Lingo Counts reflect your glucose exposure and are calculated based on spikes. Fewer and smaller spikes = fewer Lingo Counts. More frequent and larger spikes = more Lingo Counts.Your goal is to have fewer spikes and smaller spikes to stay within your Lingo Count target. So, aim for fewer Lingo Counts. Lingo is like golf, a lower score is better. Also like golf, the goal is not a score of zero. Some glucose spikes every day are perfectly normal.
