Information

FLATLINERS CLUB

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

Members: 215
Latest Activity: on Sunday

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

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

One thing I don't like about using the main wall is that you can't correct a comment once it's posted, except to delete. I don't mind using either/both.

AR - Good job on your last 24 hours! Looks like the last few hours you spent @ 65-75. Is that about right? Have fun with your cycling. Chicago weather in May can can really vary. Low 90s here, SFO, today.

I like this main wall better than the brokedown threads. One big cocktail party. The last two weeks were like the worst 2 weeks of my *engaged* diabetes life, last bottle of a "shipment" or something but the new juice is here and I'm rolling again. I signed up for the Tour de Cure so replacing running with biking but the weather is urky. Oh well...

I know I've abused the comment wall by posting my lines here. Sorry. There was so little activity in the various discussions, I figured it would be more visible on the comment wall. I'll place all future lines in the allotted space.

I'd like to see more traffic here but this dusty corner of TuD is OK with me! At least these discussion will be available for people well into the future.

I love reading the comments !!! I have not been wearing my Enlite very much and am close to deciding to purchase the DexcomG4 as a Medtronic VEO pumper ; I ended up in ER ( my first time ever because of the d on April 25...I was p.o'd ) ...A follow up XRay on Mon April 28 showed a slight collapse of vertibrae 8..cancelled my Holland trip of May 6- 17 ...am still taking pain killers and no exercise /physio till next XRay by end of month .Osteoporosis for about 7 plus years does not help .My moral of this story : PWD maybe at risk !!

Whoa! There is still life around here! I miss this gang :)

Thanks, onesaint. I remember that you've posted many great lines here. What I learned from people like you and Danny and AR is that this kind of BG control is possible. Before that, I had no idea that this level of control was within my reach!

Comment by Terry on May 9, 2014 at 11:52am


Would've been nice to continue on my great run of the last few days, but this is the evil D were talking about!

The arc of my overnight BG line was probably from a 1 ounce of macadamia nuts, a snack the evening before. I dosed insulin for the 4 grams of carbs but did not do an extended bolus for protein/fat. I worry about the overnight low it might cause. I think I will do the extended bolus for evening snacks in the future.

I had an open-face Starbuck's sausage sandwich, one muffin discarded. That comes in at 21 grams of carbs, 19 grams of protein and 28 grams of fat. I took 5.25 units of insulin immediately to cover the carbs and 4.8 units over 4 hours to cover the fat/protein. I pre-bolsed about 30 minutes.

One hour after eating I went for a 40 minute walk. My walk started at the top of the BG bump after breakfast, around noon. It appears that my usual dose for the Starbuck's breakfast was too much combined with the walk. I think my insulin sensitivity has increased recently. I will consider backing off on a few basal rates.

I had to eat 2 or 3 glucose tabs to treat the low around 2:30 p.m. You can see the glucose tab bump at 3:45 p.m. The BG line decayed again and headed for low territory again and I defended with about 3 or 4 glucose tabs just after 6:00 p.m.

I ate dinner at 6:15 and did a 15 minute pre-bolus. Dinner consisted of a 4 ounce hot Italian sausage and 200 grams of onions sliced and sauteed in coconut oil. Carbs = 24, protein = 24, and fat = 31.

Not too bad a day but I did spend 15% of my day < 70. My goal is < 5% with < 7% acceptable. My time in range (70-14)0) was 84% with and average BG of 97 and a standard deviation of 22. These last 3 parameters were all within my goals.

Green stripe = 70-140 mg/dl.

I didn't keep detailed notes on this day. I backed off on my 4 a.m. to 7 a.m. basal rate by 0.1 units but still had a low soon after I got up. I treated with 2 glucose tabs.

I had my usual late breakfast around 11 a.m. I only went for a 1 mile walk that day, for about 20 minutes after breakfast. I ate dinner around 5:30 p.m.

Stats for the day were excellent: BG range 59-140. Time in range = 99%. Time < 70 = 1%. Average BG = 103. Standard deviation = 19.
