This is part 1 of a conversation between Henrik Berggren founder and CEO of Steady Health, a digital diabetes clinic and Eric Antonow, formerly at Metabolic.

Eric: Henrik, good to see you. There have been a bunch of announcements in the CGM space, and you wrote a Medium post about them. I think they’re a pretty big deal, so let’s go through them one-by-one.

Henrik: Sounds good. Let’s start with Abbott. They’re one of the biggest companies and seemingly on the trajectory to be the most innovative. First, their announcement of the third generation of Freestyle LIBRE or LIBRE…

We’re extending our free trial to help people get access to care

By now, you’re most likely completely overrun with news about COVID-19, how to wash your hands and stay healthy. As California quickly settles into a new reality with restrictions on going outside and non-essential errands we’ve decided to offer our health care services at a heavily discounted price for new members.

Over the last week, we’ve taken a series of steps to better provide help for people struggling with diabetes. For example, we’re offering free consultations with one of our doctors and answering questions from our community via Instagram. …


Recently I did not one but two different podcasts on Steady, how we got started and what our plans are for the future. I thought I’d reshare them here so that you get the chance to learn more about our origin story.

2020 is an amazing year to be alive. Wearable devices like Apple Watches, Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGMs), and Oura Rings are not only widely available, they’re providing us with more data than ever before — helping us better understand how we sleep, eat, and exercise. But, thus far they haven’t gone all the way to working…


We are close to the end of 2019 and I’m wrapping up my first full year working knee-deep in US healthcare. In July, we opened the doors to Steady Health, a modern clinic tackling one of the most important health crises of our time, diabetes.

This past year has been challenging, rewarding, frustrating, eye-opening and exciting. Just like with any startup in the early days, the highs have been high and the lows have been low.
