    @scottleibrand Is that what you were looking for?

    @LilDucky
    that is what I would describe as mountainous terrain! real steep rises.

    @cooljoe04
    Yea, not sure how much was from the Glucagon vs the glucose gel, but if definitely got it up!
    LilDucky
    @LilDucky
    to put the graph into context, what time was the hypo?
    cooljoe04
    @cooljoe04
    At/just before the giant spike at 7am-ish
    LilDucky
    @LilDucky
    Hmmmm. interesting
    what are the basal rates just before then? and also the temp basal rates?
    cooljoe04
    @cooljoe04
    Not sure, how does one get a label on the graph to show that?
    First time using NS reports. lol
    LilDucky
    @LilDucky
    my uneducated impression is that you stacked a shizz of insulin. what is the DIA? what insulin in use? I would expect others with more practical knowledge to chime in here...
    dunno about labels on NS - I am about to start to get data flowing up in the next day or so, all going well
    LilDucky
    @LilDucky
    also, what was your IOB?
    cooljoe04
    @cooljoe04
    Not saying it is impossible, but that would be the time of day I was just getting up, so the chances of stacking insulin would be pretty low, especially when it appeared that my CGM was showing around 130, nothing alarmingly high or anything.
    LilDucky
    @LilDucky
    interesting that basal etc was still flowing at the time of the hypo and that it ratcheted up 3 times just beforehand (assuming it occurred just before the scheduled basal up-tick at 0700
    to put my comments into context, I am not a T1D but have a good chunk of medical knowledge and also do a lot of data anlysis
    cooljoe04
    @cooljoe04
    There was no SMB delivered around that time, and the highest basal I can do is 6.3 since I have not done anything with decocare to handle higher basals
    Based off of the graph, the top of the rendered basals just below the 80 BG mark is 6.3u/hr, so you can use it as a benchmark for some of the other levels.

    @LilDucky
    You seem to be using a load of insulin above your programmed basal quantity. appreciate that you were high around midnight. what is your ISF? DIA? normal basal?
    how old is the site? action of insulin seems to have slowed off from around 2:30 AM ish and then hit like a peterbilt later on
    cooljoe04
    @cooljoe04
    Normal basal is around 1.3 at night I believe. Not sure of the ISF/DIA currently. Once I get rig working again I can compare with autotune. Site wasn't too old, no reason it should behave oddly. Continued using it for another couple days. Has been changed since then.

    @LilDucky
    bizarre. looking after 4am it feels funky to me
    Scott Leibrand
    @scottleibrand
    @cooljoe04 if you use the regular nightscout view instead of reports, you can click on the miniature zoomed-out graph at the bottom to move to a different retrospective view, and even click and drag to move around
    that way you can see all the basals rendered, treatments, purple prediction lines, etc. the same way you normally would
    LilDucky
    @LilDucky
    @scottleibrand interested in feedback on my interpretation - be as brutal as necessary as it is a good learning tool for me in preparation to getting the loop running over the next few days.
    Scott Leibrand
    @scottleibrand
    @cooljoe04 another question: did you ever measure a low BG? or are you just inferring that based on the seizure?
    cooljoe04
    @cooljoe04
    Does the view at the bottom let me go back to Saturday though? Didnt look like it would let me go more than a couple day
    Scott Leibrand
    @scottleibrand
    ah, yeah, it's limited to 48h
    cooljoe04
    @cooljoe04
    just inferring based on seizure
    Scott Leibrand
    @scottleibrand
    and was the CGM accurate after you came down from the high?
    looks like it from the bg checks I see
    cooljoe04
    @cooljoe04
    It was relatively close. You can see a few of the BGs from the meter onthe graph
    Scott Leibrand
    @scottleibrand
    in that case, it's possible you had a non-hypo seizure. you might want to talk to your doctor about whether it'd make sense to screen for anything else
    cooljoe04
    @cooljoe04
    Anything is possible. lol
    Scott Leibrand
    @scottleibrand
    I've never seen reports of CGM that looks that spot-on before and afterward miss a <40 hypo while reading >120
    cooljoe04
    @cooljoe04
    Agreed. That's what threw me for a loop on it too
    Scott Leibrand
    @scottleibrand
    lots of ways for them to get miscalibrated, drift, etc. but all of those would show up as either noisy readings or calibrations being off before or afterward
    do you or your family have any history of epilepsy or any other common causes of seizures?
    cooljoe04
    @cooljoe04
    Not a one.
    LilDucky
    @LilDucky
    interesting angle @scottleibrand - he was idling along pretty flat for a few hours. biggest thing I see is programmed basal of ~1.3 and consistent high temps with an average level around 2.5-3.0 ish
    did you take any paracetamol (acetaminophen over there)?
    or other medications
    cooljoe04
    @cooljoe04
    While your expertise is online Scott, any idea how to determine what happened that filled up the memory on my edison and won't let me run anything on it now?
    Scott Leibrand
    @scottleibrand
    I know how to check. Let's move that one back to ITB
    cooljoe04
    @cooljoe04
    I dont remember what I did Friday, but unlikely that I took anything. Rarely do. WHen I do, its Bayer Back and Body
    Scott Leibrand
    @scottleibrand
    so aspirin and caffeine, which should be fine.

    Hi all - I still plan on testing out the glucagon at some point. However, I've prioritized the glucagon test for later on. The latest additions to openAPS which include eSMB have taken my average # of lows from about 15 per week down to less than 1 per week on average. With the latest openAPS, the cost/benefit of using two pumps and two infusion sets became a harder case to sell. I don't think I would consider glucagon therapy personally until something like the bionic pancreas is available. For now, the little time I have to devote to these efforts will probably focus around helping Paul where I can with xdrip-js.

    @scottleibrand
    :-D love to hear that. "We could have a dual-hormone AP already, but the people who were going to work on it haven't bothered because our insulin-only algorithm is so good" is awesome. ;-)
    fidoman
    @efidoman
    @scottleibrand - Exactly right. Couldn't have worded it better myself. I never imagined that openAPS would ever be able to do as well as it has with the insulin-only algorithm.
