Replacement OneTouch logbooks for recording blood glucose levels are available at no cost at the OneTouch website (shoponetouch.com). A package of three checkbook-sized logbooks also is available at minimal cost.
A detailed logbook is an important tool for the management of diabetes, explains the American Diabetes Association. Tracking blood sugar readings, carbohydrate counts, food intake, physical activity and other significant aspects of daily life helps the diabetic and his physician determine or modify the treatment plan.
Detailed logging is time-consuming and often difficult. However, even limited logging is useful at certain times, such as when a diabetic is starting a new medication, when he is ill or when he is taking insulin.
