals is becoming an epidemic. Unfortunately, chronically imbalanced blood sugar levels can affect your energy levels, ability to concentrate, quality of sleep, weight, mood, and so much more. Common signs of blood sugar imbalances include:
While many of these symptoms are common– especially in women– they are not normal. The key is to identify the root cause of blood sugar issues. While blood sugar imbalances can be caused by genetics, they can also be brought on by lifestyle. Fortunately, there are many lifestyle and diet practices that can balance blood sugar levels and eliminate symptoms.
A continuous glucose monitor provides a non-stop report of your blood sugar levels. This device can provide you with invaluable insight regarding your health. Continuously monitoring your blood sugar levels can show you how various lifestyle factors (such as food, sleep, exercise, and stress) can impact your blood sugar levels– and, therefore, your symptoms.
When working with clients, CGMs are a game-changer in my practice because they give an insider’s look at the trends and patterns of blood sugar levels. This can help you identify the appropriate foods, portion sizes, and eating patterns that work best for you. In other words, CGMs allow you to uncover the diet and lifestyle practices that support balanced blood sugar levels. As previously noted, balancing your blood sugar can eliminate many common symptoms related to blood sugar imbalance.

White continuous glucose monitors can be a helpful tool for some, it is not for everyone. Using a CGM is advantageous for those diagnosed with PCOS, insulin resistance, Prediabetes, Diabetes, or Hypothyroidism. It can also aid those who experience regular symptoms of blood sugar imbalance.
However, it’s important to note that continuous glucose monitoring is not for those who have a history of disordered eating. Using a CGM daily can create obsessive thoughts around food, triggering negative food-related habits.
