Diabetes affects over 200 million people worldwide and the numbers are only growing. As the daughter of a juvenile diabetic, the most important thing a diabetic can do is maintain control over their blood sugar levels. The first step is monitoring their insulin levels, weight, and what foods they eat. In the past, log books were used to track sugar levels before each meal, calories, foods eaten, and how much insulin was taken. In this day and age, how many people still use pen and paper? Wouldn't it be easier to just use your BlackBerry and bring it with your to the doctor's office? Now you can, with iRecordit Diabetes Sugar Glucose and Health Tracker by Communiteq Systems Inc.

How are you the daughter of a juvenile diabetic? I can't figure it out. Is your daughter a diabetic? Juvenile diabetes is a tough disease for kids. Good luck. Bayer makes the Contour USB that plugs into your computer and a different meter that incorporates checking your blood sugar into a video game.

So to answer your question yes I am the daughter of a Type I diabetic (for over 50 years) and I always try to find new ways to help her.

Ok. I am aware of the differences in type I and II diabetes. I did not know that once diagnosed as a juvenile you kept the moniker. I guess it does make sense to use the term that way, although working in medicine I have rarely heard an adult refer to themselves or a loved one above the age of 20 as having juvenile diabetes which is where my confusion arose. I certainly was not poking fun of or pointing out errors in your post (I found it informative and relevant as my wife was just diagnosed with gestational diabetes). Thank you for your reply and clarification.

I apologize. We're old fashioned in our house and I guess we've always kept the moniker even after they redid the type classications.

To Tgolden069: How can Ms. Erlich be the daughter of a Juvenile Diabetic? Shhh, it's a secret, but wouldn't that have made Ms. Erlich born to a juvenile diabetic? Juvenile diabetics can have kids you know. What am I missing here?

Tgolden0609: Juvenile Diabetes is a term that has been used for ages, and you don't need to be in the medical profession to know this! It is insulin dependent diabetes and is a silent killer in it's own way. The diagnosis of Juvenle Diabetes Never Changes. Onset usually comes with Age and/or Obesity ( or being overweight for long periods of time). This onset diabetes is called Type 2 Diabetes, and Juvenile Diabetes, is also known as Type 1 (insulin Dependent). Juvenile Diabetes runs in my family on my father's side, and it is called Juvenile Diabetes for the life of the person (also Type 1). Again, no need to be in the medical field as you say you are to know this. Sorry about your wife being diagnosed with gestational diabetes, which usually comes with a pregnancy, and "can" disappear after the pregnancy is over. There is a chance that the pregnancy can also trigger the diabetes to continue on even after the birth (Mary Tyler Moore kept the diabetes after her pregnancy ended and it was called Juvenile Diabetes for her too).

I'm not sure how helpful this would be. These days, they make the blood sugar monitors so that they are easily downloadable. It might be worth tracking what you eat though although it seems like doing this on a BB might be cumbersome.

I just downloaded this app this am and deleted 5 minutes later. Its too confusing to figure out and they way I read my meter and measure my insulin could not be imputed in a manner to be read correctly.
