A club to share your successful and not so successful trends (graphs) from your CGM or Glucose Meters....

Members: 230
Latest Activity: 13 hours ago

The most elite Diabetes club on the net ;)

Below you will find FIVE different discussions to chose from to post your trends (Please do not post them on the main page)....


1. Flatline 12-24 hours (trends that you are proud to share).


2. Flatline 1-11 hours (trends that you are proud to share)


3. Rocky Mountains (low and high blood sugar peaks).- Days where we have very low blood sugars and the highest of high blood sugar peaks.


4. Rollercoaster- "lines that aren't flatlines, but aren't exactly Himalayas/Rocky mountains either" this is the in between area


5. What in the World? This is the area for those things that just are'nt right with your CgM trends.


Post your trends, don't be bashful. There's not many things better in a diabetics life than discussing glucose trends (good or bad) with other diabetics. Remember, the bottom line is this group is for support, not in anyway a competition.

The below 24 hr trend is from Nate, a 15 year old type 1 Diabetic... with a little help from his mom Emily, they are achieving some of the most inspiring trends to date. A 15 year old producing 24 hr Flatlines??? wow! Need I say more?"WOW, a little…Continue

70-140 Range 11/14/2010 I had friends and family over and went a little crazy. I'm human! Does it look more like the Himalayas or Rocky Mountains? Hmm..  Post your not so flatline (low and high peaks) like photo's within this discussion. I…Continue

So, there has to be a category for lines that aren't flatlines, but aren't exactly Himalayas either. I thought, maybe, Appalachians, but I'm not sure if I'm even spelling the word correctly. How about just, 'Rollecoasters". Here's my attempt to…Continue

What in the world??

This is the area for those things that just are'nt right. For instance from yesterday to today my Dexcom sensor has been off. If I fingerstick 100 the Dex says 180, if Im 150 the Dex says 260! So, the PG expression is "what in the world?" Normally,…Continue

Yes, yes. Thinking you have most of the variables the same as the last time you ate "that whatever" and this time the trend goes the other way! Nathan had his idea of an awesome Super Bowl, he got to eat all day long, some of it not bolused for, it was strange trying to keep his BS up for hours on end. Had turned up his basal b/c of school, but it is too much for the weekend, going to have to go back to making a separate program for the weekend.

"bottom line is I can't figure out why it changes so much on certain days." I think we all know this one way too well. If only we had insight into the biological reactions that make up these crazy days. control what you can, mutter in discontent at the rest. =^)

rick,don't forget to factor in the gremlins!

Comment by rickselvik on February 5, 2012 at 9:12am

My days are more like Natalies, but I do have some flat line days as well, so naturally I try to figure why. I've attributed it to the humalog to novalog switch; eating well and pigging out, exercising more and napping too much, the Packers winning the superbowl and the loss to the Giants this year in the playoffs, stress filled days and sunny days; bottom line is I can't figure out why it changes so much on certain days. I am glad to have this blog to hear others experience the same thing, versus CDEs or non diabetics saying just do xyz and you will have a flat line all the time....

Funny about the CDE, well after he peaked, he crashed. Put the pic in 1-11 hour flatline...you'll see why...

Comment by Natalie ._c- on February 5, 2012 at 5:59am

Emily, my CDE tried on a CGM for a few days, just to see what it felt like to wear one, and was MOST disappointed that she never got any arrows of any kind. All I can say is "Poor baby!!" LOL!!

Comment by acidrock23 on February 5, 2012 at 5:46am

I'm sorry for the outbreak of uparrows that people are having. I cheated and ran 9 miles and didn't eat much as my weight had oozed up a couple of lbs. Afternoon after that was too busy to really eat so I turned my pump down to 33% for an hour trip to the grocery. We had Mexican for dinner, we'd gone to the same place last weekend and I had enchiladas and grossly underestimated the carbs thinking "cheese should be ok?" so I had tacos last night which were 1) extremely tasty and 2) kept BG flat. No margarita though, just a couple of beers. And then onto the couch.

Comment by Emily B on February 4, 2012 at 11:02pm

Natalie, you and Nate have matching double up arrows, at 213 for him. Had baby oil on his pod for a change then he showered right after dinner, didn't change pod for +2 hours and we think cannula had dislodged. He had no basal and or dinner's extended bolus then. I'll check on CB during the night.

Comment by jrtpup on February 4, 2012 at 10:00pm

Oy, definitely a soap opera. Not a fun day, hope tomorrow is better! I think I'm glad your body woke up LOL

Comment by Natalie ._c- on February 4, 2012 at 9:28pm

Just so all parts of the spectrum are properly displayed: After 2 days, my body woke up and decided maybe something really HAD happened, and it was supposed to do something about it. Low was 108, quite acceptable, but high was 357 -- then it started coming down fast to 146, and then turned right up again and started going right up again to 321. And I haven't eaten anything since 1PM and it's 9PM now! :-)Did I ever tell you I have diabetes?????
