Beg, steal or borrow a proprietary diabetes software package.

 Of course you can load your results manually into a programme such as EXCEL
( or electronically in db format, though I haven't tried that) but it would
be such a hassle to get the output you want. The great thing about the
meter's memory and the specifically-designed programmes is that they mark
the end of diary-keeping. Let's make the technology work for us, not the
other way round!

Ask Medisense to make you a better offer than 99 for their package (like
free, for instance) or you will change your meter - they make their money on
the strips anyway, so they should take notice.

I have used the original One Touch programme, a primitive DOS version which
made only limited mathematical calculations, a programme called GLUCOM
(advertised in Balance) which makes the graphs you mention, as well as the
famous standard deviation calculation I have been binding on about, but I
think it is now overtaken by newer things in terms of functionality.

For the last two years I have loaded my data into the current One Touch
programme, on my specialist's PC when I see him, and this provides a
comprehensive set of analyses. No doubt there are other programmes which
perform comparable functions.

Hope this helps.
