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

Members: 220
Latest Activity: 17 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

Pat, Im with you on the Dex working better than the MM. I had issues with the MM to the point that I called it quits. For me the best choice for the long term is whoever has the thinnest cannula. Less irritation, less issues. Ive been on MM (508 then 722) for 8 years or more now and havent had an issue with the pump, but find the sets to sometimes leave something to be desired.

Trisha, You can post whatever youd like. We'll take anything showing a trend.

I started on the MM CGM on Thursday 4/21. So far, it is very accurate, within 4 to 7 points. The lag time seems to be right at 10 minutes. It did not hurt when we did the insertion. I actually think, that the needle is smaller, than the Navigator needle was. I had taken apart one of the navi sensors. :) If I recall correctly, the Navigator needle was 21 gauge, whereas the MM CGM needle is either 28 or 29 gauge. I will be doing a needle comparison, with them side by side, and will show the image. I hope to have that by Sunday evening.

Karen, there is a site diabetesforums.com where a few members are saying they get very good accuracy with the MM CGM and they are wearing their sensors 2 weeks. Most MM CGM users say the accuracy is not so great, and they can not get 2 weeks from a sensor. If you use the MM sensors maybe you can talk to those DF folks about their success. Aren't you already a member there?

If you stick with MM, you could get the MM pump w/o sensors now, and decide later if you want to add MM CGMS when new ones come out.
There is a post on another group (don't remember which one) with a detailed description of the new MM sensor released in Europe. It sounded much improved !
Comment by Karen on April 22, 2011 at 3:57pm
Pat, I have not looked at other pumps and I am a bit afraid to change brands as I have had really good luck with the MM, but I don't like the sensors if I decide to try a CGM again. I see the endo end of May, hope pump lasts
Comment by Natalie ._c- on April 22, 2011 at 3:28pm
I can't use the Dex because I have frequent sinus headaches, and can't use decongestants or antihistamines, so I use a lot of acetaminophen. I'm REALLY hoping the new MM sensors turn out to be more accurate than the current ones!
Comment by MM on April 22, 2011 at 3:25pm
Karen - have you been able to trial any pumps, or at least get your hands on them to see how they look and feel ? Most dr's office or CDEs have samples or demo models, and some pump companies will provide a trial. Or you've done that, and just can't decide ?? I hope to do that later this year.
Comment by Karen on April 22, 2011 at 2:50pm
I just got a fresh vial of Lantus to relieve some of my anxiety, but I need to get the ball rolling on a new pump
Comment by Karen on April 22, 2011 at 2:14pm
Right I am afraid to wait as my warranty expired on my pump and I have had no trouble with the MM, but the sensors, oy vey.
Comment by MM on April 22, 2011 at 1:30pm
Hi Karen, I'm in the same boat. currently using MM pump, and thinking about whether to stay or switch after warranty runs out in December. I gave up on the MM CGMS, and started Dex about a month ago. So now feel I have more flexibility in choosing whatever pump come next year, and potentially switching back to MM CGMS. But only if I trial the new sensors, and if they have improved ! But I actually like having the CGMS on a separate device, and it can be more accessible for frequent checks. So I'm leaning towards Animas pump next year, and integration with Dex at some point. For me, the Dexcom works much better than MM.
