Heads Up Signals provides health professionals with a suite of CGM reports to better monitor and manage their clients’ glucose levels. Through the master dashboard, individual drill-down, the Cohort Performance Over Time report, Out of Range, Week over Week Improvement dashboards and Data Export report, health professional teams can identify areas of out of range, fluctuations, and improvements quickly. These reports allow for tracking of trends over time, and help health professionals better understand their clients’ glycemic control.
With these automated reporting tools, health professionals can then use this information to motivate and inspire their clients to take positive and informed actions towards maintaining their glucose levels. Ultimately, Heads Up Signals provides a comprehensive set of reports for health professionals to efficiently manage their clients’ glucose levels.
These reports have been designed to provide users with a clear overview of all the CGM and glucose statistics of their practice in one place, enabling easy identification of individual users who may need closer monitoring. The reports also allow for detailed analysis of the performance of specific cohorts, helping health professionals see glucose trends over time and identify areas for improvement.
The list of Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) suite includes:
Cohort Performance Over Time
Individual Drill Down
Out of Range
The Out of Range report is another useful feature that highlights instances where different users may be exceeding safe levels, providing an early warning of potential concerns. The Week over Week Improvements report enables users to monitor positive trends in glucose levels and highlight the success of individuals in their practice. Lastly, the ability to export raw data is perfect for those who wish to analyze the data outside the platform. Overall, these new reports offer a powerful toolset for professionals to manage patient glucose data and monitor changes in real-time, in one single platform. Sign Up.
The new CGM Glucose Related Stats Master Dashboard showcases four key stats: average glucose, standard deviation of glucose, the time and range between 70 and 120, and the percentage of readings above 140. These stats are conditionally formatted to support ease of understanding, with recommendations from the experts in CGM and glucose. Users can adjust the conditional formatting and stats according to specific requirements for their practice. This dashboard helps users to manage glucose levels and track glucose data for all users in their practice via a single platform.
Individual Drill Down
The Individual Drill Down Dashboard allows users to select a specific user in their practice to see changes in their glucose stats over a certain time period in a graphical way. The individual drill-down dashboard displays glucose stats such as average, standard deviation, time and range, and spikes in a tabular format. Users can see how these measurements have changed over time for the selected individual. The report allows users to identify fluctuations and take actions to improve glucose levels for the individual in question.
Cohort Performance Over Time
The Cohort Performance Over Time report displays the same glucose stats as the individual drill-down report but for the entire cohort. Users can see at a glance whether a new protocol or challenge is working for the population as a whole. Users can customize the report by selecting different time periods, granularity, specific users or groups using tags. This new report enables users to assess performance over time and quickly identify changes and fluctuations in the population, and make more informed decisions. Try it out for yourself.
Out of Range
The Glucose Out of Range report allows for health professionals to see who is out of range quickly and easily. Users can customize the report by setting criteria to define what you consider to be out of range glucose values. The report will then display readings where users go above or below the defined thresholds for a certain time period. Users can use this report to identify when users’ readings are out of range and engage in discussions to improve future readings. This report can help users take actions quickly and improve health outcomes.
The Week over Week Improvements dashboard is inspired by one of the health practitioners on the platform who used CGM in her practice, emphasizing the need to provide users with positive feedback to motivate compliance. The Week over Week Improvements dashboard is simple and shows on average for the week versus the previous week. What cohorts change in average glucose, standard deviation, and time and range have occurred. It also shows which users had the biggest metric changes in the positive direction, allowing practitioners to share positive feedback with these users for encouragement. This dashboard motivates users to continue with their actions and to strive for further improvements. Create a complementary account.
This is the Data Export report that is part of the Continuous Glucose Monitoring CGM Reporting Suite in Signals. This report offers a simple solution for users to export raw glucose data for specific users or for all users over a designated time period. The exported data file is in a CSV friendly format that users can further analyze outside of the platform. This report is a straightforward solution for data export, allowing users to analyze and interact with the data outside of the software.
CGM Reporting Suite Conclusion
The CGM Reports inside Signals offer a comprehensive solution for Health Professionals to gain a deeper understanding of their clients’ glucose levels as a cohort and individually. These tools give Health Professionals the power to track client’s glucose levels more effectively and identify areas that could use improvement. Through tracking trends, identifying out-of-range values, understanding cohort performance and having access to easy data exports – Health Professionals are equipped with actionable insights that will motivate their clients towards better glucose levels for improved health.

Peter Bowes is a reporter for the BBC and the host of the podcast LLAMA (Live Long And Master Aging). Through his podcast, he has interviewed both professionals studying human longevity as well as everyday people, including centenarians, to find out what drives them and keeps them living to a ripe old age.
What does your health span have to do with your quality of life? What’s the difference between health span and life span when it comes to human longevity? What is a long life worth if you’re riddled with disease by the time you achieve it? These are the questions Peter asks.
In this podcast, you’ll hear Peter Bowes share with Dave Korsunsky the top 10 longevity lessons he has compiled through his research and podcast interviews so that you, too, can get to live your best and healthiest life — and master aging!

