Common Questions and Answers about Printable blood glucose log book


446049 tn?1649005835 You can start by eating low GI foods. Start a log for foods you eat, the amount, and eaten with what. Test your glucose before eating and 2-3 hours after to see how the foods you consumed affected your glucose. Once you have the low GI foods handled, then maybe try some moderate/medium but never in the high range. There are many GI charts listing foods consider low GI that to my body are considered high. Like I stated earlier, what is good for you may not be for the next person.
Avatar n tn It is an on-going battle between the two of us to get him to write down his sugar level and insulin when he checks. He is on a regimen of Lantus and Humalog and basically uses his own discretion when counting carbs and giving insulin. Does anyone have any suggestions on how we can better track his numbers, besides me following him around with a log book? He uses the Accu-Check Instant meter.
Avatar m tn Diabetes Solutions". You can log onto amazon .com to read reviews of this book. The rule is very SIMPLE: to stablize the blood sugar, I always try to LOWER my carb intake.Period, the other way around, to me, is dead wrong. The other half of my diabetic journey is that I am using a herb that I have discovered and developed so effective enough for me to steadily lower my blood glucose A1C to 5.6% , taken 12.28.11.
490398 tn?1319940717 This is NOT a fasting glucose. My dad is diabetic and he has all of the tools to test blood. He has regular diabetes not Type 2 but it usually skips a generation. I had blood taken at the doctor last week, again, not fasting, for other health problems and it came back at 169. My doc obviously wants to retest me when I've been fasting and get an A1c.
Avatar n tn I'm a novice when it comes to diabetes so I could use some help. I'm on 2.5mg of Glipizide and have been for about four years. My doctor discourages blood glucose testings -- says that's only necessary if I were on insulin. However, I will occasionally check my blood sugar -- maybe once or twice a month or if I'm not feeling well. I checked it on Sunday and found it was running somewhat high.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know where I can purchase a baby book for a girl???? The one where it has all her first moments and information leading up to her birth.
Avatar m tn Keep daily checks of the readings, keep a log book.
Avatar f tn There are a million free printable chore charts available online. I was using an online one for awhile where the kids would log in and click what they did, but that one didn't work for us after awhile. Now we use a paper one that i customized for the girls. They have the opportunity to earn $5 a week, but they have to save $1 and donate $1.

9470507 tn?1404220799 Hello All been feeling out of sorts, started seeing a new (better) doctor and per suggestions from others bought myself a glucose meter online to check my levels. Back on 6/5 in office blood tests showed non fasting Glucose levels at 56 (range 65-99), lab results from 6/26 Hemoglobin A1c 5.5 (range 4.8-5.6).
1948564 tn?1324647050 If only we could all live that dream. I would suggest using a log book, you can get one from your doc or free from some meter companies. Write down your blood sugar before your meals, carbs you ate, if that is how you give yourself insulin, and your dosage. A carb is not a carb, and they are not all going to affect you the same. Also maybe the activity you had the day before, etc. If my son plays basketball the night before it affects him all the way in to the next day.
Avatar f tn They sent me home with a book of meal plans (great selections) a meter and strips and a log chart. I had to check my blood before eating in the morning, and then every 4 hours after that. I had to record all of my logs down. Hope things get better! Good luck hun!
Avatar m tn Carbohydrates (carbs) raise BG exercise lowers BG (strenuous exercise can raise BG) insulin lowers BG use your meter to test those are your tools, keep a log book and you will see a pattern.
Avatar f tn Flash forward to now and frequent need to urinate, lethargy, fatigue and often weird reactions after eating such as pale color, shaky, anxious, etc. My blood glucose on many, many CBCs was always good yet something was off. Went and bought a BG monitor with the following results: Fasting BG: 95 one hour after a meal 122 two hours after a meal 118 Should add I am a 30 year old advid exerciser who eats well but has a past sugar addiction and am now worried I did myself in.
Avatar f tn Comfy going home clothes for you, missing bra if you're nursing or just a really comfy bra, toothbrush, hairbrush, contact stuff etc that you would take on a normal overnight thing, makeup if you want it for after birth pics, pads for after birth bleeding, flip flops or slippers to wear if you're going to walk during labor, camera, baby clothes, a baby blanket, diapers (they might give you some at the hospital...), your baby book if you want to get their footprints in it.
Avatar m tn As every bodies body is different a sure fire method to understand how foods you consumed affect your glucose levels is to start a food log, an Excel spreadsheet notating what you eat, portion size and what your preprandial [b4 meal] and postprandial [2-3 hrs after meal] test levels are. Pay close attention to carb intake. It's a catch-22 for diabetics. Our bodies need carbs for energy but at the same time carbs raises glucose levels. This where portion size comes into play.
Avatar f tn Use your home meter to test your glucose levels. If you're having memory issues start a log - date/time/dose - so you have something to reference in the future.
Avatar f tn And I have to keep a log of the food I eat and fax over my logs with my food eaten and the blood glucose levels. Sometimes the GD can be controlled with diet. However, mine was okay with diet but not fabulous. So they had me take an oral prescription and i take it before I eat breakfast and lunch (glyburide). Now the blood glucose levels are under control. I the nutritionist calls me all the time and they go over your logs.
Avatar f tn I have had T1D for 9 months now. The last week or so my blood sugar had been between 240-340 mg/dl and I can't get it to come down. What should I do?
Avatar f tn Please read the book mentioned by tombcx. It gives you a sure way to control your blood sugars. It is the best tool I have ever found. Please make sure you get the 2011 edition, which is just released and contains much new information and advice compared to the 2007 edition. If you cannot get your A1C down with diet and exercise you may need to add a medication such as glucophage / metformin.
