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

Members: 205
Latest Activity: Feb 18

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.

The below 24 hr trend is from Nate, a 15 year old type 1 Diabetic... with a little help from his mom Emily, they are achieving some of the most inspiring trends to date. A 15 year old producing 24 hr Flatlines??? wow! Need I say more?"WOW, a little…Continue

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

2 days and counting until Phlat Tuesday!!!

That's a great job two days in! Getting better data was the big plus of the CGM for me, despite the obvious inconvenience of sticking a giant needle in. Just remember to POST YOUR PICS TUESDAY 030811. If it's flat, use the 12-24 hour range thread and, if it's not, use the Rockies discussion! After all, in the spirit of the season, it's a Rocky Road to Dublin...

Hi, here is the modal graph for my first 2 days on the dexcom - hardly a flat line but if it helps me identify patterns hopefully i'll get the spikes ironed out :)

if the next few days are similar, should i maybe increase my lantus? it seems that once my mealtime bolus shots have worn off i start to climb again but then my morning sugars are pretty good so not sure if that's the right way to go. any thoughts would be appreciated!

Oh no, I didn't mean to frighten anyone. One alternative for people w/o CGM displays might be to finagle something w/ your meter software? I dunno how advanced those are but they might do something for fun? The whole point is to have fun. Diabetes is not widely known for being fun so we should do what we can with it? Of course, then we can get all businesslike and do some engineering or whatever but well, you know...

@ Richard, I like older country stuff more, I'm not a huge fan of the "clean" country sound they put out these days as much as I like F&S and the Carter Family. I admit to having the Reese Witherspoon "Wildwood Flower" on my running playlist though...

I have not used my Dex since October because my new insurance does not cover a CGM. That is not so bad, I have good control, but there are a few lows and highs that I could have avoided with my Dex. I never have a bad low at night though, That is good! I had used my Dex only 8 months or so at the time I shut it down, so it has some life left in it. I also saved 11 sensors and will use them this year when I am on vacations and doing things out of the ordinary that might cause a roller coaster on my Dex screen. That is when I will really need it.

I love Flatt and Scruggs, Ricky Skaggs, Rhonda Vincent and Alison Krauss. I am a true blue grass fan.

Tuesday is Line Day!! I will attempt to post videos all week to lure some people who haven't posted lines lately to join in! Maybe toss it out on the main board while we are at it....

I recently got a new phone so photos have been slow to come. That and work has massively increased the micro management since the holidays. None the less, Ill start banging them out with you AR.
