FLATLINERS CLUB

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

Members: 219
Latest Activity: 5 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.

Rocky Mountains (low valleys and HIGH peaks)

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

Rollercoasters

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

Rolling right along, little spike after I lifted this AM seems to have topped out about 109. I usually don't work out in the AM but have been working 9-5:30 instead of 8-4:30 and figured I'd give it a shot today and I feel great! 3 cups of coffee= +10 lbs!

The stars aligned and all of the devices agreed! Very nicely done, Minx!

Holy dexcom batman! Or... minimed, or free style..?
In any case, that's amazing, I agree is should be published as a work of art!

Comment by acidrock23 on March 5, 2012 at 7:48pm

Nice trifecta!

Comment by Natalie ._c- on March 5, 2012 at 6:43pm

On the other hand, Minx, maybe that could be published as a work of art? :-)

Comment by MM on March 5, 2012 at 5:43pm

wish I could say it was like this all the time..

Comment by MM on March 4, 2012 at 8:37am

Today I started a new Dex and MM Sensor. Will post results later this week, in the CGM group.

Comment by onesaint on February 24, 2012 at 10:39am

Agreed on all counts. Thanks again for post all this Minx. It's a great comparison.

Comment by MM on February 24, 2012 at 10:18am

OS - I usually calibrate Dex 3-4 on first day, and 1-2 per day after that. I like that Dex continues to 'work' even if you don't calibrate when it wants one. Not so with MM, so that's why I do MM 3/day, and avoid it demanding a calibration at an inconvenient or unstable time. For Dex, I calibrate when it is off by 20%, or quickly rising/falling when I know BG is actually stable. When I started using MM (2007), it was very inaccurate, but was also before I had learned to 'flatline'. I think MM does ok if you can stay stable most of the time ! And when I'm less 'flat', I find Dex is more off too.
