Sometimes I get so busy that I would forget to eat lunch, and then get headaches. I was curious if it had to do something with blood sugar. The CGM data was very insightful.

I joined because I was interested in weight loss and understanding my pre-diabetes risk. The CGM data helped me monitor my blood sugar and gave me excellent control over keeping my blood sugar flat.

A CGM is so much better than finger sticks. I realized I was having hypoglycemia overnight and spiking a lot in other situations. I used to eat dinner late, now I eat earlier and I'm incorporating more exercise.

What our patients say
I've been trying to stick to a super low-carb diet but it doesn't feel great and it's not sustainable. The CGM and my primary care doctor have really helped me find the right choices for me.

Frequently asked questions

  • Who is eligible?
    Currently, people between the ages of 18 and 65 who live in California and whose healthcare is not covered by Medicare or some other government programs are eligible to apply for the assessment. Those who are determined to be at risk for prediabetes will receive a CGM prescription.
  • What does this health assessment cost?
    The cost of the assessment will depend on your insurance coverage, but it should amount to the cost of a single provider visit when you follow the instructions provided in your care plan. You may be eligible for a voucher for a CGM device that you can provide to your local pharmacy or Alto Pharmacy, who will reach out to coordinate delivery of the device. We accept many types of insurance and offer options for self-pay.
  • What if I don’t have insurance?
    No insurance? No problem. We believe everyone deserves to understand their metabolic health and gauge their risks for future complications. That’s why we offer options for self-pay and are committed to cost transparency, so there are no surprises along the way.
  • Why metabolic health?
    Understanding your metabolic health is one of the fastest ways to reach your health goals and understand your risk for future health complications. 

    The CGM device takes our program a step further and provides the opportunity to learn how your blood sugar responds in real time to your meals, your physical activity, and other lifestyle factors. It lasts 14 days and provides about a hundred glucose readings per day, all while being discreet and painless.

  • Will a provider be monitoring my day to day blood sugar readings?
    A provider will not be monitoring your day to day blood sugar readings. However, at the beginning of the program, participants will be provided with material and instructions on how to use the CGM and properly read their blood sugar levels. It’s important to scan the sensor every eight hours (at least). Upon scanning, the device will transmit the previous eight hours of data. We recommend that participants book a provider visit ahead of time so they can ask questions and discuss the significance of their readings with a medical professional at the end of the program.
  • What is the expected response time after submitting a message to Carbon Health?
    You can expect to hear from central support within 24 hours of sending your first message. Any additional messages are typically answered within four hours. 
  • Does a CGM hurt?
    Continuous glucose monitoring allows you to obtain a complete record of your blood sugar levels without daily finger pricks and with very little to no discomfort, especially when compared to finger pricks.
  • How do I read my blood sugar levels?
    When you are reading your blood sugar levels, it’s important to look at the overall picture. Variations in your blood sugar levels throughout the day reflect how your body absorbs and stores glucose. People without diabetes typically see their blood sugar levels rise no more than 50 mg/dL with meals, while levels tend to fall below 100 mg/dL while fasting (for instance, overnight). People with prediabetes or diabetes are likely to see higher levels than these. You’ll have an opportunity to dive deeper into what your data means with your healthcare provider at the follow-up visit, so jot down a list of questions as you go!
