On a mission to make nutrition treatment the norm, not the last resort, Carlee Hayes, RDN, joined Nutrisense, a metabolic health company that utilizes Continuous Glucose Monitoring (GCM) technology to provide real-time data to clients.

Hayes said it all started with her great grandmother, who lived to see 101 years.

“It's been a wonderful journey and it all started when I was really, really young. So my Grammy, as I called her, which was my great-grandmother, was my idol. She was the best woman I know. She survived the depression, she was such an amazing woman and she was a dietitian before there was even really a field of dietetics.”

Following in her grammy’s footsteps, Hayes also pursued dietetics–with a modern twist.

“When we first started, continuous glucose monitoring technology or CGMs were really niche. They weren't really known in the broader public. This was back in 2019. So I think part of our battle or part of our goal was getting those to be more commonplace and just kind of a household name for things outside of just traditional diabetes management. And that's how they were traditionally used. We're kind of flipping the script and using those for anyone because we think that anyone that has this data can make a meaningful impact on their health or lifespan. And I still believe that to this day, this is the best way to do that,” said Hayes.

Looking ahead, Hayes hopes that one day insurance companies will cover CGMs for everyone who wants to take a proactive approach to health.

“If we can get CGMs covered for everyone and show that it can make a difference early on even without diabetes, that's ultimately the goal. So I hope that happens.”
