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

Members: 223
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

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

I was just looking at the stats for my blog & someone did a search for “Dexcom Flatliners.” Maybe it was Dr. B!

Ahh, I see. That feed I posted was from the "view all" discussions button. I think it just feeds when a new discussion is started.

Glad you got it working, Kate!

okay - RSS update...The link that onesaint provided is wicked old and the most recent update is from a discussion from March. It wasn't showing any new content. So I got rid of that one and created one from each of the discussions and am in business. Thanks again for all the help!

RSS is a way to deliver updates from websites (content). Its called a feed and requires a reader of some nature. In this case, if someone posts to the forums here, the RSS feed will be updated with a snippet of the post and a link to it. Depending on the reader, you might get the full post in the feed. So, its sort of like outlook, but in a preview sort of way, almost like a ticker tape with stock market updates.

The advantages are that when a site (like TuD) gets updated with a post, the new post will come up in the feed notifying you that there is new content on the site. it requires less interaction on your part than email, and since its like a feed or ticker tape, it doesnt fill up your email inbox with tons of notifications like email updates do.

Hope this helps and for more info see wikipedia.

Natalie - RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It creates a list called a "feed" that shows updates on websites, blogs, forums, etc. It creates a folder on your toolbar and you can see the most recent updates.

Natalie, if you click on the little RSS feed symbol, it will bring up posts from whatever site the feed is for. Somewhere on your screen, you will see "subscribe to this feed." If you subscribe, then new stuff for the site will automatically show up. If you have 10 different sites you subscribe to, then the feeds will show up in 1 spot without you have to go to 10 different websites to look for new material.

Would someone tell computer (and photography) illiterate me what is RSS? What does it do, and what advantages does it have?
Comment by Kate on April 27, 2011 at 1:23pm
Danny - yep! It looks like the link that onesaint provided gave me the option to have the flatliners rss feed on my toolbar. I will just keep an eye on it and see if it works. Otherwise I will go to the yet unformed plan b :) Thanks for all your help, guys! Hope I didn't cause much trouble!

I assume the RSS feeds are written to show up deepening on your browser and if RSS is supported.

The small Icons I posted about seem to be static on different pages (top content, view all discussions, individual discussions, etc.), while the "RSS +" comes and goes depending on new posts, I suspect.

Kate, you can filter the emails, or do something like email to RSS. Although, I dont know about how often youll be updated.

Danny, the +RSS used to be there, but is not currently.

The icon that onesaint has circled, shows as a link to the top content. It is - on this page, at the bottom right, just below #10 for top content.
