Re: [IP] PDAs and Diabetes.. to Adriana



.............................................................................
....................
Hi Adriana.. I too use the OT Ultra and just love it.  I have a Palm M125.  I
have downloaded the trial versions of a few diabetic programs and I don't like
them.  I have created my own Excel Spreadsheet, I hotsync that to my palm and
that's what I use to keep track of bloodsugars, insulin, basils, notes...
It's set up as a landscape (horizontal) page and each page holds 1 week.  When
I'm done with the week and have everything hotsynced back to my computer then
I just fax those pages to my endo's office.  It works great for me.
I also use the USDA free food database on my palm.  It doesn't calculate carbs
and whatnot like other programs but it is free and seems to work for me.
If you're interested in seeing the spreadsheet.. email me off list and I'll
send it to you. (email @ redacted)
Good luck!!

   I am looking for a PDA or something that will help me keep track of all the
  diabetes stuff. I am horrible at writing things down!  I use One Touch Ultra
  because I love the small size and the fact that I get my results in 5
  seconds. I am reluctant to try to Tracker because I really like my OT Ultra.
  I downloaded the trial version of the Animas program and I am not thrilled
  with it. I don't like the food data and how you get your BG readings. My
  doctor likes to see each day written horizontally. Any suggestions would be
  most appreciated. Also suggestions on which PDA is the best for this sort of
  thing.
  Thank you!
