FLATLINERS CLUB

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

Members: 219
Latest Activity: 10 minutes 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

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

I couldn't get it to work on my mobile, perhaps something with the Ning app. I had to message the pic from my phone to my computer and save it to upload it.

Well, if we want to reopen the store, I'll toss one out. Not legendarily flat but it was a very busy day yesterday, woke up high. As if often the case, the correction went into a bonkers nosedive, right as I was heading out to go running at 8:00 AM, even though I'd cut the bolus in like 1/2. Oh well, I ran around the house, tossed in some carbs and ran, cut basal to 7%, noticed it heading up, killed that and went back to 100%, maybe hit a whiff of correction and had some gatorade to get finish up at 104 reading on both CGM and meter, which was a pleasant touch.

Then had post run spike up, corrected and took shower and went down again. Ate, perhaps too much, trying to catch it unsuccessfully with food and then some quick acting (before, of course, the food hit...) took a break to download some Phish albums as one of my running buddies is into them and I'm looking for something to go with Terry Pratchett and possible invite to show in July, then and then off to the store, to get some ribs and lay in provisions for the week. Then home, dry rub the ribs and let 'em sit, more errands, I noticed that perhaps running low on jelly beans was pushing me to avoid using the dwindled stash so I picked up some more and junior's fried laptop from Geek Squad. Then home "oh no, I forgot I'd run out of gas on the grill..." so back out, gassed up, had 1/2 hour to let the ribs sit and had a margarita. Cooked, ate and then out to clubs as my friend's band was playing. Whew, very busy day, not the flattest line ever but not totally bonkers. 20.6 StdDev, 83% within limits of 70-130 on the CGM. All this while trying to break in a new meter. BCBS and/ or Bayer got to the doc and were like "you know, it's way cheaper..." and I figured I'd try it and ther results are ok but the auto firing meter----> pump has thrown my rhythm off a bit. Oh well, all in a day's life...

Yeah, it's been quiet. And my lines are NOWHERE near as nice as yours. I've been in a rough spell for a while, and I admit I haven't been helping it along, either. And my secondary (I'm now on Medicare, DAMMIT!) just refused to pay for my sensors, for reasons unknown, since they paid for them before I went on Medicare, so at the moment, I don't even know whether I'll keep being able to monitor at all. In which case, I'll be in deep doo-doo. :-(

Nice line Danny! It is quiet in here isn't it.

My BGs are a tad messy ATM, but I hope everyone else is doing well.

Thank you acidrock23.. Glad to see you're still around!
Comment by acidrock23 on April 25, 2014 at 4:49am

LOL, it's pretty slow around here these days. We had a period a few years ago where it was more active. Nice line though!!

Comment by _Danny_ on April 23, 2014 at 10:28am

Hi... (ghost town?) tumble weed rolls by....

This is a typical day for me. A semi low/medium carb diet combined with lite daily exercise. Nothing flashy or over the top, just good ol' fashioned MODERATION.

High Alert 180mg/dl low 90mg/dl
