A Challenge

This is a challenge to you and to me. My current health care provider has asked me to do a few things in order to assess where I am with my diabetes management. Easier said than done. I figured I may have a better chance if I made this public and challenged myself along with others to complete this task.

They are asking for my current blood sugars, for five days. They provided me with a handy dandy chart to record my numbers.

Blood Sugar Results BEFORE MEALS
Date             Breakfast                      Lunch                 Dinner                                 Bedtime

The chart only asks for my blood sugar and Insulin taken. I highly suggest you also record the food you eat, but then again, I'm not a MEDICAL doctor :)

Do this for a week (or five days) and see how your blood sugar levels change through out the day. I know mine always tend to be high in the morning. Take your results to your health care team and see what conclusions you can come up with regarding your diabetes management.
Since I put this out there, I better do it. I'll let you know how it goes.


  1. I don't have blood sugar levels, but I can record what I eat?

  2. I do believe Weight Watchers highly suggests you do :)
