Questions with a screenshot of the daily curve or other concrete results that we can discuss will be prioritized. State your gender and age, as well as the circumstances surrounding the measurements/theme, and anything else relevant in connection with your question.

This blog has become very popular, interesting questions are flowing in on a continuous basis! Unfortunately, it is impossible to answer more than a small selection of them. You are therefore encouraged to post the question in the Pulskuren main arena as well, or another relevant group.
