Does A CGM Like Dexcom Or Libre Really Read Low All The Time?
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

That certainly is the perception with those of us who have used or use a CGM (continuous glucose monitor) but do they really "read low".

First we need to understand exactly what they are "reading".

A Lab test, so when you go for A1C, 8 hour Fasting Test, A Random Test or an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) they are drawing blood directly from your veins.

Your veins contain the "most accurate" level of blood sugar "at the time of the test" because veins are "closest to the sugar source"… read more

So What Are Blood Glucose Level Recommendations Based On??
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

Ya, I'm really bored today, so here's another one 😁

Each of us should have our maximum blood sugar levels for Fasting, Pre-Prandial (before meals), Post-Prandial (2 hours after eating except in the UK where they use 1.5 hours) and Before Bed (if required – typically just Basil Insulin users for dosage recommendations) set by our Doc

If we have confounding conditions such as Heart or Kidney Disease, other hormone disorders (Thyroid, Pituitary, Adrenal) then it becomes even more important that… read more

I Could Use Some Suggestions
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

For most of the past dozen years I have been working actively in the local diabetes community and for the past half dozen years I have been one of the presenters for a wellness group that primarily focuses on Metabolic Syndrome with Type 2 being the "biggie" under that umbrella

Last year we expanded our mandate to include a weight loss/management program for those that are carrying a bit of extra weight but have not "yet" developed a metabolic disorder and want to do something "now" to prevent… read more

What Does “Eat Your Meter Mean”?
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

(this will be in two parts)

Some of us use the Term “eat your meter” as a method to control blood sugar, so what the heck does it mean and how does it work?

Simply it means testing your blood sugar level before and after a meal (or just after if you regularly check your fasting number) to determine “what effect” what you just ate had on your blood sugar levels

In practice there is a few more steps to turn it into your most valuable management tool

To illustrate I will use “Fictitious Bob” as… read more
