Jana Beck on Learning from over 100,000 Blood Glucose Readings

July 6, 2012

Jana Beck was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was 19 years old and has been interested in tracking her health ever since. Last year when she received a continuous blood glucose monitor she decided to take a more active role in understand what was effecting her blood glucose levels and insulin dosing. Spurred by reading about carbohydrate restricted diets, she decided to see if she could see changes in her blood glucose readings and as a result of changing her diet. In this talk at the New York QS Meetup she describes exactly what she found and shares some really neat visualizations that help tell her story.
