My Diabetes Care Plan monitoring tool

It is very important for diabetes patients to keep their blood glucose in the normal range. This is best accomplished through self-monitoring of blood glucose and documentation of the results using this convenient patient tool. The results can be shared with a healthcare professional at each appointment and be used to make adjustments to food, exercise and/or medication on an ongoing basis.
