Information

FLATLINERS CLUB

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.

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 jrtpup Jan 21, 2012. 448 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??

Started by onesaint. Last reply by Jaybyrd May 21, 2013. 149 Replies

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 am just proposing it, there's 65 potential posters, we have plenty of time to line your ducks (low carb ducks, of course...) up in a row and get ready by Tuesday.

Or, even if you blow it off, do some John Denver, "Rocky Mountain Highs" and dance around the campfire and post and yack about it? IT's been slow lately...I'd put on my cheerleader suit but, well, after that Louisville guy...

Sweet! I love Flatt and Scruggs! But I think I missed the TPS report about next Tuesday.
Comment by acidrock23 on March 1, 2011 at 3:53am

In honor of everyone posting lines next Tuesday, it's Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys!!

FWIW, a of times, benefit levels are selected by the companies through whom the insurance is procured. They are facing profit pressure too and, if they get an offer to shave off some premium dollars, off with your test strips.

They are chaotic and disorderly. For companies that are so judgmental and curt with their clients, it is always fascinating to me how poor of a job they do.

Hey looky here I can get my Dexcom from Animas!!!!! This according to HealthNet. Hey Courtney you have a Ping do they offer Dexcom too? No they don't, even took the time to call Animas and verify this. Onesaint I don't know about headless chickens but I do know the people at HealthNet have their heads shoved someplace!
Comment by onesaint on February 24, 2011 at 10:11am
Wow Seth, thats nuts. I hope getting your magical pony err Dexcom insulin pump works out. Insurance companies remind me of a bunch of headless chicken running around bumping into things and each other.
Comment by Seth on February 24, 2011 at 9:45am
Yep called the restaurant every day for three days. Retraced all my steps, no luck.

Now I am in a fight with my insurance company (HealthNet) because they won't cover a "Dexcom Insulin Pump"!!!!! No F'n s***!!!! You aren't going to cover something that doesn't exist? Does this mean I won't grow up and marry Snow White? Maybe if I pull Excalibur from the stone I can be king! And HealthNet says I they aren't contracted with EdgePark anymore. Oh it is so long and involved I could scream. Well I have screamed a few times.

More to follow. I have calls into a half dozen people.
Comment by onesaint on February 23, 2011 at 1:58pm
So sorry to hear that. Any idea which restaurant it was? I suppose youve tried calling them to see if it was returned. How lame for someone to take / keep it. I hope it somehow finds its way back to you.
Comment by Courtney on February 23, 2011 at 1:44pm
That's terrible Seth! How in the world are you managing without it? Just a few hours without it and I feel lost. I was thinking of how to label mine with my address and have seen other posts about it and can't figure out where to put the label. With the Dexcom label on the back of the receiver it doesn't leave room for much else. So sorry!!!
