How The Nutrisense Program Works

Do I Need a Medical Prescription to Join Nutrisense?

Nutrisense takes care of CGM prescriptions for members, which means you don't need a prescription before signing up.

For most of the members we serve, obtaining a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) requires a medical prescription. Our team understands the challenges associated with obtaining a prescription, and we're happy to facilitate this process for you.

How Does Sign Up Work?

Sign-up takes less than 5 minutes and includes a comprehensive health questionnaire.

After you complete your questionnaire, it takes 1-2 business days for our third-party physician’s network to review your information and approve your eligibility for the Nutrisense program.

Once approved, your order will ship out the next business day. Shipping takes approximately 5-10 business days.

What is Included in my Monthly Subscription?

All of our monthly CGM subscriptions include two 14-day CGM sensors, access to our app, and one optional month of free nutritionist service to help you interpret your data.

You can start using the app while your order is on its way. If you do not receive a welcome email in your inbox, please check your junk or spam folder. During this time, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the app by logging meals, activities (i.e. exercise), and notes.

How Do I Get Started with my CGM?

The 14-days of monitoring start once you apply and activate your sensor. You can start scanning one hour after activating your sensor. Once your first sensor is activated, we will pair you with a nutritionist who will serve as a great resource to answer dietary and lifestyle questions.

You will be matched with your nutritionist within 24 hours of activation on weekdays, or on Monday if you activate over the weekend.  Your nutritionist will reach out to you through our in-app chat that you can access via "Message" in the in-app menu.

You can activate your sensors whenever you want. Your CGM subscription is tied to the shipment of the CGMs, not the use of them. This gives you the flexibility to customize your tracking time to match your schedule.

Each sensor lasts 14 days and your data monitoring starts at the time you apply and activate the new sensor. You'll never lose any of the tracking time you paid for because each sensor's 14-day life doesn’t start until you activate it. The Nutrisense app also tracks how many days of life your sensor has and will notify you when it expires.

Can You Shower with Nutrisense?

Nutrisense CGMs are water-resistant up to 8 feet deep. You can shower or swim with your CGM, though wearing your protective bandage is recommended to prevent any damage to the device.

How Long Do You Wear Nutrisense?

Nutrisense CGMs provided by FreeStyle Libre can be worn for up to 14 days. Once the device expires, you will receive a notification in the Nutrisense app to remove and dispose of your CGM.

Does Nutrisense Help With Weight Loss?

The Nutrisense program is designed to help you reach your wellness goals, including weight loss. Real-time insights from the CGM can help you pinpoint dietary and lifestyle changes to make, and you’ll also be paired with a qualified nutritionist who will help you turn your glucose data into an actionable plan for reaching your goals.

Does Nutrisense Have Needles?

The Freestyle Libre CGMs provided by Nutrisense uses a small non-invasive needle as part of the application process. Once in your arm, the CGM painlessly measures your blood sugar via interstitial fluid using a filament that is attached to the device.

How Do You Sleep with a CGM?

The Freestyle Libre CGMs provided by Nutrisense uses a small non-invasive needle as part of the application process. Once in your arm, the CGM painlessly measures your blood sugar via interstitial fluid using a filament that is attached to the device.

Can You Sleep On Your Side with a CGM?

We advise that you avoid sleeping on the side that you’re wearing the CGM on, as lying directly on top of the device during sleep may lead to inaccurate blood sugar readings during the night.

How Often Do You Need to Scan Nutrisense

The Freestyle Libre CGM provided by the Nutrisense program will need to be scanned at least once every 8 hours to avoid losing any data. You can scan your CGM using the Nutrisense app to collect and view your glucose data in real-time.

Does Nutrisense Sync with Apple Health?

The Nutrisense app syncs with Apple Health Kit, and wearables such as the Apple watch, Samsung watch, Oura ring, Fitbit, and Garmin.

Joining Nutrisense

Who Can Join the Nutrisense CGM Program?

CGM Program Eligibility: It is our aim to offer expert guidance and help as many individuals as possible reach their health potential.

With time, we hope to create new solutions for anyone coming to Nutrisense, however as of right now, we are unable to work with individuals who are:

  • Currently undergoing cancer treatment
  • Currently undergoing insulin therapy
  • Diagnosed with an active eating disorder
  • Pregnant or wish to become pregnant in the next few months
  • Undergoing fertility treatments
  • Under the age of 18
  • Unable to provide a shipping address within the United States
  • Not in possession of a smartphone with NFC or Bluetooth capabilities

Can I Join the Program if I am Using Insulin?

We are currently not accepting individuals using insulin to the Nutrisense program. Given the physiologic differences between glucose concentrations within the interstitial fluid (which the CGM measures) and capillary blood (as measured by finger-stick glucometer readings), there may be significant differences in glucose readings.

