To help you understand your metabolic health so you can take action, Veri calculates a Daily Score.

The Daily Score is a dynamic score that integrates vital science-backed lifestyle and glucose contributors into a singular measure, with a maximum score of 100. You should aim for 80-100 each day, but life happens and perfection is not the goal. Don’t beat yourself up if you don’t make it to 80, try something different the next day!

To access your Daily Score, tap the Daily Score widget on your Timeline. Make sure to scroll down to see all of the contributors. You can tap any contributor to learn more.

Think of your Daily Score as your North star in your journey to achieve optimal metabolic health. If you get a low score, check out the contributors to see where you should focus your attention.

The Daily Score is designed to show you the food and lifestyle factors (inputs) that ultimately affect your glucose control (outputs) so that you can focus on building habits. Factors like meal timing, fasting windows, sleep, exercise, and activity are well supported in the research as key contributors to metabolic health. The resulting output is better time in range and glucose variability. We find our members have better outcomes when focusing on inputs rather than outputs because there is a clearer and more tangible action to be taken.

The major contributors to your Daily Score are: meal scores, meal timing (the time between your last meal and bedtime), fasting window, along with key lifestyle factors, like sleep quantity and quality, and physical activity/exercise.

Meals have the most impact on your score, followed by sleep, then exercise.

Tip: Water, tea, and coffee logged by themselves (no cream, sugar, etc.) will not break your fasting window! We call them "fasting-friendly" - you can learn more here.

Things to keep in mind about your glucose readings:

While it is good to aim to have as few spikes as possible, it is important to accept some spikes as part of life.

In order to have a completely flat graph, you'd have to stop eating! You can even have spikes from intense exercise. So it is not about trying to get a flat glucose line, but seeing trends and learning from what you do, when, and how.

One tip is to check in on your Meal Score if you go for a walk after a meal, or drink some apple cider vinegar diluted in a glass of water before a meal. Our community is a great place to read and learn more, as well as on tips/tricks you may want to try. If you haven't already, please do join our online community of users from around the world. 💫

One important aspect to keep in mind is that like any data, your blood sugar data is also not 100% accurate - the values can be within +/- 20 mg/dL range of the laboratory tested blood glucose value. Also sometimes, the sensor might give temporarily invalid readings. Always go by how you feel as well with the low readings. We hope this is helpful but do get in touch if you have questions 😊
