Default CGM Data

Been playing with my CGM data and tweeking my basal insulin routine.
It's almost done and I'm surprised at data. Maybe one real low, the rest of the lows in the image are false lows. The other data is very accurate, when it's high it's high and when it alright it's fine. The enlite for me doesn't identify lows correctly, but I'm a type 2 and don't have many lows anyway. Only one in the 3 -4 months I've been pumping.

As you can see there a two places that need tweeking. I'll wait 3 days before making any more adjustments. When I'm satisfied this is correct , I'll move up to multiple senstivity and multiple I:C ratios. Right now I have 5 basal times.

Looking good, Roxanne!

When people somehow get an image into the body of the text, it often warps the width of the thread which requires scrolling sideways to read. Using the manage attachments with its thumbnail icon is a better option, and we can all click the thumbnail to see the larger image.

There are 2 distinct peaks & 3 lows. All of them are pretty consistent (time wise). I'm sure this will help you tweak your BG a bit more.

Roxanne - thanks for posting that image. It's the first time I've ever really studied a chart of someone's CGM numbers. What a fabulous record for you to have of your daily numbers and how consistently they fluctuate over the course of a day. I had never considered what a great thing it must be to know so specifically when and how your numbers go up and down.

(If it weren't for the need for sleep, boredom of waiting around, and the calluses from too many finger-sticks, I'd be tempted to do a few 24-hour intensive experiments on myself, testing every 15 or 20 minutes!)

Yes it does. I didn't think I needed the CGM in the beginning, but everybody insisted on it and I'm glad I have it, because you definitely can see the patterns. I worked in statistics before I retired so I'm OCD about it all. LOL. Medtronic knows I don't like the inaccuracy of the lows, but they are still trends and tells me that I need less basal during those times, so it's still useful.

Well I don't recommend doing that all in one day. I used to try to break it up in segments and try to test two hours or every hour when I expected the fluctuations. I would skip a meal and then test through six hours to test out basal. I never could get that lantus just right, so I was glad to get rid of it and use just humalog.

For those that may interested, here is my CGM data from the last few days.

I had been having lows in the 60's during the night so I turned down the basal at night a few days ago. The weather is about 10 degrees cooler and already I see a downward trend, so I've been tweeking the basal doses.

I also think the Warfarin makes for easier blood sugar control. I'm amazed that treating heart disease makes the blood glucose better. That couple with exercising frequently and LCHF , I might even get rid of the insulin in a year or so. LOL. It's still very hard to do the exercise and but I do and up the speed and resistant every week or so. I want to start strength training, but I have to ask the cardiologist first.

Anyway, I'll wait 3 more days and visit this again, so I'll know by then if I need any changes. Since the changes a few days ago, my results are fantastic, if I do say so myself. I've struggled for a long time and I still have some struggles left. I see the retinologist next week and find out if the warfarin is hurting my eyes.
