Blood Glucose Management

On average, people with diabetes incur average medical expenditures of about $13,700 per year - more than twice higher than what expenditures would be in the absence of diabetes. The costs are a pale indicator of the actual impact of this common health problem, which requires exhaustive self-management.

Monitoring and conditioning the cardiovascular response to glucose intake provides helpful insights on how diet, exercise, and medication influence metabolic activity. Such insights are also helpful in managing body weight.
