FLATLINERS CLUB

Information

FLATLINERS CLUB

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

Members: 213
Latest Activity: on Thursday

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.

The below 24 hr trend is from Nate, a 15 year old type 1 Diabetic... with a little help from his mom Emily, they are achieving some of the most inspiring trends to date. A 15 year old producing 24 hr Flatlines??? wow! Need I say more?"WOW, a little…Continue

Rocky Mountains (low valleys and HIGH peaks)

Started by Danny. Last reply by Terry May 18. 652 Replies

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??

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

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 :)

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?).

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!

Oh , my quite a story ac !!!...My last A1C went up to 7.3 ...I finally am less stressing , when I get a number like that and do some self talk : no complications , no BP meds required, 72 years of age ; thyroid meds were changed after this result ...a bit stronger ...next A1C result will be lower ...end of self talk :)

Yeah, YOU aren't bad Natalie, it comes with the territory. I had a wild evening last night as the BBQ first cought on fire, so I tossed dinner in the oven, the fire went out and then I tried BBQ again, but the tank drained so back in the oven. MrsAR raised eyebrows at chicken which, with cajun seasoning, so it was "blackened" although it turned out ok. I figured the rice @ 55G of carbs and *thought* I bolused but didn't and, when my BG started to take off, I decided to walk the dog *before* I looked to see about the bolus so then I uh, aggressively cut the spike off and then had IOB at bedtime, lots of "turbulence" capped off with a nice slice of DP at 3:00 AM, when I woke up and started firing corrections at it. Oh well, living with diabetes is better than the alternative!

Diabetes Sucks Natalie ...

Comment by Natalie ._c- on February 28, 2013 at 6:10pm

OK, I'm going to post a line, because I haven't been here in a million years, and it will prove to you how BAD I am. But I did it in my sleep, so it's not my fault! And behold my usual bad quality photo -- even on a cell phone, I can't take a decent picture!

Comment by acidrock23 on February 24, 2013 at 5:08pm

It's been a while and I saw some new people pop up and had a nice, flat day today, working hard to drop 5 lbs I picked up somewhere recently. Turning basals down across the board seems to be helping!
