Glucose and Cholesterol tracking

Do you track personal information, hoping to gain insights into yourself or your surrounding world? Are you curious about people who do?  The Dublin Quantified Self group (#QSelfDublin) is for anyone interested in self-tracking. Whether you record your jogging times, how often you communicate with friends or how you are feeling - they would love to hear from you! 

How best to self-test for glucose, cholesterol and overall health.

Tools like home cholesterol testing kits and continuous glucose monitoring makes this more accessible to not only self-test but to bring figures back to healthy levels.

*Cholesterol*

Quantified Self HQ have recently been running a cholesterol testing experiment and have come up with some very interesting results. More details on this experiment here:

*Glucose*

Continus Glucose montoring gives a far better picture of how insulin resistance a person is. When monitoring on a day-to-day basis, we also get a picture of what produces the biggest spikes, and how to better manage the condition.

Speakers
- Azure Grant, member of the Quantified Self team, has been running the cholesterol experiment from San Francisco.
- Justin Lawler - coorganiser of the Dublin Quantified Self meetup group and has been running cholesterol and continuous glucose monitoring experiments over the last 6 months.
