Latest Activity: 14 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.

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 did include a brunch as well with some really tempting carb choices. I didn't succumb to the banana walnut French toast though.

Clare - The profile of a non-diabetic's glucose is a marvel to see. It can be discouraging, too. It truly is the Holy Grail of BG perfection -- an A1c of 4.5% and no symptomatic hypos!

Harmeet - I went through a bout of more substantial insulin resistance about five years ago. I was using twice the insulin that I am now and had worse control. I was also eating prodigious amounts of carbs. I remember taking insulin corrections and not seeing any drop in my blood glucose.

I used symlin 10 years ago. I did help somewhat with post meal spikes and it decreased my appetite. Then the benefits seemed to wane. I got tired of dealing with the added injection regimen and the nausea I sometimes felt. I've never tried invokana or victoza. With this misadventure with metformin, I think I'll stick with my current system.

Comment by Harmeet C on December 25, 2014 at 7:41am

@Terry - as you may know, there are other medications out there that can help with BS control such as Invokana, victozia, and symlin. I've read some reviews of T1s where they found success with symlin. I understand the desire to keep BS in control. I found myself to be insulin resistant when my sugars would go over 160 and at times I had to give myself 20 units of insulin, when the reading was 220, to bring the sugars down. Good luck and happy holidays!

@Terry - The Holy Grail of blood glucose perfection is reserved for people with functioning pancreata. I agree with the electronic techs and happy holidays.

Comment by Terry on December 24, 2014 at 10:03pm

@Clare - My "insulin resistance" was relative to my control. My total daily dose is just under 40 units per day and that works out to 0.5 units per kilogram of body weight - the textbook definition of insulin sensitive.

Back when I worked on aviation electronics, the common saying among the electronic techs was, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" This was usually offered after someone, in an attempt to make a unit perfect, broke something else in the process.
