# Re: [IP] spreadsheet

```My impression of this was that the lady had created a spreadsheet that said, for
example, my blood sugar is 250 and for that, at my rate of X units, I need to
take Y units to bring my BS down to say 100.  I have a big printed chart that I
got from MiniMed with my pump that shows me this info.  You could figure it out
mathamatically, but it would be really nice to be able to plug it into a palm
and have it pop up with the answer.  I did not believe it had anything at all to
do with your food rate but your coverage rate for high BS.  I guess what I need
to do is find someone who knows how to work a spreadsheet program and do it
myself.  I can see a real usefulness for this in a Palm.

<<<I'm a Diabetic and have to track my Blood Sugar Levels several times a day.
It was a
real bother, having to carry a log book to track the levels and calculate a
sliding scale insulin injection. I created an Excel spreadsheet to
auto-calculate the sliding scale insulin and downloaded the spreadsheet to my
Palm.>>>
