Hi all! I've came across a handy phone application that tracks and graphs blood sugar! It also graphs insulin use , a1c results, excersice, and carbs intake! Its very handy to use ! I bring it to the doctor when I go visit so he can take a look at my graphs! It also has a calculator to help with the amount of insulin needed to match carb intake. My doctor really likes looking at the graphs and says its very helpful! This app is called GLUCOOL. I use it with my android phone. They also have a choice of many different apps like this one for different phones! I had to share this because it is so handy and convient! Many of these apps are Free! Check it out for your phone and I think you will love it! I do! Its proven to be an excellant tool to see where I'm at and how I'm doing! I just love the graphs and charts and as I said so does my doctor! Many different phones have the same applications. I think its wonderful that they make these tools avaiable! Check it out and see if they have an app for your smart phone! Its really a wonderful tool! :)

I have an iPhone and have 2 different apps on my phone, one for myself and one for my hubby. They really come in handy and it sure is nice to be able to email your numbers to the doctor. I do this for our blood pressure readings also.

Aren't they nice! I just wanted everyone to know about them! I'm glad you have one too! They are fun to use and really give you a clear picture of how your doing!

I used to email a spreadsheet of my Bride's vital signs to her endo twice a week. That was a big part of getting her BG#s from over 400 down to "normal"

I did it with a regular computer, no iphone.

That's soo cool! Its so nice to be able to track your results like that weather its computer or by phone application! I just love all the new things they come up with now! It really gives me a good idea on how I'm doing! It beats looking at numbers in my book. The graph is real nice! :)

Yeah, I think I could get MS Excel to create charts & graphs for me too. If I can figure out how to do it.

I found that the graphs or charts really don't help me with my understanding, so I never bothered making them. If they speak to you, enjoy!

Yeah it does help to look for patterns of highs or lows ect. But as you said for each his own and what ever works for some may not work for others! Have a great day and its good to hear from you! : )