How metrics tracked over time allow you to see trends for longevity [5:11]
Peter discusses ten items that are important to track for longevity [6:25]
Lesson One – Simplicity is Good. What you feel from clutter surrounding you physically to how you organize your life alters how you make other decisions. Chaos in your life can lead you to overeat or distract yourself with other things. (Think twice before clicking buy online: “Do I really need it?”) [7:05]
Lesson Two –Be Precise. Precision in the things that we’re doing such as keeping focus with Intermittent Fasting – ex. do you do it daily, weekly, monthly? [13:00]
Lesson Three – Fasting is Good for Us. (Disclaimer: you should check with your provider to see if it’s right for you right now.) [15:45]
How the different types of fasting affect you and how only through tracking your data can you see which way is best for you right now. [17:13]
Lesson Four – Stop Eating at 6 pm. Peter talks about Satchin Panda’s work regarding the circadian rhythm. [20:00]
How rising with the sun and winding down with the sun setting, and eating your last meal at 6 pm can help you get to sleep and stay asleep better. [21:00]
About how the Oura ring can track when you reach your lowest resting heart rate in the night to help you figure out what is working for you regarding the last meal of the day and more [22:00]
About N=1 Experiments and how they are really beneficial; as you share with your friends who are doing the same things, you’ll start to see patterns that are more universal [23:20]
Lesson Five – Never Stop Having a Project. Keep doing what you love whether you get paid for it or not. (Ex. Megastar Herb Albert is still working well into his early 80’s as a sculptor, artist, painter, and musician.)[24:25]
Lesson Six – Keep Moving Every Day, Every Hour. There is no reason why you can’t do that in any job. Just get up every hour and walk around for a few minutes [27:57]
To get moving, park further away from the place you’re going and take the stairs if you’re able to. Walk around the building before going into it and you’ll get your steps in every day. Take the long way there! [31:45]
How Dave noticed that being in a metropolitan area he got more exercise when everything was within a 6 block radius, versus living somewhere where things were further apart and more driving was required [33:15]
That being active isn’t about weight loss per se, but about the movement that benefits your muscles, cardiovascular system, mood and more. You don’t need a device to achieve that, but tracking it can motivate you to keep consistent [34:00]
Lesson Seven – Moderation is Not Everything. But what does moderation actually mean? “Moderation is that word you use when you don’t want to push yourself to the limit” – Joe De Sena. It doesn’t really mean anything. Do it precisely, not wishy-washy. Go all in! [35:40]
Play the game of life full out. Some days are good, some days aren’t. [37:00]
Lesson Eight –Enduring Discomfort is Good for You. Take a cold shower instead of a hot shower, and you’ll feel great coming out of it. Everything is appreciated more when it’s infrequent [37:45]
The good will feel so much better after you’ve endured some discomfort regularly like a cold shower vs hot or really healthy food vs. a very occasional treat. It will be so much better than if you had access to that treat every day [40:30]
Lesson Nine – Eat Clean, Eat Simply. Choose clean vegetables; homegrown is great! The appreciation of freshly harvested food is so beneficial. Appreciate food and eat simply. You don’t need gourmet food to lead a good life. [41:45]
Lesson Ten– Simplicity is Good. – How you run your life/day/mind and environment (decluttering).
About the reward circuits of hyper-palatable foods of modern culture [44:00]
The number one reason that people want to be able to live to a long age? They want to do it for their children and their grandchildren. Family and connectivity and sharing wisdom is the main reason for wanting to live to an old age with a high quality of life. What’s yours? [46:09]
Extending life is important to share the wisdom that is gained in a life well lived [49:45]

If you’ve been following a low-carb or ketogenic diet for a while, there’s a chance your cholesterol has gone up. And not just your HDL, but also your LDL—the so-called “bad cholesterol” (even though that’s a total misnomer). Maybe your cholesterol has actually gone sky-high, and your doctor not only wants you to start taking medication immediately but she’s also ordered you to quit your “crazy” high-fat diet. Even if you follow some other kind of diet—Paleo, vegetarian, low fat, or no special plan at all—maybe your cholesterol is high, and you’ve been told you need medication, or that you should exercise more.
Your doctor is only looking out for your best interest, but if they’re not up on the latest research, they might not know that your cholesterol level tells you very little about your risk for cardiovascular disease or a heart attack:
There’s “a growing volume of knowledge that challenges the validity of the cholesterol hypothesis and the utility of cholesterol as a surrogate end point.” (DuBroff, 2017)
It’s possible to have low cholesterol but massive heart disease, or to have very high cholesterol but be in great cardiovascular shape.
If you don’t want to start a war with your doctor, but you also don’t want to abandon a way of eating that’s helped you lose weight, have more energy, and maybe even reduce or eliminate diabetes medications, you can experiment with lowering your cholesterol by using the Feldman Protocol, which we featured here at Heads Up Health. But there’s a much better way to evaluate your cardiovascular health than just looking at cholesterol. It’s called the coronary artery calcium test (CAC). We’ll explore it in detail in a bit. First, let’s look a little closer at the problems with using cholesterol as an indicator of heart health.
