JD replied to Bethany's discussion 'Bad things about the Dexcom?' in the group Dexcom Users
"The G4 is great. And if the FDA approves, it will eventually, the Animas Ping and the G4 will be combined into the Vibe. The G4 is remarkably accurate. The analysis software really lets you identify specifics in your BG management. If your are…"

JD replied to jmhnyc's discussion 'A1c and Dexcom avaerage don't equal up so frustrated' in the group Dexcom Users
"That is confusing. Over that same time period, what is your standard deviation? If you vary a lot, and it doesn't seem that from what you wrote, that might explain the average and the A1c delta. I have been on Dexcom for years and with the…"

"Total Available Glucose. The premise behind TAG is that a portion of the protein and fat content of the meal will also contribute to carb loading above and beyond the actual carbs in the meal."

JD replied to Danny's discussion '12-24 Hour Flatline' in the group FLATLINERS CLUB
"I'm a TAGer and didn't know it. I use Diabetes Pilot bolus calculator. Part of the calculator is for protein grams. When I became Type 1, I could not figure out how a zero carb meal made my BG go up. Protein affects BG! Here are my DexC…"

"I had a day like that. In the 150+s and can't get it to budge. It is as though the insulin does not work some days."

Steve D replied to JD's discussion '100%' in the group Dexcom Users
"I couldnt agree more...whenever I go less than 60 it starts an awful rollercoaster ride. If I go less than 50 I know my next read will be over 300 (I guess I tend to over correct) I know the highs are (long term)more harmful but the lows (especially…"

JD replied to JD's discussion '100%' in the group Dexcom Users
"This is what I get for bragging. Fell of the 100% boat the very next day. 71% in target. I had 29% in low, with a low of 52 (ooops). My avg was 91 with a high of 129. My SD was on 17. I hate the lows because they can start a roller coaster.…"

"Congratulations! I had a pretty good day yesterday -- never went over 200, but haven't downloaded it, so I don't know the SD. But I have to admit that it takes a lot of work to do that, and a lot of care as to what I eat and what I…"
