Information

FLATLINERS CLUB

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

Members: 217
Latest Activity: on Tuesday

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.

Rocky Mountains (low valleys and HIGH peaks)

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

Rollercoasters

Started by FHS. Last reply by Terry May 28. 490 Replies

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

Correct AR, just the cgm. I'm looking forward to seeing if this one will catch the quickie hypos, better than the navi did; and posting some pics of the graphs. The hypos have slowed considerably, since I had the doc change one of my BP meds. As long as my kidneys aren't acting up, that helps a lot as well. Thanks for responding.

I would do both? It's critical to play with the manual while you are playing wiith a new toy. So this is just the CGM, not the pump?
Comment by Trisha01 on April 15, 2011 at 11:09pm
Just joined the CGM group, and clicked on Danny's link there. Posting the same message here - hope it's ok to do that.

Just wanted to say hello. I'm a former Navigator user. As of Monday (4/18/11), I will be a new owner of the MM RTGuardian. So what do I do first? Play with it, or read the manual? :) Thanks!

LOL@ my inbox. I have a special account for stuff like this and can review it quickly!! I was just commenting on the ratio of stuff I de...oops, I mean read, being so heavily FLAT!!

I wasnt going to post (Saving AR's inbox one post at a time!), but I have to add, I think the amount of involvement in this group is awesome and AR just has himself to blame... He started the re-kick off thread! =^) You rock AR!

I think I had more posts in my email from this group than I did from the main "Forum" link when I got home from work!

I think it is a normal body function (at least normal for diabetics, not sure about normal people!). I know when I do basal testing & test every hour, I can get numbers that go up and down a little. It would be nice if it were a true flatline, but there always seem to be a few curves in there.

Latest wigglings of a squirrely mind: Do you know why the line on the monitor zigzags up and down? Is it an artifact of the inaccuracy of the monitor, or do our BGs really do that? And if so, why -- if we don't have the pulsatile secretion of a normal pancreas, and if the insulin from the pump is in a bubble-like depot, why would it be irregular? Or am I on a wild-goose chase?
Comment by Kelly WPA on April 9, 2011 at 3:29pm
Natalie, 178 ia not that bad for your first try, plus you did not even read Danny's instructions when you did it! I agree that next time you should try extending it longer. I had to do that with TAG when I first started. Just keep in mind that since the first few hours were right where you wanted them, if you extend the time without increasing the insulin, you will probably go high.
Comment by Richard157 on April 9, 2011 at 1:40pm
Well Natalie, I did very well with pig insulin for more than 4 decades, but I suppose being a pig is somewhat different. Lol!!!l

When I eat pizza, I order thin crust, medium size, supreme at Pizza Hut. I eat 3 slices (69 carbs) and bolus 7 units, then 3 more units two hours later. I don't seem to have a high above 130 with that routine.