These observed differences are more pronounced during times of rapid change in blood glucose, such as after eating, exercising, and dosing insulin. Additionally, the current CGM system utilized at Nutrisense does not provide alerts or alarms for both hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic glucose events.

The Nutrisense system is not designed to replace glucose testing for diabetes treatment decisions at this time, however, we would highly encourage you to request a prescription for a CGM from your primary care provider, as well as a referral to a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist (CDCES) within your area. Professional support will continue to expand your personal toolbox to care for your diabetes!

Can I Join the Program if I am Pregnant?

While we would love to support everyone on their health journey, unfortunately, we are not currently accepting pregnant women into the Nutrisense program.

We understand that pregnancy can bring unique challenges and changes to glucose responses that can make it difficult to get an accurate picture of your baseline health.

However, we would be thrilled to have you join our program once you have given birth and are ready to focus on your postpartum health goals. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to reach out to our team if you have any questions or concerns about monitoring your glucose levels during pregnancy.

Do I Need to Have a Smartphone to Use the CGM?

Yes, in order to participate in the Nutrisense program you will need an NFC and Bluetooth compatible smartphone. Luckily, most smartphones sold after 2016 have NFC technology and bluetooth connectivity embedded in them, which is needed for the CGM to work.

So, if you bought your smartphone in 2016 or after, then you should not have any issues. If you have any questions about your device, our support team is always here to help confirm the NFC or Bluetooth status. Otherwise, we recommend checking with your personal device carrier.

As a general rule of thumb, if you have an iPhone 7 or newer, a Samsung Galaxy S6 or newer, a Google Pixel 1 or newer, your phone will work just fine.

Unfortunately, neither the iPhone 6 nor the iPhone SE (older generation) is NFC compatible. If you want to check if your device is NFC compatible, please view the list here. Unfortunately, we are unable to use iPads or Apple Watches to collect the CGM data. However, you can view your data on your iPad app.

How Much Does It Cost to Join Nutrisense?

Nutrisense plans start at $225 per month. Prices may vary depending on the length of your plan. All Nutrisense plans come with complimentary nutritionist support for the first 30-days of your subscription.

Is Nutrisense CGM Worth It?

The Nutrisense CGM program provides you with real-time data from a CGM, a handy mobile app to track and record your data, and in-app support from a team of expert nutritionists. This combination of data and human support gives you unique insights into your blood sugar levels, so you can see how your body responds to various food and lifestyle factors, and create healthier, more sustainable lifestyle habits.

Do You Need a Prescription for Nutrisense CGM?

CGMs are only available through a medical prescription in the United States. When you join the Nutrisense program, we take care of the prescription for you. Sign up to one of our plans and fill out our health questionnaire to get started.

Which CGM is the Cheapest?

The cost of a CGM can vary depending on the model and manufacturer. The CGMs provided by the Nutrisense program start at $225 per month and include two 14-day FreeStyle Libre CGMs for the duration of your program.

What is the Monthly Cost of Nutrisense?

Nutrisense offers a range of monthly plans that vary in length and price. Our 12-month program starts at $225 per month, and our no-commitment one month program starts at $399 per month. All Nutrisense plans include one month of complimentary nutritionist support.

Can I Get a CGM with Insurance?

Some CGMs are covered by private insurance in the United States when prescribed by a doctor. At this time, CGMs from the Nutrisense program are not covered by insurance providers. However, Nutrisense programs are often eligible for HSA /FSA reimbursement. Check with your HSA/FSA provider for more information.

Who is Eligible for a Free CGM?

There are currently no companies in the United States that provide free CGMs. The cost of a continuous glucose monitor can vary depending on your program and length of commitment to a CGM program.

Can I Cancel my Nutrisense Subscription?

When you sign up to Nutrisense, you agree to be charged monthly for the duration of the program you selected. All members have the ability to snooze their program at any time if they need to take a break for any reason. 

If you need to cancel your program before the termination date, you’ll be required to pay an early cancellation fee. Contact our customer support team for assistance if you would like to pause or cancel your program.

Which is Better, Nutrisense or Signos?

The Nutrisense program is designed to help anyone reach their health potential. While other programs such as Signos hone in on one specific problem area, when you join the Nutrisense program, your experience is tailored specifically to you and your unique health goals. Unlike Signos, Nutrisense also pairs you with a credentialed and certified nutritionist who will serve as your personal health coach and motivator through the process.

What is Similar to Nutrisense?

While there are several programs on the market designed to optimize metabolic health, Nutrisense is the only program that pairs each member with personal nutritionist support from a credentialed health professional to help you create positive lifestyle changes, understand your body’s data, and take control of your own health.
