8 months into my son’s diabetes journey, the logging is getting to be a real grind for him. I’m starting to wonder if it’s all necessary. I can certainly see how logging was helpful at the beginning and during the couple of times we were experiencing atypical numbers (generally when he has been ill), but is this really something he needs to do day in and day out for the foreseeable future? Is it something that could be reserved for those times we’re trying to figure something out? If he’s relatively steady the majority of the time, does he really need to write down every bg reading and every carb he eats along with every injection amount?
His meter has a memory and we download it regularly, so we have a method to look at bg results going backward. When he gets his pump in the next couple of weeks, we’ll also have his carbs and boluses (bolusi?) recorded for analysis, right? So, can we at some point dispense with the pen & paper tracking?
Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts.
