In the past 24 hours, how many times has your blood glucose risen above 180 mg/dL (10.0 mmol/L)? (For this question, we are looking at separate periods of hyperglycemia, rather than consecutive glucose readings above 180 mg/dL.)
Odd that you should ask this question today, because I’ve been running 100% Time In Range for the past day and 1/2. This is unusual for me. Usually, I go below 70 about 3 times a day. But, not today 🙂
It’s been a rough 24 hours, blood sugar wise. Had issues keeping it up where it needs to be. So today should be the opposite.
Unfortunately my Dexcom G6 as of late has been acting a tad bit wonky. Admittedly this is extremely frustrating to say the least with these extremely rapid changes in direction mostly down then off and then upon return up again. Not sure how a company can sell a product which is FDA approved and that functions in concert with a pump, did I mention frustrating and concerning. Looking forward to the future advancements of wearable watches which are non-invasive and hopefully 99.9% accurate all the time.🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞
I keep my low alarm at 80 so if it’s dropping quickly I had time to correct it before it gets too low.
The tSlimX2 pump report indicates less than 1% very low which would be 0.01 times 24 hours which equals 14 minutes. So. this amounts to either a zero or a one.
I am so preoccupied with the minutiae of experience and the protean nature of time anyway . . . but what the heck? . . . Who knows what a digit, a numerical integer number really means? Is this abstract quantum set theory or something?
When I was pumping learned I need a lot less insulin at night, now on pens if I dose just for that time frame levels get too high through the day. I “compromise” dosing to limit overnight lows and just make little stronger corrections through the days. I expect to be woken by my low alarm maybe 5 hours after going to bed (disgustingly loud and obnoxious) at 75, a sweetened drink on my nightstand I’ve always had, can generally roll over for a couple more hours. My week levels through a new program (xdrip+, to relay readings to my watch someday) show an average glucose of 114 with a standard deviation 23 (a1C possibly at 5.6). I’m super active (gardening all day today, already drug the dog 1 1/2 miles) so hit that 75 a lot.
Kind of like a non diabetic would: I see below 70 a few times but like a “normal” body would a sip raises levels “20-25 points.”
With Tandem CIQ, I get <2% in hypo range, rare at night, and when I do it is usually my fault- over bolusing for food, or exercise. Love this system
2 below 70. One last night and one mid-morning below 70 mg/dL, but I have my low set for 60 and high 130 in day and 160 at night. Loosely normal days.
It’s been an unusual 24 hours for me and I haven’t gone below 70 at all. (If I’d a been asked last week, totally different answer!) :p
But, I’m doing really great today. So… Yay! 😀

What does that test indicate? High risk for developing type 1 even if it is not already present?
