In 2023, technology is essential for a healthier life

Are you one of those people who shy away from dealing with technology? Read it! You might want to make an exception.

In 2023, it is estimated that the general public will have greater access to wearable technology and continuous glucose monitoring devices. Examples of wearable technology include fitness and food trackers, smartwatches, and sleep tracking rings.

Another type of technology that, while not new, will be hot this year is continuous blood glucose monitoring devices. People with type 1 and type 2 diabetes usually regulate their blood sugar using continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) devices. Currently, these devices are used by both pre-diabetic and non-diabetic people specifically for the purpose of preventing type 2 diabetes.

The main benefit of using this device is that it shows us almost immediately how our blood levels react to each type of food or drink we ingest. Blood levels vary from person to person depending on what you eat and drink. While for some eating an apple is reason enough to raise blood sugar, for others it is not. Additionally, how blood sugar reacts in each individual is influenced by microbiome, genes, physical activity, sleep quality, stress level, and type of diet. Persistently high blood sugar can contribute to the development of fatigue, depression, and brain fog. High blood sugar is also linked to the development of chronic and cardiovascular diseases.
