This technology has emerged out of the medical diagnostics field for diabetes treatment. Essentially it consists of a wearable device that you apply on the upper inner arm, which has a small, flexible and painless needle that inserts into the skin. This device records the glucose levels in your interstitial tissues.
Blood glucose is an important measurement for your health. Everyone responds differently to food. Basal blood glucose levels slowly rise as you age and having higher levels than average for your age is associated to looking older. It’s more than skin deep though: high blood glucose levels are associated to higher chances of disease and all cause mortality. Knowing how you react to foods empowers you to keep your blood glucose levels in a healthy range.
Applying the sensor is very easy. You don’t need any medical knowledge and placement is painless. Watch this video for the instructions.
The sensor that we currently use at Clear lasts for 2 weeks. After the 2 weeks, you can remove the sensor and throw it away. If you want more measurements, you can get a new sensor.
We know you have a busy life, and we design around it. You will receive the sensor per post. When you attach the sensor to your arm, you have started! This you can do when and wherever you want. If you need more support, it is possible to schedule a free introduction meeting with us. Following Clear is easily done via our app. The continuous glucose monitoring is done automatically, you don’t have to do anything other than put it on your arm at the beginning and let it sync with your phone. All we ask of you is to log your food in our app, so that we can tell you which food is and which is not for you.
For a fraction of the price of private dietitians and lifestyle coaches, you get a truly personalized food recommendation plan that’s evidence based and designed to keep you energized, manage weight and have long term health. You decide if that’s worth it.
To be eligible for Clear, you must: (1) be curious about your health (2) not have current serious health conditions (3) be over the age of 18 (4) have a smartphone with an NFC reader (the most modern smartphones have those). We’ll take care of the rest.
