    Hey Viktor,

    We use Diabetes Pilot for our desktop and PDA. It keeps track of all our son's records (BG, Food, Meds, Exercise...etc...), and it allows us to look at and print up a variety of reports. We can look at BG by hour or by type (such as before breakfast, after lunch, before workout...you name it). We can look at how much insulin he's taking when. Really, we can customize the reports to whatever we need. They make it incredibly easy to see where doing great and what needs work. The program also comes with it's own food database that lists nutritional values (including those ever important carbs) of plenty of foods. So far, we LOVE it. It's quicker and easier than trying to keep up a logbook. Plus, because we have a PDA, it goes everywhere with us.

    I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but I hope it helps.

    Jana,

    thanks for your reply. i will definitely look into it once i am better with self-management. but for now, i'm actually looking for an actual person who helps with diabetes management.

    :eek: Oops. Now I feel a little silly...hehe. I guess you can tell I'm a little excited about the computer program.

    Check with your local hospitals. They offer classes for diabetes control that are most generally paid for by your medical insurance.
