To get the most out of your CGM, you will want to understand how different meals are impacting your glucose levels. Creating experiments allows you to visualize different food tests you are trying and compare your results in one place. There are two types of experiments: automatic and manual

For a more in-depth discussion on experiments, please read our Experiment guide.

Automatic experiments

Automatic experiments allow you to group meals together that have the same key words. You may create experiments for wine, yogurt, bread, or anything else you want to monitor!

Creating an automatic experiment:

  1. Navigate to the Experiments section in the navigation drawer
  2. Tap the Plus button in the top right corner
  3. Give the experiment a title and a description and select Automatic 
  4. Type a search query for your experiment (e.g. rice or chocolate+coffee or blueberries,strawberries,raspberries) See the experiment guide for more advanced search query examples.
  5. Optionally select a start and end date for the experiment. (If you leave this empty then the experiment will continue to show meals that match the search as you log them.) 
  6. Optionally adjust the time frame collection. By adjusting the time slider to 4am-10am you can better capture meals that would only be consumed as breakfast for you.
  7. Tap save. The experiment will automatically populate with all meals that match your search.

Manual experiments

Manual experiments allow you to group any type of meal together. You may use the manual experiments to group together meals that do not have similar ingredients, such as your post-workout fuel. 

Creating a manual experiment:

  1. Navigate to the Experiments section in the navigation drawer
  2. Tap the Plus button in the top right corner
  3. Give the experiment a title and a description and save
  4. Add meals to the experiment by tapping the three dots on a meal card and tapping Add to Experiment
