The Physical Performance Show: Kristina Skroce & Howard Zisser (MD) ‘Continuous Glucose Monitoring for Health & Performance’
In episode 350 of The Physical Performance Show Brad Beer shares a conversation with Kristina Skroce & Howard Zisser (MD) ‘Continuous Glucose Monitoring for Health & Performance’ in this Expert Edition.
Back on episode 344 we featured Phil Sutherland, who shared the backstory of continuous glucose monitoring in the formation of Super Sapiens. Many of us now recognise the black disks now being worn on the back of the triceps of many of the planet’s greatest endurance athletes, that is the Super Sapiens (CGM) continuous glucose monitoring device.
In this episode Dr Howard Zisser and his Super Sapiens colleague Kristina Skroce, Sports Physiologist, dive deeper and explain how this technology and science has morphed from the world of health care into the world of performance, and what CGM may look like in the decade ahead for both healthcare and sporting performance.
