LifeAfterDx--Diabetes Uncensored

Hi! I’m William “Lee” Dubois (called either Wil or Lee, depending what part of the internet you’re on). I’m a diabetes columnist and the author of four books about diabetes that have collectively won 16 national and international book awards. (Hey, if you can’t brag about yourself on your own blog, where can you??) I have the great good fortune to pen the edgy Dear Abby-style advice column every Saturday at Diabetes Mine; write the Diabetes Simplified column for dLife; and am one of the ShareCare diabetes experts. My work also appears in Diabetic Living and Diabetes Self-Management magazines. In addition to writing, I’ve spent the last half-dozen years running the diabetes education program for a rural non-profit clinic in the mountains of New Mexico. Don’t worry, I’ll get some rest after the cure. LifeAfterDx is my personal home base, where I get to say what and how I feel about diabetes and… you know… life, free from the red pens of editors (all of whom I adore, of course!).

Not sure how to take this . . .

Dear Customer Service:

Today my CGM “mooned” me. Is it being an ass? Is it telling me that I’m an ass? Or does it just mean my blood sugar control is shitty?

Yours Truly,

Haha. I'm always seeing pictures in my CGM graphs too. Recently I had a high heel. I see lots of breasts (show you where my mind's at) as well as more boring things like lighthouses, cups, etc.

I'd take a view of that moon over no images at all! Many of us still struggle to get these devices, and while fingersticks are accurate, a CGM might enable more dosage refinement. Your CGM is telling you and the world that all this diabetes management stuff can kiss it's ass!

Wil, I think you need to start a new Flickr group of weird patterns from Dexcom displays. I've got lots that look like a wild rollercoaster.
