FLATLINERS CLUB

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

Members: 215
Latest Activity: 19 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.

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

Where've you been hanging out w/ D-Downers Kate? I have been in sort of low posting gear lately but I'm attributing it to the repeated extensions of winter. Yuck.

Interesting reviews of TSlim too. I put new sensor in so my line this AM is running out of gas.

Comment by Natalie ._c- on March 26, 2013 at 9:35pm

Well, the reason I switched to the Dexcom was that the Medtronic was just too inaccurate for me, especially in the low ranges. I really haven't had that problem with the Dex. And since I'm not on the Med. CGM, there was no reason to stay with the Med. pump -- the people at Tandem say they have an agreement to integrate with the Dex, but they won't say when. Integration with pump and CGM IS nice, and the Med. gives a lot of good information, but if it's not accurate, it doesn't mean anything.

Nel, if you want to see a t:slim, go to http://www.tandemdiabetes.com/
They're all the same -- no fancy colors or skins. They look more like a touch-screen phone than anything else! And if you're clumsy, like me, you have to cultivate the art of how to touch it. But I'm just getting in practice for when I finally get a smart phone! :-)

Love to see a picture of your t:slim , Natalie !!!!
For the Canadian pumpers Enlite is now available http://www.medtronicdiabetes.ca/en/enlite/Get-Started/index.html

Comment by Kate on March 26, 2013 at 4:31pm

Look at you, Natalie! You jump from all MM to the Dexcom and then the tslim? Mighty trendy, my friend :) How do you like the new pump? If I were going back to tubed (which I don't know that I could...), the tslim would be my choice. It's soooo purty!

Side note, I got to hold the new, smaller pods today and I just can't wait for them :)

Comment by Natalie ._c- on March 26, 2013 at 1:19pm

Hi, Kate! BG's were anything but flat and target last week -- turned out to be a kinked set. Replaced it, and no improvement, and turned out to be ANOTHER kinked set. Bleh! But I called Edgepark, and they are sending me QuickSets with luer locks for my new t:slim, and I know Quicksets work just fine for me. So maybe next week will be flat and in target! :-)

Comment by Kate on March 26, 2013 at 12:15pm

Hey gang! I feel like I've been hanging out with D-downers lately and needed to check in with the positive group. I want to tell you all how much I appreciate your perspective and encouragement. Happy Tuesday to all! May your bg's be flat and in target :)

Comment by Kate on March 6, 2013 at 10:39am

haha! I ended up around 200, but came down nicely to an even 80/90 all night long. Woke up to an 83. Can't beat that (I mean, unless I could get rid of the initial low and corresponding spike from overeating, but who's counting?).

Comment by acidrock23 on March 5, 2013 at 8:22pm

Quick, take a picture of it before it goes up!! Oh wait, I might be too late!! LOL!!

Comment by Kate on March 5, 2013 at 5:31pm

Hey kids - thanks for sharing! Natalie - I had to remind my self just the other day that I am not my bg :) Hope you are well. AR - thanks for posting. Sometimes it's good to know that even you have an achilles' heel. My camera is MIA (I swear that 1 year old hides it for fun!), but my cgm has said "LOW" for about an hour and a half and after the 2nd brownie and 3rd donut it finally looks like 84 and slightly increasing. I hope this doesn't haunt me at 1:30 am!
