My current system for keeping track of what I eat, when I exercise and what my blood sugars are throughout the day is fairly simple: I create events for each meal, exercise and blood sugar reading in iCal on my Powerbook. (Click on the image to the left for a screenshot) Although it doesn’t give me pretty charts and graphs, it does give me this nice printout (see image to right) to take with me to the endocrinologist, then they can compare it with the charts they download from my glucose meter. I can also set alarms to remind me when to check.
The main problem with this method is that it doesn’t help me track how many carbohydrates I ingest at each meal. Although I keep an account at FitDay, FitDay is also flawed for diabetes tracking in that it only tracks your total carbohydrate for the day rather than at each meal.
Does anyone knows of an online-only system similar to FitDay specifically for diabetics?
