First of all, to make it clear, this chart is like a “to do list”, with a range of actions you may take to get a better control of your diabetes.
Next, keep in mind that the chart will serve as a marvelous guide to help you identify if the changes you've made are helping in beating your diabetes.
As the chart contains the figures of your blood sugar, you should compare them with the normal and abnormal ranges. You should record your figures and pass them to your doctor.
The table at the top of this page shows the ranges for normal (healthy) blood glucose and for pre-and-diabetes. So, you can compare your blood glucose records with those drawn in this chart.
It is very easy. If you have a look at it, it is connected with blood sugar log sheet. In other words, once you fill up your log sheet, the result will automatically appear in the related glucose chart. In this way, you can see it straight away how your sugar reading stays in comparison with the normal ranges.
Also You can get it in other formats
Every time you measure your blood glucose, the chart will show your result, becoming longer and longer. Therefore, you can see how well you have been managing your diabetes.
Keep in mind that you cannot put the blood sugar levels in eternity because it will be hard for you to see all those results in a small chart.
To make it easier, you can make a log sheet for just a week or a month, and see the oscillations of your blood glucose in the chart.
Please apply all the right rules when measuring your blood glucose. In addition, check your glucose meter function occasionally to see its accuracy.
First, write down your own chart, and register your blood sugar levels figures anytime you measure them and compare with the normal range figures provided in the above table.
If you measure your blood sugar levels before meals, and it comes up between 80 and 120 mg/dl, that means that you are doing a good job on controlling your diabetes.
In case your figures before meals come out more than 120mg/dl, that means you need to undertake some more changes to get better improvement in your diabetes control.
However, do not forget to set your own goals with your personal doctor for better diabetes management.
