Continuous Glucose Monitoring: Start Here


I’ve been tracking my glucose levels 24 x 7 using a continuous glucose monitor from Abbott Labs called the Freestyle Libre. Read all about it in my new article at NEO.LIFE: “Personalized health advice every 60 seconds”.

Here are the slides from a presentation I gave to the Seattle Quantified Self Show & Tell #31 (January 2019) (also available on Youtube).

Read (and edit!) my Continuous Glucose Monitoring Hackers Guide for details for how to get started, plus as many resources as I know about other apps and links that you might find useful for beginning your own CGM analysis.

I’ve written some R code to automatically generate some fancy charts using my CGM data. You can see it all in my Github repo.
