How to control blood sugar spikes


Biochemist Jessie Inchauspe heads into work one morning at a genetics lab in California. During the morning meeting, management offer staff the chance to self-test a new medical device. Jessie accepts. 

She couldn’t have known this device would take her on a journey of discovery to reshape her health and help countless others do the same.  

The device was a continuous blood sugar monitor, and it was this, combined with her academic background, and a remarkable willingness to use herself as a lab rat, that began a journey of discovery into how blood sugar affects our health. 

In today’s episode, Jonathan is joined by two leading experts on the topic:
