FLATLINERS CLUB

Information

FLATLINERS CLUB

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

Members: 219
Latest Activity: yesterday

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

Started by FHS. Last reply by Terry May 28. 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??

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

Well, I've finally rejoined the club after months of tough sledding. Seeing as how it's summer, it's about TIME I stopped sledding, eh?

ah ha, we are back in business. I had the *craziest* flat week I've *ever* had, 4 days of this, M-Th PM, when I blew it by eating two tacos before I remembered to bolus, peaked at 137 on the CGM (so perhaps higher) but walked the dog to beat it back down. Perhaps bizarrely I started T25 and, for fun, drinking the Shakeology stuff, 13G of carbs plus all sorts of exotic superfoods. And ate fairly cleanly, not low carb though, I laid off the brewskis and dropped some weight too.

I never took Lantus/Levemir as I went from NPH to a pump. I've run into some people doing 3 however I can't recall off the top of my head who they were. The approach seems to make sense to me for sure.

I had a smokin' line yesterday but can't seem to post pics these days, mozilla has crashed out on me and my IE seems to be dated or somehow incompatible. Argh. Perhaps I'll do an uninstall/ reinstall on Moz to see if I can get it going...

For those doing MDI, what shot combination are you using to cover basal? I am fairly new to injecting, will get my Dexcom soon, and have been taking 2 shots of Levemir a day. Looking at some of the insulin curves, I'm thinking that the ideal number might be 3 to get a pretty flat line on basal insulin effectiveness.

Thanks acid ...I am very grateful to our warm temperatures , hardly any exercise ...which seems to give me flatline( s)...till things change , ha, ha .Presently at day 2,13 hours of the " old model " SofSensor . I need to do some more " research " on the new model Enlite sensors . I thought I knew how to do the procedure and screwed up 2 out of a box of 5 ..2 x CAN $ 66.00 into the garbage .I was too shakey .Hubby promised to assist . Medtronic suggested to view youtube , which appears to be similar to DVD ?
See your flat line result shortly :) PS the iPhone pic shrank the pump :)

Comment by acidrock23 on July 5, 2013 at 9:54am

wow Nel, that's a spectacular line!! Great job keeping it right on the money!! Today was new sensor day so I don't have one that's any use. Maybe tomorrow I'll see what I can do!

Comment by nel on July 5, 2013 at 9:46am

I even had forgotten how to post and where ( choose here :)...it's that long ago

Comment by Natalie ._c- on April 28, 2013 at 9:13pm

Kate, at least I hope you're treating them with something that you really enjoy -- once the insulin resistance hits, at least you'll have some fond memories, LOL!

Comment by Kate on April 28, 2013 at 5:13pm

So this is my day. I keep reminding myself that I'm "enjoying" the low bg's of the first half of pregnancy and in a few weeks I'll hit insulin resistance. But, I've been low most of the day and it sucks.

Comment by acidrock23 on April 28, 2013 at 8:01am

I think too that the companies working with insurers face a yearly "they don't need these supplies" blacklisting type of thing from many, if not all, insurers. You order supplies, they say their "not covered" and then the doctor has to do some BS paperwork to get the same thing covered again, at the crawling speed of doctor/ insurance communications. It is really something that annoys the hell out of me and it happens every year. I think this may be a useful thing to work to develop a class action suit about. It's not a lot of "damages" per se but it is very collusive and questionable from an ethical standpoint, given that, at least so far, the insurers generally eventually give up the supplies.
