Members: 230
Latest Activity: 22 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.

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

Afrezza, eh? Well played. (clap, clap, clap)

Comment by Terry on March 19, 2015 at 8:21pm

Day 3 Afrezza

I ate at 12:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. I took 4 units of Afrezza for each meal at mealtime. I supplemented each meal dose with an extended protein/fat bolus.

Green stripe = 65 - 140 mg/dl

Time in range = 90% 

Time low = 10% Nothing lower than 61

Standard Deviation = 21

Average = 90

Best day this week. And I was on the road and eating catered/restaurant conference food.

Time to celebrate Terry even if it is short term ...congrats !!

14-day weave

The last fortnight was pretty good BG-wise. TIR, time in range, was 86% with 7% low. With and average of 88, a median of 83, and a SD of 20, things sailed smoothly. Had a couple of morning high rollers but nothing too long.

No-hitter!

Saturday, 2/21

It doesn't happen often enough but yesterday I was able to stay 100% of my time in my self-imposed range of 65-140 mg/dl. It got a little squirrelly towards the end of the day and I went out for a brisk walk at 8:30 p.m. to head off a line headed north and sure to cross the upper limit if I didn't quickly burn some sugar. Mission accomplished!

I met my daily goals 4/4 with a SD of 17 and an average of 106 mg/dl.

Comment by Terry on February 16, 2015 at 5:42pm

Yeah, AR, I think the first few iterations of the AP will persuade me to stay on the sidelines. "Medically sensible goals," I fear, will fall well short of its longer-term promise. An AP that delivers anything less than 80% time in range, 65-140 mg/dl, would be hard to adopt. I might let it take me through the night and then still drive in manual through the day until the AP gets its chops down. The "we are not waiting" grassroots movement will hold the manufacturers and the regulators feet to fire. They will be an irritating yet productive stimulus to move things forward for us.

Comment by acidrock23 on February 16, 2015 at 4:22am

It remains to be seen just how well the AP is set to do Terry! I suspect it will be set to a medically sensible goal, given the involvement of doctors in the design process! I think that might be a mistake however it still seems a bit too soon to know for sure!

Many ways to screw up

Saturday, 2/14

So, two days ago I adjusted my basal rate at midnight to counteract the post midnight dip in the BG line shown below. Instead of decreasing the basal rate by 0.1 unit/hour, I mistakenly increased it by 0.1 unit/hour.  Not an overly serious error and the consequences were small but it was an unforced mistake.

It just goes to show that there are many ways to screw up blood sugar control and a lesson in humility. Cognitive mistakes like this, with more serious consequences, is one of the things I fear as I age. I look forward to an artificial pancreas system that can play this game better than I!
