Last week, I got a new update of software for my Stages power meter. The Stages is a device that is milled into the left crank arm (what the pedal is screwed into) of my bike. This device measures the power (as wattage) that I create when I am on my road bike. I know that you are wondering why a non-professional rider would need such a high-tech device. The reason is that I want to maximize what I can accomplish and learn how best to use the ability I have.
This idea is also the reason that more and more patients who have diabetes are using CGM devices. We all know they are perfect for patients who have type 1 diabetes and those with more complex treatment strategies, such as those who require multiple injections, but now we are seeing a lot more patients overall maximizing their own care with CGM.
