FLATLINERS CLUB

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

Members: 217
Latest Activity: on Tuesday

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 knew you guys would get it here. The ups, the downs, the good, the bad. This group knows how to take it all and make (sugar-free) lemonade :)

Comment by Natalie ._c- on March 27, 2013 at 5:29pm

Kate, I understand about the people who let their emotions overrule the courtesies of civil discourse. Parents with diabetic children are a class unto themselves -- they ONLY think about children, and their ONLY goal is a cure. They are SO passionate about their own viewpoint that it is almost impossible for them to see anyone else's. I really wish they could take a broader view! Their children WILL grow up and become adults, most likely WITH diabetes, because there is no guarantee of a cure any time soon. But they can't see that far ahead in time.

Meanwhile, there is the issue of the fact that we are all talking to other human beings, and if you wouldn't say something to someone's face, you shouldn't say it on the internet, either. I learned, long ago, in Usenet times, how bad flamewars can get, and I learned to avoid starting or participating in them. But some of these young parents haven't gotten that far -- they still need to learn netiquette. (Hope you like that word!) I'm hoping that they will, even though there may be hurt feelings. Meanwhile, I'm waiting on tenterhooks to find out how you like the new Omnipod, WHEN you get it! :-)

Oooh, I like hanging around on FB a bit but I don't see problems being solved the way they are in the forums here. Every now and then, I can toss some of my schtick out there but it's sort of swept away very easily I think?

Comment by Kate on March 27, 2013 at 4:09pm

Just the facebook d-downers. Lots of people complaining that the omnipod has been approved for a whopping 2 months and they don't have it in their hands yet. Then it turned into a name calling bash between PWD's and parents of CWD's. blah, blah, blah. I want it as much as the next girl, but my mother taught me to be patient and watch my mouth. Some people sure need to learn that lesson :) I would quit them all, but sometimes I feel the need to be a voice of reason in the midst of the madness.

Natalie - when I got my nook 2 1/2 years ago I could not work the touch screen for the life of me. My husband promises that when we finally get out of student loan debt we can emerge into the 21st century and consider the fun gadgets like smart phones. I'm sure there will be cyborg phones by then, so I'll still be behind the times. ((sigh)).

But the good news is that I *should* have the new omnipod by then ;)

thanks for supplying the t:slim link Natalie...looks interesting :)

Comment by acidrock23 on March 27, 2013 at 3:27am

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! :-)

Comment by nel on March 26, 2013 at 4:59pm

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! :-)
