What is Normal Glucose? – CGM In Healthy Subjects

What is Normal Glucose? – Continuous Glucose Monitoring Data from Healthy Subjects; Prof. Jens Sandahl Christiansen, Department of Endocrinology and Internal Medicine, University of Aarhus, Aarhus, Denmark



This is a great presentation…

Quite at odds with Bernstein’s view that normal glucose levels are precisely 83 all the time

An interesting thought would be what the range of normal glucose swings do for a person. I used to work in the pacemaker realm, and there were patients whose condition was improved by introducing a normal heart rate dispersion, where in the past they had had one heart rate due to pacemaker settings. Over time it may become apparent that a distribution of glucose levels are more healthy than a static value.

Of course we would need some really improved pumps to realize a static value…
