We had put on a sensor and this are three days for example. Sorry that the image is to small to really see well. But you want to be in the grey area, which is 90 (5) to 180 (10). The curve starts at 0.00 at night. The nights he stays below 225 (12.5). the first peak is his breakfast and insulin at 8.30 The second peak is evening meal at 19.30 and insulin. Note: when under 234 (13) the bloodsample is about equal. when the sensor measures higher my bloodsample is lower.

I think the best thing to do is do and full 12 curve and include all times and readings from all including the sensor and the hand held meters
then we can see more what's going on

I am very happy with the sensor. These are 24 hours curves from nov 19. He was diagnosed in okt. In nov I red on internet about these sensors. You can see his numbers were to high most of the time. He was on dry diabetic food then. The nadir was oke. You can see well the difference between nov '19 and juli '20

I LOVE his consistency - the patterns for those two days are nearly identical.

Where are the meals and injections on these graphs?

Hi Natalie,
Because of downsizing the image (so I can post it here) it gets hard to read.
On the left side it starts at midnight. Above the graphic are every two hours noted. In november he eats twice a day (special diabetic dry food)at 8.00 (with insulin) am and 20.00 pm (with insulin). You can count the grey hours above. Starting 0.00 - 2.00 - 4.00 -6.00 -8.00 -10.00 etc. The curve ends again at 0.00 at midnight. The graphics from november 2019 where not satifying. He was already rising his BG hours before eating. After eating his BG were high (against the top line) The nadir was oke.
We were happy with the graphics of july 2020. There you see a flattend curve. Then he eats (Raw diet) at 8.30 am (with insulin) - 12.00 (no insulin) - 19.30 (with Insulin) He eats three meals thesame amount of food.

Thumbs up Re: New to this forum

Bart is now a year diabetic. So we did a bloodcheck at the vets to look at how the organs are dealing. And it all looked good. Last year his livernumbers were to high, but now they have gone down to normal. We are very pleased. Bart is feeling good. Playing -running and hunting for mice. That's much better then the first months. Now he is back a normal dog like with no diabetics.

Thanks for your good wishes.

We don't use the sensor constantly. See how its going next year. Maybe we use one every 3 to 4 months. The sensor lasts for 14 days. Then we see if we are doing good and leave the daily routine unchainst. (food- insulin-exercise) or that we have to change anything.
