Carlee Hayes Notable Quotes

“We’re just really underutilizing this vital sign. So, glucose, as you know, is sort of a direct window into our metabolism and our metabolic health, and it gives us insight to, sure, our food and how we’re responding, but also our overall health, our metabolic health, how our sleep is doing, how we’re handling stress, if our exercise is sufficient for our needs. ”
Carlee Hayes
