FLATLINERS CLUB

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

Members: 222
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.

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

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

it looks really solid to me Terry, nice line

Comment by Terry on October 26, 2014 at 5:29pm

9-hour 40-minute, 34 wide groove

This line included about 5 hours of sleep, started at 2:34 a.m. and ended 12:14 p.m. I woke up around 3:30 a.m. and delivered a 1.2 unit correction bolus.  It was a good correction but didn't seem to bring the line down much. 

This is a little higher than I like, ranging from 111 mg/dl (6.2 mmol/L) to 145 mg/dl (8.1 mmol/L), but I'm not complaining.

Comment by Terry on October 26, 2014 at 10:03am

Clare - Your pizza bolus didn't miss by much. Perhaps a little more pre-bolus time or a little more insulin up front for the big carbs. I agree, you had a great BG day, despite the food you ate.

I know you exercise a lot, so maybe your metabolism is more forgiving due to that.

A good night leads to a good day

I read in one of the artificial pancreas trials that when researchers observed that good control during the night, it tends to lead to good control during the day. Well, this is certainly true for my experience yesterday.

The green strip is 65 mg/dl - 140 mg/dl (3.6-7.8 mmol/L).

My goals:

>= 80% time in range (65-140 mg/dl)

<= 110 mg/dl average (6.1 mmol/L)

<= 5% time less than 65 mg/dl (3.6 mmol/L)

<= 30 standard deviation (SD)

I hit my goals 4/4:

Time in range: 98%

Average: 107 mg/dl

Time low: 2%

SD: 17

I ate a late breakfast at Starbucks at 11:30 a.m. I had a ham and swiss cheese melted sandwich open face, only half the bread. At 5:30 p.m. I had sauteed onions, tomatoes, scrambled eggs with full fat cream and peach mango salsa. I did a Big Blue Test (BBT) 15 minute walk right after breakfast. I walked for 40 minutes about an hour later and went for a 15 minute BBT walk after dinner.

The pizza bump got to 182 and then headed back down again. I guesstimated 70 grams of carbs between the pizza and the homemade, absolutely incredible tater tots :) and I extended it out 3 hours. Of course since it is the weekend hubby and I decided to go out for dinner which ended up being a big pile of chili nachos. There was another bump from that. Overall considering all the crap I ate I still spent 83% of my time in range with an sd of 30.

Comment by Terry on October 25, 2014 at 9:13pm

Your pizza bump didn't go over 200; not so bad. Did you have a rising extended line later from the fat? If not, then that's a pretty good effort. How many carbs did you dose for? Did you do an extended bolus too?

Comment by Clare on October 25, 2014 at 1:24pm

Nice line Terry - I'll go for the gentle slopes over the rocky hills and valleys any day of the week. I had a less than successful flatbread pizza today for lunch. Well the pizza was delicious, my attempt at controlling my blood sugar was not great but I take it all as a learning experience. Day 19 of the sensor and it's still getting every reading.

A gentle 11 hour and 30 minute ride

This sweet overnight line ranged from 75 to 136, not flat, but sweet nonetheless. I've been challenged recently by lows around midnight and highs, 150-175, from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. The highs are the result of either over-treating the lows or from late evening snacking on nuts. The lows are usually the result of mis-timed insulin for evening snacks.

Anyway, last night's line was beautiful to see. (I gotta muster some discipline and just stop the evening snacking!)

Thank you onesaint it's gratifying when hard work pays off.

Comment by onesaint on October 22, 2014 at 8:33pm

Clare, that's amazing. It's fantastic to have the endo and CDE cheering you on. When your doing as well as you are, it's hard for them to scorn you.
