"Thanks for the ideas! I am a T1 and on the Minimed pump, which works great (usually!). But now that I am on the Dexcom, I can see what happens in between my meter testings - and it is alarming! I do need to double check basal rates as well as my I:C…"

"Funny, but we didn't realize that my son was having those crazy highs and lows either until he started wearing his CGM. He has 3 highs per day (250-260) and then comes crashing down 3-4 hours later. If we don't catch them with 10-15 carb…"

"You could start small with carb-reduction. Replace half of your servings of bread/pasta/potatoes with salad/veggies, etc. Replace pancakes/waffles/cereal with eggs/bacon/sausage. When eating out, substitute low-carb sides for high-carb sides. If a…"

"I am a big fan of dr, bernstein's Diabetes Solution approach. I use a much higher number of carbs then he recommends, but I started there and it helped to get my lines very flat. My a1c went from 8 to 5.0 in 4 months using Mdi (my last one in…"

"Thank you everyone so very much for your time and sharing your good ideas. I am going to take some of these suggestions . . . checking and adjusting my basal rates first, then confirming my insulin to carb ratio (realizing it may be different at…"

"agree with all great advice below. It would help all of us give you advice if we knew more regrding your regimine. Normal food choices, pump or not, T1 or T2, injection sites, etc. Thanks."

HPNpilot replied to icuski2's discussion 'Blood Sugar Swings' in the group Dexcom Users
"People have said most of the good suggestions: 1) First test and fix (If necessary) your basal rates, by time of day 2) Adjust the I:C and correction ratios. You may need different numbers by time of day. 3) Consider a lower carb diet. Carbs are one…"

"All good advice before me. Personally, I have struggled with this issue for the 14 years since being diagnosed, but have only really been aware of it for about 2 years, since getting on the Dexcom. Even more, it has really only become especially…"

"Are you on a pump? I think it would be MUCH easier. I've been able to tweak the settings and am pretty much between 80 and 180, with a nice flat line hovering around 100-115 between the hills. I don't think my numbers would be anything…"

Biomuse replied to icuski2's discussion 'Blood Sugar Swings' in the group Dexcom Users
"As John's excellent post already said, getting your basal, carb ratios right and adjusting to activity patterns is very important. I also find that regular, scheduled exercise evens things out overall. Try to make that a part of your…"

MikeU replied to icuski2's discussion 'Blood Sugar Swings' in the group Dexcom Users
"Before starting on a pump, working with a CDE to make sure my basal (Levemir) was correct. At the time, I was on a sliding scale, so we also worked to get the scale right. Other than that, these things helped me avoid the roller coaster: - use only…"

John replied to icuski2's discussion 'Blood Sugar Swings' in the group Dexcom Users
"Not easy to answer without details. 1. How recently have you checked your basal rates? Mine have changed as I have aged, and I have distinctly different needs work days, weekends, and vacations now than when I started on the pump 15 years ago. 2.…"
