Pssst.... pass it on!

I just wanted to stop by to see if you've done your Big Blue Test Today. Dont' forget that every time you log a Big Blue Test $5 is donated to diabetes charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services.

If you haven't yet, go log a Big Blue Test at http://www.bigbluetest.org/. If you have, do another!

First thing I noticed was that I was spiking an hour after eating, then back in range by 2 hours. Never knew about the peak! So... that's corrected. Yes, I'm much more interested in daily data than a1c, and I can see averages and SDs, def. more important to me.

Overnights... I went through a few days last week when I crashed to the 30s during the night. I'd slurp down a juice box (next to the bed) and go back to sleep. Then it stopped, just as suddenly. Then it started again LOL. So now I'm having a 5g cracker and some peanut butter before bed , the 70/80s show that it's working, for now anyway LOL

I've also started using TAG - pretty much staying under 120. I don't have it nailed yet by any means but it sure seems to work when I get it right.

Update on the dex. It's been totally awesome. I email reports (printed to Word) to my CDE weekly - the last comment I got was that everything looks great, not to change a thing. The dex has given me sooo much more info to work with. I've changed basal rates a tad a few times. The last 2 nights I've managed to flatline around 70/80!!

Let me know how you're doing, and check out the flatliners club. Great place for us OCD g33ks :)

Thanks for the friend add, T1Tech! Love your dog in the photo! he looks kind of like a greyhound or rhodesian ridgeback? I have a 10 year old mutt (looks like a baby german shepherd but we think maybe husky and shar pei? you never know with rescues!)

good job on the a1c! Don't forget to enter your a1c on TuAnalyze (on the top banner).

So far the dex software seems great! I actually don't have my training till Monday, but of course stuck it in the minute it came. How can I leave a new tech gadget in it's box??? So on Monday I'll show them the reports I have so far. What can they do, tell me I shouldn't have? LOL

Yes, zoos are good for BS lol. At one time we had 6 cats, a dog, an iguana, an assortment of snakes and other herps in my daughter's room - she's a herp lover!

Hey, welcome to Tu! We seem to have a lot in common - started on my Ping 4/1, I'm a dog person and have been called geeky (what a compliment!). Your furkid is beautiful. I have 3 Jack Russell Terriers; we compete in racing, etc.

Again - welcome!

Wow! What an overnight welcome! I knew this was the place...

I'm a Type 1 pumper & g33k but have never signed up for a diabetic forum / blog. They all seem geared toward less experienced diabetics so there really was no reason to join until I found this one.

The reason I joined here? The group called "Flatliners Club". I am a recent pumper (13 years on injections, 5 months on my new toy from Animas) and an even more recent senor user. Once I got the massive amount of data in my hands I got pretty excited. I now realize the flat line is the sweet spot - & ima go after it!

Anyone out there with a better A1C than a normal human?
