I am looking for some advice of organization of logging numbers...we have such busy lifestyle & making sure to write the bs #s and cb #s & bolus #s seems sooo overwhelming sometimes. I call our "d" team once a week w/ ds # log & my dh & me just can't seem to write all the info down & then I'm left the night before I call going thru the meter to get the history but it doesn't help me w/ the cb#s or the bolus that we gave ds. I know this is not good for my ds bc these logs are improtant to his "d" care & I want to be a good mom & do what is best for him. Just looking for your input on how you all deal w/ this aspect of "d" care...Thank you a bunch

I forget, is your son on a pump? Our minimed pump has some software thru their site that you can download the pump and the meter, so you can look at everything, even if you forget to write it down! I just found this out recently, and it has made my life sooo much simpler. I have gotten bad about writing stuff down, except when we are trying to figure out a pattern to make adjustments or for the 2 weeks before the endo appt. We write on sheets our endo gives us...I made a bunch of copies to have them on hand.

When we were on shots(lantus & novolog) we used a logbook printed by minimed for pump users. It has a space for each hour, and you can write the carbs, etc. At the bottom, it has a section to write meal info. You can order them from the minimed website...I think they were like $1 each. You can ask at your clinic, they usually have them. Each book is for 30 days.

You can PM me your email & I could scan the sheets and a page of the logbook to show you if you want.

What kind of meter are you using? The one we have you can enter all of that. Since we are on a pump it stores it all. I do wind up having to go through all of it to get my numbers. Maybe you can get a prescription for the meter we use. It's the Ultra Smart one touch profile. I think that's what it is called. I'll go look up the exact name for you later.
