Your zzz time obviously impacts your energy levels, mood and day - but it also plays a large part in your metabolic health.
Tracking your sleep can help you learn how both your sleep affects your glucose, but also how your glucose affects your sleep. Perhaps a big peak right before bedtime impacts your rest, a day full of sugar makes you restless, or a pre-sleep yoga session helps you snooze.
Any sleep data that you track in Apple Health or Google Fit is automatically imported into Veri - so if you use a sleep tracking app, the sleep time settings in your phone, an Apple Watch or an Oura ring, that data will automatically appear on your timeline.
Once you're awake after a night's rest, you can open your sleep card and see how your blood sugar varies during the night. An interesting thing to look at is how it varies compared to your REM sleep cycles!
An important thing to note here is that it's extra easy to get odd readings during the night if you tend to sleep on your arms - the reduced or increased blood supply to the arm with the sensor can create false peaks.
Tracking your sleep also impacts your metabolic score, and helps you understand if e.g. a poor night of sleep might be impacting how you react to food during the day.
And with that, enjoy your zzz's! Make sure to check out the Help center for more articles on how sleep impacts your metabolic health, and reach out to us through the in-app chat if you have any other questions!
