I have been using a special needs binder for my children to help keep me organized. I tried the idea out to see if it would help me in keeping my medical and diabetes organized and resourceful. It has been a amazing gift and idea as a whole. It than got me thinking about adult people with diabetes and other medical issues. How many people would find it helpful if there was one created for us adults in mind? Would this help other people with keeping things straight and organized? would you personally use one to help you out?
I came up with a rough rough binder plan and idea for us adults. The binders are very simple and easy to use. All your medical information, logs, and notes in one handy spot to take with you at each appointment.
The binder is basically set up with a 3 ring binder/device in 5 different tabs: Medical information, Report, Logs, Education, and Notes/Misc or how ever you feel it would help you. Keep track of: meds, supplies, BG numbers, procedures/test, surgeries/hopitalizations, weight/BP, and many more things we deal with. It is even great if there is ever (hoping theres not though) a medical situation and family, friends, or someone can see and know. The concept could be tried on thumb drive but there are some medical facilities that will not open them. Due to the risks of virus's and other issues. How many of you have more than 1 medical problem?
I hope all is well with everyone out there. I wish all the best of luck with their diabetes :) !!!
