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

Members: 219
Latest Activity: 18 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.

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

Cool! I'll have to go check it out. Thanks Terry. Those notes are always great to read.

onesaint - I've posted detailed food, insulin and exercise reports under the various subgroups. I just put up my line from yesterday under "Rollercoasters."

Terry, keep posting. It's a driving force that inspires. Also, would love to see what you're doing for the day food / exercise wise.

@Kate, I didn't realize there was a second little one now! Congrats!!!

I posted two more lines today. I hope no one tires of my posting; it really helps keep me motivated. I also hope that it shows to the occasional visitor here what is possible. That is the biggest lesson I learned when I stumbled upon this group a few years ago.

I have sufficient experience and respect for D to realize that, for myriad legitimate reasons, not everyone can do this. I've been there! It's still important that we reach for "better" everyday, whatever form that might take.

Lol Kate - I speak fluent typo and understood completely what you meant :).

Comment by Kate on May 18, 2014 at 10:01am
Gah. Clare, you COULD bounce a ball on that line. Sheesh.
Comment by Kate on May 18, 2014 at 9:59am
Whoa, Clare! You found bounce a ball on that flat line!

Danny - you kept it between the lines. I say that's a big accomplishment!

Onesaint - little ones are doing well! Eli turned two a few months ago and Zane is 8 months. Life has calmed enough for me to find a couple minutes to check in here once and a while :) hope things are well with you!

Terry - you inspire me! I am looking forward to the day that I can be within my range 80% of the time.
Comment by Terry on May 17, 2014 at 8:21pm

I have four main goals for my daily CGM numbers:

1.) Time in range 70-140 mg/dl >= 80%
2.) Time hypo < 70 mg/dl <= 5% 3.) Average BG <=110 mg/dl 4.) Standard deviation <= 30 I've always thought these were stretch goals for me and reaching them makes me feel better.

Now that I'm posting here, I'm considering the general classification structure as flatline (within a 20-30 point range over a good length of time), roller coasters, and mountain peaks and deep valleys. I know it's subjective and in the eye of the beholder.

Last Thursday I posted a 24 hour trace that I classified as a roller coaster here yet it met all four of my above goals. My system is easier to satisfy for its highest marks but meeting its goals is not easy. I just thought it's an interesting contrast.

Here's the bumpy line in question:

In the end, these various ways of looking at the data are all just ideals that cause us to reach for the best we can do. The only real reward is feeling better in the here and now and maybe extending better health to an older age.

Lol, ugh, I wish I was rocking! Today started out messy and high, 171 on the CGM at 4ish AM so I was 120 when I woke up so I bolused out my reservoir, changed it out calibrated, did online kibbitzing and ate a big breakfast, w/ 50 mile bike ride on the plate. I bottomed out around 43 like 45 minutes later. So I took the MrsAcidRockMobile to the DMV for emissions testing and then got an oil change and blasted off on my ride about 115. 50 miles and 75g of carbs later I got home and have been begging but BG is low with IOB so...time for a Guinness!?
