Using heart rate and continuous glucose monitors, our Sugar Challenge Study associated the glycemic responses of 1,022 people on the diabetes spectrum with the glycemic load of the foods they ate. The findings led to January’s proprietary algorithms that accurately predict glucose response for 33 hours in participants with type 2 diabetes. Over 70% of all participants improved their time-in-range (TIR)—the amount of time their blood glucose remained within a healthy zone—including 58% of individuals with the highest blood glucose levels, with a median of 13%.
Meet Michael Snyder
Dr. Snyder received his Ph.D. training at the California Institute of Technology and carried out postdoctoral training at Stanford University. He is a leader in the field of functional genomics and proteomics, and one of the major participants of the ENCODE project. Snyder Lab was the first to perform a large-scale functional genomics project in any organism, and has developed many technologies in genomics and proteomics. These include the development of proteome chips, high resolution tiling arrays for the entire human genome, methods for global mapping of transcription factor binding sites (ChIP-chip now replaced by ChIP-seq), paired end sequencing for mapping of structural variation in eukaryotes, de novo genome sequencing of genomes using high throughput technologies and RNA-Seq. These technologies have been used for characterizing genomes, proteomes and regulatory networks.
Seminal findings from the Snyder laboratory include the discovery that much more of the human genome is transcribed and contains regulatory information than was previously appreciated, and a high diversity of transcription factor binding occurs both between and within species.
