Get ready to get nerdy on today's episode. For today's show, we're talking with Dr. Casey Means from Levels Health.

Proper blood sugar control isn't just for diabetics and pre-diabetics, it's for anyone trying to live a longer, healthier, happier life; anyone looking to perform better, and anyone looking to maintain a healthier body composition.
