Information

FLATLINERS CLUB

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

Members: 226
Latest Activity: Jan 8

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.

Rollercoasters

Started by FHS. Last reply by Terry May 28, 2014. 490 Replies

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

I went back to misc.health.diabetes archives and found a message from 1994 which gives a timeline of my diabetes development. Actually pretty close to what I remember:
April 1983 - developed edema and hypertension
Fall 1990 - symptom of being hungry all the time -- normal OGTT
May 1991 - Fasting BG 138 on physical
Oct 1991 - Fasting BG 131 - bought meter. Normal BGs on meter.
Aug 1992 - Suddenly elevated BGs throughout the day
Aug 19, 1992 - Coronary artery spasm. BGs fall to normal during hospital
stay. Diagnosis of NIDDM
Sept 1993 BGs become elevated.
Dec 1993 - diet not having worked, referred to endo who placed me on oral
meds.
May 1994 - oral meds not working - started insulin
Sept 1994 - went to 3 shots -- works like a charm!

So Danny didn't have to put anything up on the main page, Jen did it for us! I'm fascinated by the responses, and the way some people are open minded and some think we're robots. And I'm ultra-impressed by you guys' responses! Keep up the good work! Or as Gerri just told me, it's rough to say the emperor has no clothes! :-)

In my fortune cookie last night, the fortune was: "If you don't finish your work, blame the computer" !!!!!!! How right on can a fortune be? :-)

To Helmut : I even take more than my hat off :) ...I will raise our flag as well !
Comment by Kim S. (onesaint) on April 29, 2011 at 5:37pm
Hats off to Helmut. One of our own flatliners pulling off a A1C thats considered impossible!

Awesome Danny! Thanks for sharing the note.
Comment by Brian (bsc) on April 29, 2011 at 3:42pm
I just want to give a shout out for Helmut who just reported an A1c of 4.6%. It is one thing to show a flatline of 12-24 hours, it is quite another to establish a pattern over three months.

Way to go Helmut!

Ill post it as a question to show our support / invite him to have a look for his next teleseminar. Pretty awesome that were being sought out on the web though.
