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

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

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

hobbit - I just went through discovering how to post my lines here from the Dex Studio software. I use a Mac computer to post to the website but use a netbook PC running Vista to upload from my Dex receiver.

I can give you detailed directions for this setup but am not much help with other operating systems. You basically want to create a jpeg file of a portion of your Word file.

I go from Word to pdf, then take a "screen shot" of the part I want to save and then "export" it. After the export, it opens in another window that permits saving as a jpeg. A bit of a tortuous path but at least it works.

I figured it out by googling "create a jpeg from a Word file." Let me know if I can offer additional help.

Nicely done @2hobbit1... Coming back to this group has made a difference in my lines as well.

Comment by 2hobbit1 on May 23, 2014 at 9:41am

I'm pumping U-50 novolog, via a tslim, with comfort short slant sets. My U100 equivalent TDD is around 10units.
Have my basal rates dialed in and will micromanage them when I see a trend repeat more than 2 times in a time period especially over night. Do not like to snack/stack IOB from meal to meal so meal times at approximately 7, 12, 6. Enough time for things to clear before the next go round. Tend to do 30,40, 30 carbs over the three meals so only around 100 for the day.
Have been observant of types of carbs I can do when, and avoid any that Dexter shows me will spike my numbers.
I also will use temp rates to help with high fat, high protein meals when I see I'm hanging and not dropping back.
Also if my guesstimate is off Will add in an additional 5 gm every 30 minutes until my trend goes flat. If I over shoot I'll drop my basal down to compensate.

What /how do you copy and paste your lines from the dex program. I can't seem to figure it out am using chrome as browser. Not sure if that is the issue.

Amazing work Hobbit. Can't wait to see the lines. What sort of treatment regiment do you use?

Comment by Terry on May 23, 2014 at 7:29am

hobbit - Those are great weekly stats! I'm sure your BG lines reflect that. Good job.

Comment by Kate on May 22, 2014 at 7:08pm
Kept it between the lines, nice Danny!

94% in range is amazing, hobbit! Keep up the hard work!
Comment by Clare on May 22, 2014 at 5:23pm

Great job hobbit, those are some very impressive stats.

Comment by 2hobbit1 on May 22, 2014 at 4:46pm

Not having much luck posting a line. But wanted you to know that what I see here is making a difference in my numbers. Can't get there all the time but for the last week dexter says I've been running an BG average of 99 with 5% high, 1% low, 94 in target range of 70-130 with an SD of 18%.
Doing the happy dance!!

Comment by Terry on May 22, 2014 at 12:40pm

@Danny - I have noticed when I exercised daily and then miss a day, it's as if there's kind of grace period for decent BGs. It doesn't persist for more than a day for me.

You're between the lines! Good work.

@hobbit - Yeah, vertical changes, whether stairs or a trail are very condensed exercise routines. The only time my BG rises when I exercise is if I'm over 200.

@nel - Is the tylenol disturbing your actual BGs, the CGM line, or both?

Comment by nel on May 22, 2014 at 9:49am

FYI ...Tylenol Extra strength meds playing havoc on my BG's ...sadly I have flat lines of too many lows
