In the same way that you can measure distance in different units (e.g. miles vs. kilometers), glucose can be measured in milligrams of glucose per deciliter of blood (mg/dL) or millimoles of glucose per liter of blood (mmol/L). The Supersapiens app only displays glucose readings in milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) and is able to show readings between 55 mg/dL and 200 mg/dL.
Today’s Glucose Exposure is a key metric you can use to manage your Average Glucose level throughout the day. Glucose Exposure on the Supersapiens app represents the total amount of glucose you have exposed your body to, updated every hour. Set your Daily Exposure Limit to track the total amount of glucose you want to expose your body to each day. Aim to stay within it and empower positive intra-day behavior change. Daily Exposure Limit is connected to your daily Target Average Glucose. For example, if your daily Target Average Glucose is set to 90 mg/dL, then your daily Exposure Limit will be 2160 mg (90 mg/dL x 24 hours in the day). Set your goals and then check your Glucose Exposure chart frequently to stay on track. Too little or too much Exposure leading into a performance demand can impact athletic performance.
Glucose Zones are a key metric you can use to discover your optimal fuel ranges for every type of event. Glucose Zones on the Supersapiens app represent 10 unique fuel ranges. Optimal fuel ranges will vary based on your individual body and the type of activity, so it's important to have visibility to your own glucose data. Training or racing outside of your optimal fuel range (Glucose Performance Zone) can negatively impact athletic performance. Correlate Glucose Zones with performance outcomes to discover your optimal fuel range and then maintain your Glucose Performance Zone during an event to sustain your peak performance through the finish line.
Glucose Snapshot is a report of your last 3 hours of data generated by NFC scanning your biosensor with your compatible device. Take them as often as possible to keep up with data trends and ensure that you are retrieving any missed data from the last 8 hours. The Glucose Snapshot includes your Glucose Line, Glucose Min, Glucose Max, Last 3h Average Glucose, Last 3h Glucose Variability, Primary Zone, and Time Below Average. You can compare to your previous Glucose Snapshot and easily create an Event with this data.
