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

Members: 226
Latest Activity: Jan 8

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

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 Kim S. (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.

Comment by Clare on October 22, 2014 at 3:00pm

Thanks Terry, the Omnipod has certainly helped dramatically smooth out the ups and downs. I find now if the basal rate is perfect I can get 8-10 hours of solid between the lines numbers. The combination Dex/Op has improved virtually every aspect of my life from my concentration, my sleep, my energy level and of course my D. I routinely get 3-4 weeks from my sensors and only change them out when I get consistent ??? or dropped readings. My transmitter was new less than 6 months ago so hopefully that will continue to function properly. My endo and CDE are now on my cheering squad instead of blasting me for too many hypos. 5.5 is a "non-D" A1C so I'm pretty happy about it.

Comment by Terry on October 22, 2014 at 2:36pm

Nice line, Clare! I think one of the biggest advantages with this kind of line is the low variability. Your SD of 20 is excellent. I saw in one study that measured non-D people that their SD was 15.

I used to be able to easily get 14 days from a sensor. I just changed out my last sensor due to a few hours of ??? status. I also changed my transmitter that was 9 months old. We'll see if I can get better performance.

I've had several Dex lows like yours where it was not really as low as the recorded line.

103 is a great average when you limit time less than 70 to 2%!

Comment by Clare on October 22, 2014 at 2:02pm

Here's my line from yesterday:

My sensor is on day 15 one calibration was because Dex was saying 60 and I disagreed with it meter said 77. The rest are pretty close.
The green band is 70-150 mg/dl
Time in range: 98%
Time < 70 mg/dl: 2%
Time > 150 mg/dl: 0%
Avg: 103
SD: 20
Overall I'm thrilled with this. Especially not really being low - Dex just "thought" I was low.

Comment by Terry on October 22, 2014 at 1:43pm

Here's my line from yesterday:

My sensor is on its 11th day and the "lumpiness" of the line is due to its age. The second and third calibrations (red stars) show the sensor drift.

The green band is 65-140 mg/dl. My goals are in the [brackets].

Time in range = 88% [>= 80%]
Time <= 65 mg/dl = 4% (lowest value = 61 mg/dl) [<= 5%] Average = 105 mg/dl [<= 110 mg/dl} Standard deviation = 30 [<= 30] Overall, I am happy with these results.

Grey bar is set for lower edge 3.8 (69mg/dl) to upper limit 4.8(87mg/dl). Crazy that the Nav was withdrawn in America where I guess it was invented! It is extremely accurate and has good range (I used a dex 7plus also in the past but the Nav was much better for the above reasons for me). There is now a Nav 2 (I have the old Nav 1.5). Nav 2 has colour screen... Still anything giving feedback helps! Regards

Comment by Terry on October 22, 2014 at 12:56pm

Ralph - Nice work! What values does the grey bar on the graph represent? It looks like the lower edge is less than 4 mmol/L. It's too bad that most of these pre-formatted displays scrunch our lines into such a narrow part of the screen. I've never used the Navigator since it's not available in the US. It's ironic since I live less than 10 miles from the Abbott Diabetes headquarters in Alameda, California.

Comment by Ralph on October 22, 2014 at 12:46pm

In case line in prev post looks too neat, here is the day before. Bit poor signal at night - was probably lying on it (is in my usual placa back of left arm). Got up with fine BG 4.3 (77) however. In a hurry so no food nor insulin then fast cycle to work (E). I expected BG to go down but liver dump spiked glucose to 7 (126). Did not believe the Nav hence the cross where used BM stick to confirm. Just what Dr B says: never exercise early in morning with no insulin!

Great to see the flatlining continuing here. Continued inspiration so many thanks!
