In your NutriSense app, you have some flexibility to adjust the app to best fit your goals.
To find your settings:
- Go into your app
- Go into the sidebar menu in the upper left-hand corner
- Select "Settings"
- Select "System"
From there you will be able to adjust several settings. Here are the key settings you can adjust:
This setting will help adjust the cadence you receive push notification reminders to scan your sensor. You can adjust the reminder from every 8 hours to more frequent reminders by adjusting the "reminder interval.” This may be helpful if you find yourself forgetting to scan regularly, which can result in missed data, especially overnight. Remember that the sensor can only hold up to 8 hours of data, so longer durations will result in data gaps.
Glucose Low & High Threshold
Your glucose graph will be pre-set to the "green" (green = good) zone being 70-140 mg/dL. You can adjust the upper and lower thresholds if you have a different glucose goal. You might have a lower threshold if your glucose runs low, or if you are following a ketogenic diet. You might have a higher threshold if you are working on managing diabetes. Work with your dietitian to find the right threshold for you! Check out this article for more information on “normal” glucose values.
Daily Macro Goals
This is where you can adjust your goals for calories, protein, fat, and carbs. You can also adjust your settings to calculate net carbs instead of total carbs if you prefer to focus on that metric. This may be useful if you follow a ketogenic diet or are working on reducing your intake of carbohydrates in general. If you’re following a calorie-controlled diet for weight management, adjusting the calorie threshold make help you stick to your goals and allow your coach to work with you to fine-tune your intake. Similarly, if you are aiming to hit a protein goal, adjusting your protein needs can help you hit your target more regularly! If you would like assistance with finding the right macronutrient needs for your body, your coach can help, and logging as much as possible in the app will make sure it’s personalized to you.
This will be the window of time you are normally fasting. If you are only fasting when you are sleeping, your window might be 11 pm-7 am. If you fast for longer each day, you can set this to your normal routine. This fasting window will then calculate some statistics related to your overnight glucose average and an estimated morning glucose value. You can find these metrics under the "analytics" tab. Experimenting with your fasting window can help optimize your glucose values, as our bodies respond to foods differently, dependent upon the time of day. If you’d like to learn more about the optimal fasting window for you, please reach out to your coach for more information.
