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

Members: 220
Latest Activity: 17 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??

Started by onesaint. Last reply by Terry Jun 5. 153 Replies

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

Comment by Terry on Tuesday

Ralph - I'm a big fan of the Abbott Freestyle Libre, the flash glucose monitoring system. I'd love to get the kit but Abbott has placed some significant roadblocks for people like me, in the US, to acquire it.

I see it as a great replacement to fingerstick meters. It does not, however, replace CGM technology since it lacks the critical alarm function.

Comment by Ralph on Monday

Oh wow, further to the comment below re Navigator not being available in USA, I have just seen Abbott's latest! See http://www.freestylelibre.co.uk/ or Google Freestyle Libre. Fantastic / unbelieveable!

Comment by Clare on Monday

We're in the same boat then Terry. My sensor decided to crap out yesterday while I was at the Patriots/Chicago game. Inserted one on my thigh when I got home and didn't get 2 hours sleep last night with false highs and false lows ugh ! I haven't had a single reading so far that was within 30 points of my meter so I have had to check my blood sugar far more often. Changed out my pod this morning and I don't think the new one is absorbing very well. Oh the joys of D.

Comment by Terry on Monday

Thanks, Clare and Ralph. Today I'm dealing with a failed new pump site and 200+ BGs. You just can't take your eyes off of D!

Comment by Ralph on Monday

Sooo flat, a thing of beauty!

Comment by Clare on Monday

it looks really solid to me Terry, nice line

Comment by Terry on Monday

9-hour 40-minute, 34 wide groove

This line included about 5 hours of sleep, started at 2:34 a.m. and ended 12:14 p.m. I woke up around 3:30 a.m. and delivered a 1.2 unit correction bolus.  It was a good correction but didn't seem to bring the line down much. 

This is a little higher than I like, ranging from 111 mg/dl (6.2 mmol/L) to 145 mg/dl (8.1 mmol/L), but I'm not complaining.

Comment by Terry on Sunday

Clare - Your pizza bolus didn't miss by much. Perhaps a little more pre-bolus time or a little more insulin up front for the big carbs. I agree, you had a great BG day, despite the food you ate.

I know you exercise a lot, so maybe your metabolism is more forgiving due to that.

Comment by Terry on Sunday

A good night leads to a good day

I read in one of the artificial pancreas trials that when researchers observed that good control during the night, it tends to lead to good control during the day. Well, this is certainly true for my experience yesterday.

The green strip is 65 mg/dl - 140 mg/dl (3.6-7.8 mmol/L).

My goals:

>= 80% time in range (65-140 mg/dl)

<= 110 mg/dl average (6.1 mmol/L)

<= 5% time less than 65 mg/dl (3.6 mmol/L)

<= 30 standard deviation (SD)

I hit my goals 4/4:

Time in range: 98%

Average: 107 mg/dl

Time low: 2%

SD: 17

I ate a late breakfast at Starbucks at 11:30 a.m. I had a ham and swiss cheese melted sandwich open face, only half the bread. At 5:30 p.m. I had sauteed onions, tomatoes, scrambled eggs with full fat cream and peach mango salsa. I did a Big Blue Test (BBT) 15 minute walk right after breakfast. I walked for 40 minutes about an hour later and went for a 15 minute BBT walk after dinner.

Comment by Clare on Sunday

The pizza bump got to 182 and then headed back down again. I guesstimated 70 grams of carbs between the pizza and the homemade, absolutely incredible tater tots :) and I extended it out 3 hours. Of course since it is the weekend hubby and I decided to go out for dinner which ended up being a big pile of chili nachos. There was another bump from that. Overall considering all the crap I ate I still spent 83% of my time in range with an sd of 30.
