Has anyone tried this computer program? I stumbled upon it and it sounded interesting, so I wondered if anyone has heard about it or used it. It's supposed to help you track your bg levels.

I never heard of that but i go to managesugarstats.com for mine. It helps keep me doing it, otherwise I just don't bother. I like seeing the charts and so forth they show as to how your sugars are going. Sheila

My daughter and I both have FreeStyle Lite meters. I use CoPilot to download and track glucose levels, meals, meds, etc. I recently purchased the USB to download directly from each meter and each of us have our own profiles on this program to download the information to. But prior to getting the USB for our meters I was able to manually put in all the information. I can then print out the information and take it to our doctor's visits. At our next visits I will also find out if our doctor's use this same program and if they do it can be sent directly to them. It can also be emailed.
There are several programs available to do this including the one you mentioned. I still keep a written log book as well, and a journal of BGL's, food, exercise, emotions etc. that I take to the visits as well.

I currently use Accu-Check 360 by Roche that has a compter interface I find amusing, and before then used One Touch Ultra-2 that also had a compter interface. I changed to the Accu-Check 360 for several reasons: it used AAA batteries, the display was bigger and brighter, the strips were in a drum, and the lancing device was attached to the glucometer. The accompanying software is easily individualized, and transfers information electronically (not plugged in). Printed reports, in my opinion, take too much paper and one cannot set printer to use two sided option (if it's possible, please tell me how).

However—- if one has Excel skills its not necessary to use any software as he/she can create a report pulling routine glucose readings data from information entered in a self-made grid using "conditional formatting." While I have not done this for glucose levels, I've done it for creatinine levels to track slowly increasing levels.

I haven't used this software as I don't use a PDA or mobile phone very often. I recently found out my meter manufacturer offers a similar type software (WinGlucoFacts) and the USB cable to import all the data from your meter to your home PC. I've ordered it and hope it will help in reporting info to the Doc as I'll be able to print the charts and graphs to show him my progress. Perhaps your meter company offers something similar that would help :)
