Blood Sugar Charts
« on: May 23, 2017, 03:17:22 AM »
Read an article today on how Blood Sugar Charts assist both the care giver and the patient in effective treatment. Read the full article here.

I'm reminded of our own BG Tracker App and wonder why many of us don't use it  :(

My meter downloads my readings to my computer and creates charts quite easily.  I have never had a doctor, and I have had several, that paid any attention to these printouts.  I think it's sad and shows how poor doctors are trained to treat a diabetic.  Also the "acceptable" levels shown on this article may follow ADA guidelines but are not acceptable.  To consider it acceptable for a patient to have blood sugar levels far above the point where organ damage occurs is just wrong ! 
Nevertheless, I like the records and charts and it helps me to follow how I am doing.  I just wish more doctors learned the usefulness of these for thair patients.

Agreed. When I read the article, I was reminded of our very own BG Tracker which could also help see a graphical variation in BG. Therefore, I copied the link here.

Surely those levels are too high to be considered 'medium' or 'normal'. I also really love the BG Tracker. It shows up any anomaly visually and keeps me alerted.
My life is based on a true story.

Yes, I think if more people used the bg tracker here they would find the graphic helpful as you can view your levels over a period of time at a glance.  It just takes a little time to make the entries but it is worth it.

I too like the tracker.  Until we had it here, to use the tracker on the old forum was the only reason I went there.
