As anyone knows who has diabetes, there are several pains involved. One is having insulin injections. One is due to pricking your fingers to get blood out to do tests. One is writing down your blood test results, which most of us consider a right pain too!
With many of us aware of how much our diet affects us (for many of us diabetics, we are what we eat and inject). We’re often asked not only to take down blood test results but also to keep a food diary. Both are combined here in an easy to read, easy to fill in, easy to understand dairy.
Each booklet covers 32 days. Each day has two-pages to view, so that every day has a whole page on which to note down your eating habits. This will help you to see which foods bring on high blood sugars. You can check at a glance without relying on your memory or having to refer to your blood test meter’s memory to remind you what your readings have been over the last 24 hours or more. In addition, opposite the food and dose log, is a chart into which you can plot where your results go each day, giving you a visual aid to spotting patterns (always low mid-morning, for example).
This year the diary has been sponsored by Accu-Chek and it includes some handy phone numbers for diabetes-related companies and charities.
They are being sold in pack of six diaries, each diary lasts a month, for £5.99, so £1 per month for great diary keeping!
