I understand that every diabetic needs to monitor his/her blood sugar level in order to
keep diabetes under control.
Therefore, every diabetic needs to have a log sheet where to record the blood sugar results.
Furthermore, you will need a diabetic blood sugar chart in order to compare your results with the normal ranges (low and high ones).
Here, you can get a copy of a printable copy, where you can record all the results of your blood sugar tests and have the comparison with normal ranges.
Now, I am giving a guideline on how you can use this chart on your own at home or anywhere you go.
As you may see, it consists of two parts:
- The left part is designed to record your blood glucose results. You can record the time and date where you had your sugar measured. Furthermore, you can make your own notes, when did you measure, for e.g. just woke up or when you were feeling dizziness or shaking, etc.
- In the right part, all your records will appear automatically in the chart; therefore, it would be easier for you to see where your results appear in comparison to the normal ranges.
As I have always recommended you (and it is also the recommendation of ADA for diabetes management), every diabetic should have his/her own normal ranges.
In other words, if in general, the normal ranges are between 70
and 120 mg/dl; this does not mean that is your normal range.
If you discuss this with your doctor, your normal ranges could be higher than of the general, which is also called acceptable sugar levels .
Therefore, you should write your acceptable levels and compare each record with them. In case, your records will be lower than your acceptable levels, your doctor will set other normal ranges for you and so on.
It might seem difficult to manage your records, but it is not. You will need time to get used and everything will be as easier as nothing else will.
You can follow the instructions for further details. You can print your sugar chart and present it to your doctor to undertake the most appropriate actions for the best diabetes management.
